Preserving Digital Evidence in the Digital Age: eDiscovery Best Practices

In the digital age, preserving digital evidence has evolved considerably. Jeffrey Wolff from IPRO discusses that evolution in his latest article.

In the article post titled Preserving Digital Evidence: Safeguarding Your Case in the Digital Age (available here on LinkedIn), Jeffrey defines the preservation of evidence and explains the basics of who is responsible for preserving evidence and how the process works. He also outlines the most common challenges of preservation and set out a few best practices for preserving digital evidence. Finally, he looks at in-place data preservation, explains how it differs from traditional preservation, and discusses technology that makes it possible.

Organizations are storing increasingly large volumes of data, and legal teams can no longer identify all relevant information by simply searching file folders or physical hard drives. As of 2022, over 60% of corporate data was stored in the cloud—but that data isn’t all in one place. Instead, most organizations now store data across multiple cloud-based as well as onsite repositories, which makes it hard to identify relevant information using traditional means.


These and other challenges have changed the paradigm for preserving digital evidence today.
