Electronic discovery (known as e-discovery) is the electronic aspect of identifying, collecting and producing electronically stored information (ESI) in response to a request in a lawsuit or investigation. The Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) is the stablished and accepted framework by e-discovery practitioners. Commonly, the “left-hand side” of EDRM is used to refer to the steps containing information governance, identification, preservation and collection through legal hold requests (Hold/Preserve/Collect) and the “right-hand side” refers to processing, review, analysis, production and presentation (Processing/ Review/Production). There are a number of solutions to manage the right-hand side of the EDRM model at the expense of the left-hand side. However, this overlooked part of the e-discovery process is complex and can be a source for costly errors. These errors increase operational costs, lead to potentially expensive sanctions, adversely affect the organization’s reputation and negatively affect employee morale.
