What is eDiscovery?

Electronic discovery, or eDiscovery, has become an essential part of modern law enforcement and prosecution practices. As technology continues to advance, more and more evidence is being stored electronically, which makes it critical for law enforcement and prosecutors to have the necessary tools to effectively navigate eDiscovery. 

eDiscovery refers to the process of identifying, collecting, processing, reviewing, and producing electronically stored information (ESI) that is relevant to the case at hand. This can include data from computers, smartphones, social media platforms, and other electronic devices and sources. 

Implementing eDiscovery

To effectively manage eDiscovery, law enforcement and prosecutors must have a solid understanding of the legal and technical aspects involved in the process. This includes knowledge of data privacy laws, data security measures, and the use of specialized software and tools to efficiently collect, process, and analyze large volumes of electronic data.
