Are You Ready for these E-Discovery Data Sources?

Eight years on from the last set of major changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) governing e-discovery, you might think that the practice had settled down into a comfortable status quo. That could hardly be farther from the truth. Since 2015, data volumes–and data sources–have continued their
explosive growth. The total amount of data generated in a year is estimated to have increased eightfold since 2015, and the diversity of channels through which people communicate has increased dramatically as well. Organizations that might have used Word and Excel, email, and phone calls now have to deal with texts, Slack and other instant messaging platforms, ephemeral messaging platforms, social media, and more. And all of these platforms are fair game for discovery.
