Learn how to defensibly release legal holds to avoid costly over-preservation of data.
The case has closed. The appellate process is over. Time to release the legal hold right? Well for some yes, but for the majority of organizations the answer is unfortunately no. Organizations fail to develop consistent processes around the release of legal holds, resulting in the over-preservation of electronically stored information (ESI). Not only does retaining this ESI result in increased storage costs but more importantly for legal teams, it exposes organizations to increased legal risk down the road as ESI that could have been safely deleted can be tied to future new cases.
In this webcast, information governance experts from Exterro and RSD share processes that enable legal and IT teams to delete irrelevant ESI through the use of timely and defensible legal hold releases.
Viewers will learn how to:
- Simplify and automate the enforcement and tracking of case details and underlying legal holds.
- Manage concurrent — possibly overlapping – legal holds associated with multiple matters, avoiding inadvertent releases of information due to confusion about hold status.
- Ensure defensible and prompt disposal of information scattered across multiple repositories when legal matters or cases are resolved.
- Avoid the common mishap of “stranded holds” in underlying repositories and ambiguity over the legal and compliance status of information assets
