Numerous external pressures are driving the need for today’s legal, compliance, and ediscovery operating models to be dynamic. Electronic data continues to grow exponentially. Organizations are more often moving data to cloud-based systems in which new functionality affecting your processes is rolled out weekly. Laws and regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), require changes to data management and auditing across borders. In light of all of these changes, understanding the strengths and weaknesses of your ediscovery program and having a proactive plan for ensuring you are prepared for litigation is more important than ever.
According to a recent survey conducted by the Compliance, Governance, and Oversight Council (CGOC) and the eDiscovery Reference Model (EDRM), “75% of Global 1,000 companies are vulnerable to fines and sanctions in ediscovery cases because they fail to keep up with data management objectives.” In the same study, 85 percent of respondents pointed to cross-departmental collaboration as a key to data management and many blamed a department other than their own for failing to meet objectives. These issues leave legal and compliance departments uncertain about their readiness to act quickly in the face of anticipated litigation and regulatory investigations, and with little visibility into cost drivers.
