We communicate, transact business, and socialize electronically as never before, so it's no surprise that virtually all business records are created and kept in electronic form. That electronic data resides everywhere - on computers, Blackberries and portable devices, servers, backup tapes. When organizations and individuals reasonably anticipate litigation, they are under an obligation to preserve all relevant electronically stored information, but with the tangled web of electronic data that is stored in so many places (often subject to conflicting rules and laws about the storage of that data), it is very difficult to understand the legal obligations and implement them. E-discovery Plain & Simple discusses the world of electronically stored information and discovery through the viewpoints of two international experts in this field, an attorney and information technology consultant. This book explains technology and the legal issues involved in how we communicate and store electronic information in a "plain English" fashion, with charts, checklists, simple images and diagrams that are designed for readers with little, if any, information technology background. E-Discovery Plain & Simple is a key source of information for attorneys; corporate legal and compliance departments; small business owners and those who assist them who need to understand their legal obligations in this area and have them explained in clearly and concisely. Attorneys, paralegals and litigation support professionals: Whether you are new to or skilled in electronic discovery, learn cost-effective strategies that you can implement immediately, including the right questions to ask during depositions or client interviews; how to prepare targeted requests for email, metadata, and electronically stored information; and how to conserve resources when preserving documents in connection with litigation.
