What is an eDiscovery archive?

An eDiscovery archive is a secure repository for electronically stored information (ESI) relevant to legal matters. It helps organizations meet eDiscovery compliance requirements by ensuring the long-term preservation, accessibility, and defensibility of ESI. Increasingly, firms are using cloud-based eDiscovery platforms for compliance data management purposes.

What are eDiscovery regulations?

eDiscovery regulations govern the electronic collection, preservation, and production of information relevant to legal matters. Examples include the US Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) and the UK’s Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) Part 31, both outlining requirements for electronically stored information in legal proceedings.

Does eDiscovery archiving benefit internal operations?

Yes, eDiscovery archiving goes beyond legal compliance. Many eDiscovery solutions provide benefits for internal operations, including helping to achieve improved information search, as well as facilitating collaboration, preventing data loss, and supporting broader regulatory compliance.

Additionally, eDiscovery archiving provides valuable historical data for legal and risk management purposes. It also saves countless hours and improves efficiency by removing the need to manually search and trawl through communications data.
