As the much anticipated revisions to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) have taken affect, organizations now have more clarity regarding their obligations to preserve electronically stored information (ESI) that may be required for litigation. However, with the volume of electronic communication doubling every 18 months, and with 4.9 billion connected devices creating ESI on phones, tablets, TVs, kitchen appliances, cars, home security systems, etc. – what exactly are “reasonable” preservation steps?

Watch this educational webinar as we will review the FRCP changes that pertain to ESI preservation including Rule 26, and discuss the updated Rule 37(e) – Failure to Preserve, and its impact on information governance and preservation practices. Specifically, we will address:

  • The impact of revised rules on current Identification and collection practices;
  • The implications on information retention and disposition policies;
  • The growing risk of reliance on individual custodians for preservation;
  • The need to address ‘information in the wild’ as part of preservation efforts

We will conclude with a brief overview of the capabilities of Actiance / Exterro to address these new requirements with solutions designed to help you reduce preservation risks.
