If you’re involved in eDiscovery in any way, you’ve undoubtedly come across JSON files. These files increasingly act as the way in which we access and interact with digital evidence—especially as the limitations of screenshot evidence are highlighted by courts. But what exactly is a JSON file? And why are so many legal professionals absolutely frustrated with this format?
Imagine for a second that you need to collect evidence from someone’s Facebook or Twitter account. Like a surprising number of criminals, the person has just posted something incredibly incriminating that could really help your case. However, there’s also a good chance that they’ll come to their senses and delete the post. The evidence can disappear at any moment—so you need to act quickly.
Since the onset of COVID19 organizations are deploying enterprise team collaboration tools (ETC) at a rapid rate. One key challenge is that all messagedata created in these platforms can lead to compliance issues that have the potential to spiral out of control. The smart solution? An enterprise-grade archiving solution that can help organizations collect, store, and monitor their ETC data.
Ransomware attacks are on the rise, but sophisticated dark web forensics and tools are helping investigators to transform the dark web from a murky and lawless online environment, into a treasure trove of evidence and information. In the 1900s, organised crime was personified by Al Capone, Frank Costello and John Gotti — infamous names that are still known today, even though they operated in a limited geographical area.
In the spring of 2021, Pagefreezer partnered with the Association of Corporate Counsel to examine how legal teams are dealing with new data sources, such as team collaboration tools (like Slack and Microsoft Teams) and video conferencing platforms (like Zoom).
Documentation and data in modern business are generated at a rapid pace, both on and offline. A wide variety of industries, such as banking and the financial sector, have to manage thousands of different types of documents regularly. Keeping up with this cumulative documentation can be difficult and costly. A digitized, paperless business means an increase of the office’s organization, work efficiency and more accurate results.
Pagefreezer recently partnered with the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) to create a report that examines how in-house legal teams are dealing with modern data sources. The report, called the Collecting Online Data for eDiscovery & Litigation Readiness Report, surveyed 211 in-house counsels across 23 industries and 22 countries.
There’s nothing quite like an unexpected year-long period of remote work to highlight gaps and inefficiencies in an organization’s information governance (IG) strategies. Thanks to the events of 2020, there was an explosion of data sources across most organizations—from team collaboration platforms (Slack, MS Teams, etc.) and video conferencing tools (Zoom, Google Meet, Cisco Webex), to mobile text messages, company websites, and social media accounts—and many companies recognized the fact that more mature IG strategies were needed to successfully manage this data and reduce risk.
Electronic communication has come a long way in a few short decades. In 2006, Rule 34 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure was amended to confirm that discovery of electronically stored information stood on equal footing with discovery of paper documents.
The events of 2020 highlighted two major challenges that modern in-house legal teams face. First, there has been an explosion of data sources across most organizations. From team collaboration platforms (Slack, MS Teams, etc.) and video conferencing tools (Zoom, Google Meet, Cisco Webex), to mobile text messages, company websites, and social media accounts, companies are faced with new kinds of ESI being generated in real-time throughout their organizations.
