“What You Got” is Gone, Here are Five Things You Should Have Already Done About It: eDiscovery Best Practices

“Alex, I’ll take “80’s glam metal rock bands for $200”.  Let’s face it, any time that someone cross-references current day pandemic forensic and eDiscovery challenges to a notable song from an 80’s glam metal rock band, I’m going to take notice.  When it has some great advice for organizations out there regarding what to do about those forensic and eDiscovery challenges, even better.  And, these are things your organization should have done already, but the good news is that you still can.

Compliance DS discusses all of this in their new article Know What Ya Got: 5 Forensic Challenges as the Pandemic Continues, starting with a “blast from the past” reference to the 80’s band Cinderella and their “power ballad” Don’t Know What You Got (Till It’s Gone).  The article identifies five forensic challenges related to eDiscovery, how they are magnified with the pandemic and what to do about them.  I won’t steal their thunder – you can check out their article here.  It’s literally “a Cinderella story” (thanks, folks, I’m here all week).  😉

BTW, if you haven’t checked out Compliance’s new logo and web site, you should – it’s spectacular!  If I were part of an organization looking to design (or re-design) our web site, their site would be a great place to start to see how to do it well.  It’s that good.


Also, BTW, do you know how many times the video of that Cinderella song has been viewed on YouTube?  Check it out – you’ll be shocked.

So, what do you think?  Has your organization addressed forensic challenges brought about by the pandemic?  Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
