At any time, and usually with little forewarning, regulators can call on a business to submit correctly archived data. The way in which data is stored and used is closely regulated for any company that uses data. That means every company, although compliance regulations tend to be more intense in sectors such as financial services and insurance, healthcare, life sciences and energy.
From emails to social media, voicemails, presentations, documents and spreadsheets, through to CRM data, any information can suddenly become far more significant than it may have seemed when initially created or stored; especially if stored unwittingly. Any platform on which the information is stored can also suddenly require interrogation. Devices can include desktop computers, laptops, servers, smartphones, tablets, backup tapes, and even employees’ home computers and other personally-owned devices.
eDiscovery covers broader aspects that just compliance. It protects the responsiveness of the business if the management team is ever called upon in litigation. The team may wish to undertake informal early case assessments, or locate potentially damaging content in employees’ emails or social media posts.
