E-Discovery and E-Disclosure 2013: The Ongoing Journey to Proactive Information Governance

executive summary Executive Summary

Evolving technologies are expanding the need for effective electronic discovery in legal and regulatory matters to enterprise organizations of all sizes. Social media, mobile data and the BYOD trend have changed the landscape, and e-discovery isn't just for big cases tried by big law firms anymore. This sets the stage for a shift from traditional reactive e-discovery practices to more proactive 'information governance' initiatives. However, while lawyers may be enthusiastic about the prospect of comprehensive information governance as a means to reduce litigation e-discovery risks, 451 Research data and recent case law suggest that the message may not yet be reaching this potential new market, as non-lawyers, senior executives and IT staff at SMBs are not placing a high priority on these e-discovery challenges. This report examines the state of the e-discovery market, including the impact of assisted-review technologies, data-privacy regulations and the explosion of big data.
