Discovery in a Disappearing World

Blog Info


In this CLE webinar, presented by TransPerfect Legal Solutions (TLS), learn from leading forensics experts on best practices and pitfalls to defensibly acquire data from mobile device applications and cloud-based collaboration and storage platforms, including data sources that are ephemeral-by-design.

The popularity and usage of mobile device applications and cloud-based collaboration and storage platforms has grown immensely in recent years in large and small businesses alike. The ability to connect a workforce through collaborative software has helped to increase operational efficiency, organization, and scalability. At the same time, an adverse relationship with legal discovery has occurred; these applications and systems are usually cloud-based, cannot be collected with traditional forensic tools and often export data in formats that are problematic for discovery review platforms. Furthermore, many of these platforms are ephemeral-by-design, meaning that data retention is challenging at best and impossible at worst. This presentation will discuss cutting-edge approaches to discovery collections and review from mobile device and cloud platforms. Topics we will cover include defensible mobile device acquisition, mobile device legal review options, ephemeral messaging applications and how to defensibly obtain data from cloud-based platforms like Slack, Jira, Confluence, Salesforce, Zendesk, and the like.

This course has been approved for a one-hour CLE credit in Pennsylvania, California, Florida (technology), and Texas. Reciprocal credit is also provided for any jurisdiction reciprocal with California, Florida, Pennsylvania, and Texas.
