When a legal hold is required, IT plays a critical role, ensuring that the mechanics of collection and preservation happen correctly. But it can be difficult to bridge the gap between legal requirements and IT activities. While attorneys must supervise the process, your IT staff are the first responders who will execute key aspects of identifying custodians and data sources and gathering and preserving data. They need to understand the legal obligations involved to ensure defensibility and protect the enterprise.

This on-demand webinar is for anyone who is even remotely involved in litigation holds, collection and preservation. Our speakers will provide expert advice on working with your IT department to minimize the risk of spoliation and improve the efficiency and defensibility of legal holds.

During this on-demand webinar, you’ll learn:

  • What IT needs to know about legal preservation and compliance
  • How to work with IT to establish a written plan to execute legal holds
  • The appropriate balance between custodian involvement and attorney supervision
  • The mechanics of defensible identification and collection
  • Tips on collecting data from enterprise systems and commonly overlooked sources

We’ll also address questions and concerns about Microsoft’s Office 365 Security & Compliance Center and its effectiveness as a tool for legal holds and collections.
