    Event Synopsis:
    In the past several years, social media platforms have exploded. Just as email changed the landscape of eDiscovery during litigation in the 1990s, social media is quickly becoming one of the fastest growing components of any Electronically Stored Information (ESI) discovery plan. Understanding how to quickly and ethically preserve and harvest social media data is critical for attorneys in almost every type of litigation.

    However, despite the countless advantages of Social media in eDiscovery, the total volume of information and data collected has created unprecedented challenges for litigators and court systems. In order to minimize the risks and legal challenges, litigators and other legal professionals must be well-versed with the fundamentals as well as the complexities of using social media in eDiscovery.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with a comprehensive analysis of the fundamentals as well as recent developments in capturing Social Media evidence during eDiscovery. This is perfect for anyone who wants to learn more about the tactical advantages and ethical pitfalls of capturing, using and monitoring social media data.

    Key topics include:
    Key Social Media Platforms that Yield the Best eDiscovery Evidence
    Benefits and Ethical Pitfalls of Capturing/Protecting Social Media
    Balancing Privacy and Security Concerns
    Best Practices for Ensuring Social Media Discoverability and Use in Litigation
    Handling/Integrating Social Media Data Into Existing Workflows and Tools
