First Steps to Leveraging Purview eDiscovery

“What do you recommend to enterprise legal teams wanting to use Purview?” That was my favorite question from yesterday’s eDiscovery Channel chat with Tom O’Connor and Doug Austin. We also delved into how Microsoft is redefining ‘documents’ and ‘custodianship’ in a collaborative architecture. I thought it worth while to formalize my general approach for incorporating Purview eDiscovery in your eDiscovery-Compliance lifecycle.               Getting Started [...]

I see the productivity and even security advantages of reducing file access, downloads, etc. The preview functionality does not work for files marked Confidential or that a user does not have access to. It does raise questions that I was not able to find answers for. Image from [...]

Microsoft announced changes to transcript storage locations, default access permissions and more this month at Build 2024. I added my perspective notes to the Teams blast text below.

Microsoft Recall = User Ephemeral ESI

Many forensic peers would call that an ‘accessibility feature’ for discovery scenarios. Will savvy plaintiff counsel add language to their demand letters requiring Recall enablement and content preservation for key custodians in scenarios with ongoing behavior issues? This is essentially user ephemeral data. [...]
