Unlocking Evidence with Digital Forensics

Digital Forensic Best Practices for Boutique Law Firms Dealing with the Shifting ESI Landscape.

Key evidence does not always present itself in a standard eDiscovery collection. A case could hinge on location data that can be retrieved from an iPhone or on recovering a deleted work email. Digital forensics allows for the extraction of data beyond what is typically available in a normal collection. This webinar will identify best practices, planning, and execution of a digital forensic collection. Digital forensics is not always necessary in eDiscovery collections, however, you won’t know what you are possibly missing unless you understand what is potentially available.

Agenda

  • What is Digital Forensics
  • Digital Forensic Best Practices
  • Planning and Executing Collection
  • Types of Digital Media
  • Computers and Hard Drives
  • Mobile Devices
  • Cloud and Webmail
  • Hash Values

New Document Compare Feature!

LEP has added a new built-in feature on the Doc tab of the Doc Viewer allowing a user to compare two documents within a case. This can be extremely helpful when reviewing email chains and near duplicate documents. The new compare feature can display the documents side by side or line by line while highlighting all the differences. For more information, see tech note here.

LEP Supports Google Chrome MS Office Native Doc Viewer

Upon ingestion, LEP will attempt to process and convert compatible files to PDF for ease of review and will maintain and make available for download the native file in the Originals tab of the LEP Doc Viewer. When native review is preferred, Lexbe recommends a Google Chrome add-on that populates the LEP Doc Viewer Originals tab with a native viewer that can open MS Office documents. This is particularly helpful when needing to review Excel and PowerPoint files. The viewer will display these files as they would appear in their native program. For Excel files, this includes multiple sheets and for Powerpoint files this includes the presentation layout with comments and/or notes. There are many advantages to using the Google Chrome MS Office native doc viewer add on: speeds review in native format without having to download file, includes read-only native program functionality and navigation, provides option to download native file directly, contains tab views supported for Excel spreadsheets, and is offered directly by Google in the Chrome browser (compliance standards upheld). This add-on is supported for Google Chrome on Windows and MAC. For more information, see help page here
