Today’s announcement of the Relativity-X1 Enterprise integration had me puzzled at first. After all, Relativity Collect has been integrated with X1 Discovery files/emails since 2019. So what is the difference? Digging into the announcement and their documentation, my take on the new integration with X1 Enterprise Platform is the indexing of [...]
Got great feedback after my last skirmish with a phishing attempt so here is today’s attempt: [Greg] Hello, how may I help you? [digitized voice] This is Amazon security calling in regard to a recent $1499 purchase. Our system flagged this purchase because of suspicious elements and we need you to [...]
Thanks to my friend Jason Velasco for drawing my attention to the article Hidden Dangers of Microsoft 365’s Power Automate and eDiscovery Tools. Hitesh Sheth at DarkReading.com is extrapolating from a massive data collection study from 4 million Cognito Detect for Office 365 customers by Vectra. I am not sure that [...]
I want to thank you all for the flood of responses to my tech alert. Our peers stepped up to confirm this and other potential issues experienced in Microsoft 365 (M365) and other market leading eDiscovery tech. Most have been aware of various issues going back years. Your feedback confirms my [...]
For enterprise on M365 E3/E5 that have been running keyword searches to export data from OneDrive and SharePoint for discovery in 2020, you may have had a problem. This will be a long piece, so I will try to pack the important parts up front. Last August, while testing the new [...]
If you missed the news, Reveal took a $200M round of funding from K1 Capital and promptly acquired Brainspace. I was lucky enough to get an early briefing on this while brainstorming with the Reveal team on using their platform to analyze the Parler data to support the FBI investigations. In [...]
One of my Litsupport team wearing the departmental t-shirts. Used with permission Blame Jonathan Maas for reminding me of my 5000:1 rule from the Enron email review. “For every 5,000 emails we review someone gets fired.” To put that rule in late 1990’s context, everyone having a corporate email [...]
In the days of on-site policy assessment engagements, I loved asking random attendees to step away from their laptops so that I could ‘compliance check’ them. For new or stuffy clients I would ask the MIS/Security stakeholder to pick some random ‘safe’ machines on the floor for the check. Inevitably, every [...]
I fell down the eDiscovery patent rabbit hole while researching Exterro’s recent press release on the patent granted on their Gateway Coordinator. You should never take press releases, white papers, blogs, etc. at face value. Go to the source when possible. In my USPTO search for the announced patent, I stumbled [...]
Relativity’s acquisition of VerQu makes a lot of sense from the corporate RelativityOne customer perspective. Once integrated, the VerQu Hydra connectors have the potential to dramatically expand the scope of holds, in-place searches and collections. The pandemic has escalated adoption of Teams, video conferencing and a myriad of collaboration platforms that [...]
I had planned on taking a break this week because I hope that all of you are too busy with loved ones to read blogs. Even mine. Sitting at my desk waiting for an expert scoping call I realized that responsible professionals lucky enough to be able to work remote have [...]
NOTE: Although this is a real email thread, it does not contain my usual technical, process or market perspectives. Instead, I got tired of the barrage of emails offering me YOUR contact information, so I decided to expand my usual Request to be Forgotten and run down exactly whom was selling [...]
I wanted to take advantage of Rob Robinson’s timely release of his Winter 2021 eDiscovery Pricing Survey Results and compare a few key prices with those I calculated in my blog analysis of the TAR fight order in Lawson v. Spirit Aerosystems. I appreciate and encourage Rob to keep running his [...]
Provider pricing and custodial metrics are often impossible to find because so much of the eDiscovery market insists on wrapping sales in NDAs. That can be frustrating to a consultant who specializes in solution proposals, ROI analysis and RFP engagements. So you can imagine how happy I am to share the [...]
The pace of corporate migrations to Microsoft 365 (the new name for Office 365) has accelerated over the last nine years (2011 launch). I have supported these migrations of most of my long term clients with policy reviews, preservation audits, workflow adaptions and more. Two to five years post-migration my health [...]
