eDiscovery and Legal Holds FAQ
eDiscovery or electronic data discovery is the process of identifying, collecting and reviewing electronically stored information (ESI) in the initial phase of a litigation or investigation.
A Legal Hold is used to preserve all forms of electronically stored information (ESI) for potential litigation matters or investigations.
The failure to identify and preserve all the electronically stored information (ESI) that is relevant to a legal action or litigation may lead to a claim of spoliation of evidence. This can result in massive fines from the court or even more serious sanctions like dismissal of claims or defenses.
Alfresco Governance Services combines both Records Management and Information Lifecycle Management in a single solution to help organizations ensure compliance and better manage content storage—potentially reducing storage costs. By utilizing Alfresco’s AI services and sophisticated rules engine, content storage can be automatically optimized for business needs, cost savings and compliance.
The eDiscovery & Legal Hold process is frequently complex due to the sheer volume of structured and unstructured data that needs to be scanned and evaluated, resulting in massive scale and costly e-discovery tasks. With Alfresco Governance Services, organizations can speed up the eDiscovery process and put active content as well as records on multiple holds across various content management systems to prevent changes and suspend disposition as part of the hold process.
