Electronic discovery (also called e-discovery or eDiscovery) is electronic data that is sought, located, secured, and searched with the intent of using it as evidence in a civil or criminal legal case. DTI Data is well aware that state and federal courts are place a high burden on the requesting party. We assist our clients by using creative techniques, while strictly adhering to legal standards and forensically sound methodologies. Our experts have consulted in a wide variety of situations from complex litigation to basic analysis of computers. We pride ourselves on helping clients find hidden information that many times turns out to win the case.
Whether you are the requesting party or the producing party, DTI Data can assist you throughout the entire process from the early phases of planning to the final stages of production.
Electronic discovery requests must take into consideration the vast amount of digital data, not only standard email and documents, but databases, text messages, log files, system files, swap files, hidden files, deleted or lost data, and more. This type of information is retrievable and usable if requested correctly and collected in a forensically sound manner. By imaging and indexing the digital information we will make the process easier for your organization to organize and understand the corpus of data.
Electronically Stored Information (ESI)
DTI assists clients with the collection of Electronically Stored Information (ESI). In addition to collecting, preserving and producing ESI, DTI also offers an online hosting service for the data. You can review, mark, redact, etc. the data on the hosting service. On a secure server, users can redact data, mark items as privileged or produced, add comments and much more.
Another major benefit of online hosting is that the files and data are updated live. Online hosting prevents you and other users from reviewing data that has already been reviewed. Another feature of online hosting is the different levels of access. Data access can be assigned to different users for different sections. This is very beneficial if one party wants to allow opposing counsel access to data as it is reviewed. This would be accomplished by only allowing those users to have access to the data and files that have been marked as produced. Online hosting is not always preferred and data can be produced directly for you in your requested format. Either way, DTI ensures that duplicates will be removed to avoid review of the same data multiple times.
