Collecting Online Data for eDiscovery & Litigation Readiness Report
Executive Summary Extract
The Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) and Pagefreezer present the Collecting Online Data for eDiscovery & Litigation Readiness Report. This report presents the results of a survey conducted in March 2021 of 211 in-house counsel with expertise in data retention and preservation, discovery, and litigation across 23 industries and 22 countries.
The impetus for this report was substantial growth in new data sources that most companies have experienced over the last few years—a trend accelerated massively by the COVID-19 pandemic. Sources such as video conferencing tools, team collaboration platforms, social media accounts, websites, and mobile text messages have greatly increased the amount of ESI that legal departments need to contend with. Moreover, the real-time and dynamic nature of these sources often make them difficult to incorporate into traditional eDiscovery workflows.
This report aims to understand how legal teams are dealing with these new data sources, and to identify key challenges. The results reveal important quantitative insights into the current maturity level of Information Governance (IG) programs and the extent to which legal departments are adequately prepared for the discovery process involved in potential litigation.
