There is an article in the current edition of eForensics Magazine called How KPMG uses EnCase Tools to solve client’s E-Discovery challenges in Canada. It is written by Dominic Jaar of KPMG Canada who is both technically accomplished and one of the best explainers in the business – technical skill and the ability to articulate functions and benefits do not necessarily live in the same hands. I have done several panels with Dominic Jaar over the years and always learn something. Dominic’s article describes the use of Guidance Software’s EnCase eDiscovery for remote collection over clients’ networks, discusses the ever-topical (and never more so than now) data privacy issues which KPMG’s clients face, and describes how KPMG simplifies data transfer, culling, and production; lastly, the article describes how Guidance Software’s EnCase Portable can be used to collect data from clients with offices in remote geographic areas.
Everybody involved in eDiscovery, clients and external lawyers alike, should be familiar with the basic principles of digital investigation and have an understanding of how eDiscovery requirements depend on proper forensic investigations. This article is firmly grounded in practical things, and pulls all these subjects together in a readable way.
