Book Description

Discover the process of e-discovery and put good practices in place.

Electronic information involved in a lawsuit requires a completely different process for management and archiving than paper information. With the recent change to Federal Rules of Civil Procedure making all lawsuits subject to e-discovery as soon as they are filed, it is more important than ever to make sure that good e-discovery practices are in place.

e-Discovery For Dummies is an ideal beginner resource for anyone looking to understand the rules and implications of e-discovery policy and procedures. This helpful guide introduces you to all the most important information for incorporating legal, technical, and judicial issues when dealing with the e-discovery process. You'll learn the various risks and best practices for a company that is facing litigation and you'll see how to develop an e-discovery strategy if a company does not already have one in place.

  • E-discovery is the process by which electronically stored information sought, located, secured, preserved, searched, filtered, authenticated, and produced with the intent of using it as evidence
  • Addresses the rules and process of e-discovery and the implications of not having good e-discovery practices in place
  • Explains how to develop an e-discovery strategy if a company does not have one in place

e-Discovery For Dummies will help you discover the process and best practices of managing electronic information for lawsuits.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to eDiscovery 23 Feb. 2014

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very good introduction to eDiscovery. Covers the important points that a beginner, non-legal technology person needs to know about eDiscovery. More information about the eDiscovery software products ( because software is how eDiscovery is done in today's world ) would make it more useful.

I think this is an excellent resource to go alongside and support or become privvy to e-discovery. If you're new to the field, it's a good book to have to use before a workshop, training course, or program.
