On Wednesday, July 28th, 2010, from noon to 1pm EST, Kelly Twigger of ESI Attorneys will co-host a webinar with John Collins, ESI’s data mapping and technology consultant, on Building and Using an ESI data map. In our last webinar — ESI Data Mapping: The E-discovery Experts Weigh In — Magistrate Judge Paul Grimm told an audience of over 150 participants that the ESI data map is the tool organizations need to understand the sources of ESI in their organizations to prepare for producing ESI in discovery. In this follow up webinar, John Collins will focus first on building the ESI data map — what to think about, how to gather the appropriate information and how far you can go on your own without professional expertise. I will follow with a discussion of how I use the data map to create a guide or “playbook” for outside counsel to use when engaging in e-discovery on behalf of the organization. Together, the ESI data map and E-discovery Guide lay out a reasonable, defensible process for an organization to follow when implementing legal holds, preserving and collecting ESI, as well as reviewing and producing the same ESI in litigation. We’ll discuss where organizations can make the process more economical and efficient and what steps to take to get started now. Register for this free webinar here.
