What can organizations learn from “Deflategate"?

The investigation underscored the problems that can arise when employees text, talk or email on company-issued phones or use their own devices for business, and then the resulting data becomes eDiscovery fodder.

In an era of widespread use of mobile devices by executives and staff, day-to-day management of electronically stored information (ESI) has become much more complex with increasing ramifications downstream in electronic discovery.

In fact, many a judge considers mobile device ESI to be in the “possession, custody or control” of the employer. Even when the employer might deny responsibility for data on a “BYOD” (“Bring Your Own Device”) machine, the court could, in effect, classify the context as being “COPE” (“Company-Owned-Personally-Enabled”).

Do you have an acceptable use policy in place?  One that contemplates eDiscovery?

Learning Objectives

During this highly-informative webinar our expert faculty – a hybrid lawyer-technologist – will use the “Deflategate” situation as a case study to provide companies of all shapes and sizes with practical tips, and proactive steps to avoid risks and costs once in reactive mode in eDiscovery.

  • HOW would Tom Brady and the New England Patriots have fared if the NFL “Deflategate” investigation took place during a typical U.S. lawsuit’s discovery process?
  • WHO creates and stores data encompassed by a company’s eDiscovery preservation, collection and production obligations?
  • WHAT are the keys to implementing policies treading a middle ground between being Big-Brother/Sister and minimizing corporate risks?
  • WHERE are the storage locations that present the greatest current challenges?
  • WHY is “employee privacy” an oxymoron under U.S. law yet a basic civil right under European law?
  • WHEN will the “IOT” (the “Internet of Things”) become the next great frontier in eDiscovery?
