Defensible Collection of Remote Data
Even before COVID-19 forced most of the business world into remote work settings, organizations facing litigation or other legal demands had a growing need to defensibly and efficiently collect electronically stored information located across diverse geographic locations. With an increasingly remote work force, the ability to forensically collect data from mobile devices, personal computers or online/cloud storage accounts can be expected to rise.
Partnering with a service provider who has methods in place to maintain the integrity of the data will help avoid charges of spoliation and will ensure that such data can be authenticated, if needed, in ongoing legal proceedings. Brett Creasy, bit-x-bit’s President and Director of Digital Forensics, and John Unice, the firm’s General Counsel and Executive V.P., discuss the in’s and out’s of remote data collection in the August 28, 2020, issue of the Allegheny County Bar Association’s Lawyers Journal. Feel free to take a moment to read their thoughts and reach out to us with any questions.
