When an Investigation Hits: Strategies for Effective and Rapid Resolution When Your Team is Remote

Investigations are on the rise – and collecting data from remote workforces that use unmonitored applications on personal devices is among the greatest challenges. A delicate balance must be struck between finding potential evidence from new data sources, such as ephemeral messaging apps and social media, and individual data privacy rights. Further, unlike traditional eDiscovery, investigations conducted remotely require coordinated communications and operational management. 

In this CLE-accredited session, hear from leading legal experts on how they have short-circuited often expensive and time-consuming investigations efforts to find the evidence that will tell the story. They will share their experiences on collecting data from remote employees, ephemeral data preservation obligations and effective instant messaging, social media and BYOD policies, project management techniques, and use of targeted analytics approaches to assess potential evidence.
