Consilio webinar today: Audio review – weighing available approaches

Audio discovery represents an increasingly significant component of many eDiscovery exercises. Whilst audio files are most prevalent in, for example, the regulated financial sector, all kinds of companies now create and keep audio files for various purposes; it is no less discoverable than any other form of data, but raises issues which many companies (and their lawyers) might easily overlook.

Audio files do not merely represent bulk volume; whilst one might, just, glean the essentials from an email by running your eye down it, the equivalent exercise with an audio file necessarily takes as long as the recording. First, of course, you have to find the audio files which are potentially relevant, raising questions about search capability.

There is now a range of technologies which make it unnecessary to deal with audio in this way. eDiscovery provider Consilio has been a leader in the development of eDiscovery workflows which build in the capability to identify and review audio.

There is a webinar this afternoon at 1:00 PM EDT called Audio review: weighing available approaches whose subtitle, Avoiding slow, costly and ineffective outcomes when reviewing audio and multimedia files, accurately sets out the panel’s ambitions.

The discussion will consider case law and regulatory procedures, examine eDiscovery workflows which incorporate audio and multimedia, present the pros and cons of different approaches to audio discovery and explore cost-effective ways to conduct audio review properly.

The panellists are Bennett Borden of Drinker Biddle & Reath (and, of course, of the Information Governance Initiative), Michael Flanagan, General Counsel of Consilio, Todd Mansbridge and Robert Wickstrom who are, respectively, responsible for Product Management and client development at Consilio.

Registration is here.
