The eDiscovery process is one that should be controlled by the best and most-proportionate combination of expertise, process, and technology.

At last month's Global Legal Forum in London, keynote speaker Christina Blacklaws presented the idea that more women need to pursue careers in legal tech to ensure bias doesn't get "hardwired" into AI-assisted decision making. According to Blacklaws, the industry's innovations are currently being weighed down by a systemic bias.

Do you care about privacy as much as your customers do?


Via Harvard Business Review

Until recently, there has been little compelling reason for companies to embed privacy considerations deeply into their larger business strategies but that's about to change. As end-users become more aware of the risks tied to their personal data, they're more likely to push for stricter security regulations. A recent article from the Harvard Business Review explains why the security landscape is expected to change rapidly and chaotically over the next several years and why now is the time to think long-term.

It's 2020: Resolve to Get Tech-Savvy

Let me preface this by saying I am not a general technology expert. I went to law school, not MIT. I don’t know how to code, program, design an app or build a website. I contact my IT guy with near-religious regularity.

That said, as a Review Manager at Ricoh eDiscovery, I continually see the benefits of leveraging the latest legal technology to better serve clients. Our document reviews now almost exclusively utilize Relativity Active Learning, which harnesses artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced analytics to streamline the review process.

Why is it Important to Track Custodians?

Jan 21, 2020 1:01:23 PM | Laura Clewley

Imagine you’re working with a file that has a collection of over twenty custodians. In the midst of processing and culling the data, further information is found. If the custodian information had been tracked up to this point, it’s a quick and easy job to include the new documents. If the custodian information hasn’t been tracked, segregating specific custodians could be a timely process – especially if the collection is actively being processed by a team. Today we're sharing why it’s important to track custodians, along with the secret to guaranteeing they're tracked with every document review.

5 Myths of Outsourced Review

Jan 15, 2020 3:01:07 PM | Sean Lynch

A lot of time and effort goes into legal document review — many times, more than counsel can handle internally. Between budgetary constraints and lack of resources on hand, legal departments and law firms often have to look to alternative options to handle the often time-consuming review of electronic documents potentially relevant to their matter. 

Historically, legal outsourcing has brought some skepticism. As the Director of Legal and Compliance Solutions, I've heard all sorts of reasons why it's "best to keep document reviews in-house or with external counsel". Today I'm sharing why — plain and simple — this is untrue when you work with Ricoh eDiscovery. 

Here are the top five myths I've encountered about outsourced document reviews and their truths.

How to Collect, Copy and Move Data Without Changing its Metadata

Dec 17, 2019 11:00:18 AM | Michael Truelove

Metadata is data about data. In a Word file, the document contains all of the data: words, put into paragraphs, displayed on pages. But, as we know, behind the scenes Word also keeps metadata about the document including the author’s name and the date it was created, modified and printed.

In today's Tuesday Tip, we'll be showing you how to collect, copy and move data without accidentally changing the hidden (and extremely important) details about the file. While most eDiscovery tools won’t capture unusual metadata, you can create your own custom fields in Word. These additional fields will allow you to keep track of information that may be useful or pertinent for future reference.

5 Reasons Cleaning Your Data Should Be Your Top New Year’s Resolution

Dec 12, 2019 2:27:12 PM | Natasha Doucas

Bad data is typically categorized as erroneous, duplicative, personal or sensitive in nature, but there's more to it than that. Bad data can also be defined as anything that is stored in an outdated or non-functional legacy software, kept for the purposes of record keeping. Whether it’s the nature of its contents or how it’s being stored, most organizations are increasingly faced with managing the complexities of bad data. What’s worse, the practice of retaining dirty data can cost organizations billions of dollars each year if they are in violation of information and data management policies and procedures.

A major component of eDiscovery is the exchange of documents between parties.

Tuesday's Tip #5 - Document Families (I got it from my Mama!):

The terms “parent” and “child” in eDiscovery are used to identify electronic documents and their attachments. Generally speaking, this is most common with emails – the email being the parent document and the child(ren) being the attachment(s) to the email. Both the email and attachments together are referred to as a “document family”, and just like human families, they can become more complex when emails contain additional emails with attachments (sometimes referred to as grandchildren documents).
