Common Techniques for E-Discovery Preservation White Paper

According to a recent survey, the average large company spends more than $2.5 million per year on e-discovery preservation alone. Fear of data spoliation and sanctions causes many companies to over-preserve resulting in unnecessary costs and added legal liability over time. Controlling preservation costs and risks starts with understanding the various preservation approaches, when and how each should be used and the ways in which they complement each other.

In this white paper, e-discovery experts from PricewaterhouseCoopers and Exterro examine three common preservation techniques and how companies can employ a hybrid preservation approach.

The white paper examines:

  • Key differences between custodian self preservation, preservation by collection and in-place preservation
  • Technology requirements and considerations underlying each preservation approach
  • The steps required to create a tiered preservation strategy that incorporates various approaches
