Epiq Systems has conducted a survey of businesses in the UK, Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands to identify trends relating to electronic disclosure and document review.
The survey reveals a gap between corporations’ confidence in their ability to find key data for litigation or investigations and their monitoring and updating practices. Put shortly, they are not as ready as they ought to be and less prepared than they think they are.
Martin Bonney, Director, International Consulting Services at Epiq said:
“The capture, storage and retrieval of data is a constantly evolving challenge, complicated by the sheer variety of connected and mobile devices that now generate data. Regulatory deadlines for document production can be as short as 14 days. If data is not continually assessed, the ability to respond to requests quickly, accurately and defensibly is severely tested.”
