For those of us working on our 2018 planning, Relativity recently hosted a webinar “2018 State of the eDiscovery Union” offering a rapid-fire rundown of 2018 projections from the eDiscovery community. Our own Gary Hunt, Senior Digital Forensic Examiner and Helen Geib, General Counsel and Practice Support Consultant were some of the experts making predictions. You can read all the predictions on the Relativity blog here.
Gary and Helen’s predictions from the “Shapeshifting Data Sources” section, are below.
“Messaging is the new email. 2018 will see a rapid increase in mobile discovery and social media discovery. Those who are able to integrate mobile data into their regular discovery process will be most successful—as they will see mobile in the context of the entire data set.”
Helen Geib, General Counsel and Practice Support Consultant, QDiscovery
“More and more applications and services are moving to the cloud, limiting what is recoverable from local devices. Being mindful and including these cloud repositories in discovery will be important, as they may be the unique source of pertinent information.”
Gary Hunt, Senior Digital Forensic Examiner, QDiscovery
