How has big data changed e-discovery management?

Join SearchCompliance Thursday, Aug. 21, to discuss how big data has complicated e-discovery management and best practices to avoid legal complications around digital information governance.

Big data creates numerous e-discovery management complications for modern organizations. Huge volumes of structured and unstructured data make it difficult to determine what information should be stored in case it's needed for litigation, and what can be destroyed so it does not come back to bite them. As a result, companies must develop strict data and e-discovery management policies to ensure that relevant information is properly governed and legal and regulatory hassles avoided.

Join SearchCompliance on Twitter Thursday, Aug. 21, at 12 p.m. EDT to discuss e-discovery management in the big data age, as well as digital governance best practices to avoid legal issues. SearchCompliance will lead the event from the site's Twitter handle, @ITCompliance, joined by SearchCompliance editors and experts. Questions will consider cutting-edge tools to assist data discovery, the legal information governance obstacles created by social media and how effective e-discovery management can benefit regulatory compliance.
