How can eDiscovery Streamline Evidence Collection?

Data is everywhere. In 2020, it was reported that the amount of data on the internet hit 64 zetabytes (ZB), which equals to about a trillion gigabytes. By 2025, it’s expected to reach 175 ZB. Obviously, data collection is vital for legal professionals, but as the digital universe continues to grow, the discovery of relevant data will become even more tedious and inefficient.


eDiscovery is more important than ever, but many legal professionals aren’t well-versed in the process.


What is eDiscovery?

eDiscovery is a legal process that involves the identification, preservation, collection, and delivery of electronically stored information (ESI) as evidence in lawsuits or investigations. Specific types of data include emails, audio and video files, social media communications, and documents. The process is kicked off by identifying and preserving relevant ESI in order to make sure the data can’t be changed or deleted. Afterward, the information is analyzed and prepared for use in court. This is where eDiscovery reduces costs by weeding out irrelevant data before the processing happens.


The goal is to produce an impactful volume of evidence for litigation in a way that increases data retention accuracy, ensures the security of ESI needed, and reduces costs.


Some say that in today’s world, data is the new oil, and it’s true. Slack boasts an estimated 35 million daily active users. Other social platforms like Zoom and Microsoft Teams also heavily contribute to the data fueling connections on the internet, and while digital communication offers higher productivity and convenience, our digital footprints are massive. eDiscovery helps identify and collect relevant evidence through accurate processes without sacrificing extra time and funds.
