The Advantages of Onsite Processing During eDisclosure

Onsite Data Processing during eDisclosure can save your Client Time, and Money and also Improve Data Security.

The proper handling of large volumes of data, from identification through to presentation. Significantly decreases the costs of eDisclosure and improves the efficiency of the overall process. The advantages of onsite processing are as follows:

How Much Data Would be Gathered?

Generally, in eDisclosure cases, the initial exercise of data gathering involves casting the net wide. Allowing the gathering of as much data as possible and later culling it down to get at the most relevant documents. In certain circumstances, an eDisclosure exercise can be greatly restricted by a client’s data security measures. 

Clients can often have access to a large amount of privileged or sensitive data which they cannot allow to leave their control. For example, a bank would not be able to release data relating to any clients other than that involved in litigation. Or, a company may act for several different parties and only the data relating to one party may be released.

The Importance of Data Separation

The Importance of Data Separation.
In eDiscovery, data separation refers to the process of categorising and organising electronically stored information (ESI) into distinct groups or categories based on various criteria such as relevance, custodian, file type, or date range.
It may be that the client already deliberately separates their data. This may be done in an organised fashion which would allow a targeted collection. However, there will still be some Electronically Stored Information (ESI) that cannot be so easily divided. For example, emails. In cases such as these, onsite data processing during eDisclosure is required.

Ensuring Secure Data with Client Control

All the data relating to other matters then never leave the control of the client. And, the hardware used to store the data during processing, etc. can be retained by the client for preservation and later destruction. Tackling a sensitive eDisclosure exercise in this way ensures the client’s data remains as secure is essential. 

Here, they require and can also be cost-effective, as the data which leaves the client is already processed and ready to review. This may potentially speed up the whole disclosure exercise too. Furthermore, as only relevant information is gathered, the client can quickly gain an advantage early in a case.
