eDiscovery Advisory is excited to announce we have joined the EDRM as a Bedrock Partner. Partnering with the EDRM provides us the ability to connect and network via events to a global community comprised of multidisciplinary professionals contributing to enhance e-discovery, privacy, security and information governance frameworks, processes, and standards. One such contribution is to the Data Mapping Project, which is designed to document community standards around the creation of a comprehensive inventory of an organization's data. Participating in the Data Mapping Project will be Jason Velasco, our founder and one of our primary advisors. In addition to the Data Mapping Project, the eDiscovery Advisory team will participate in other EDRM projects and participate as subject matter experts for future webinars. On March 2, 2021, eDiscovery Advisory will be spotlighted on the EDRM BrightTALK channel where we will share an overview of the services we provide including our M365 eDiscovery as a Service solution. Stay tuned for more information on that and future events. Read the original press release.

Knowledge & Intelligence through Data: The KinDato Innovation Lab

One of the unique opportunities I have as an advisor working with organizations looking at data information governance and eDiscovery issues is that we have an opportunity to look at the strategic use of data within an organization. Over time what we have learned is that organizations get value and reduce risk from data by making sure there is a combination of Knowledge and Intelligence that is driven by Data, or as we call it…the state of “KinDato”. As part of that effort to improve the use of technology and gain value from data within an organization we built the KinDato Innovation Lab, allowing us to assess and leverage multiple technologies through integration and workflows. In the context of eDiscovery and data management, we look at integrating numerous tools in an agnostic way since we don't have a specific relationship with any specific tool or provider. Our goal is to create effective integrations within a client’s environment particular their technology stack. Every organization that we work with uses different types of technologies to manage both their knowledge and data across their organization. From an eDiscovery viewpoint, this is challenging especially when trying to identify sources of relevant information as well as understanding the value and risk of that data.  At the core of things, it is really all about data and understanding that data from various stakeholder perspectives. The KinDato Innovation Lab is completely agnostic to the technology used in our innovation.  For example, we work with mid-size organizations on leveraging the technology they have in-house specifically around Microsoft M365 Advanced eDiscovery solution. Many organizations can’t spend the money or effort on complex eDiscovery technologies.  They simply want to be able to have an easy to use and defensible workflow for things like third party requests and data subject access requests (DSARs).  The KinDato Innovation Lab worked with the built-in Microsoft tools using PowerShell, Graph API, SharePoint and other automation techniques to build a system within the Microsoft Teams environment to create a defensible workflow for these types of cases.  More complex eDiscovery matters that require a greater effort will of course have a different workflow, but this approach will save clients a significant amount of money and effort allowing them to [...]
