Kroll Ontrack Launches Second Annual New Frontiers in Ediscovery Report
Kroll Ontrack , the leading global provider of ediscovery technologies and services to companies involved in litigation and investigations, today announced the launch of the second edition of its annual New Frontiers in Ediscovery Report.
The report highlights the continued and rapid international expansion in the use of ediscovery techniques and technologies by law firms and their clients as well as ongoing progress made in the capabilities of ediscovery itself and its inclusion in an ever expanding range of business processes.
Tim Phillips, Managing Director of Kroll Ontrack International Legal Technologies, said: “The use of ediscovery in litigation and regulatory compliance shows no signs of slowing down and is increasingly being adopted within general business itself. There is growing interest in technologies such as Predictive Coding and mobile ediscovery solutions used onsite as companies seek to reduce the cost of litigation and the risks associated with transferring data across borders. Countries in Europe that were traditionally hesitant about adopting ediscovery, notably Spain, Italy and those in Scandinavia, are now seeing the benefits of using sophisticated legal technologies such as predictive coding.
“There is also a marked trend by corporates all over the world to use ediscovery to proactively pre-empt problems, whether that means investigating third party supplier behaviour or analysing potential instances of bribery and corruption. More and more we are seeing ediscovery being used to anticipate problems before they occur, rather than reacting to them when they are already a serious - and potentially damaging issue - to address.
“Another noticeable development in this year’s report is the gap between the adoption of ediscovery in Western economies and those in the East, including China, Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong. This gap is shrinking quickly along with the emergence of new legislation and regulation relating to compliance and competition including the Counter-Terrorism Law of the People’s Republic of China. As the global leader in ediscovery, we believe it is important for us to continue monitoring these changes and ensuring organisations and their law firms are kept up to speed with developments.”
The new report outlines what’s happening with ediscovery and looks at the impact of changing data privacy regimes in different regions around the world, in the wake of seismic shifts caused by the cancellation of the US EU Safe Harbor, the emergence of the General Data Protection Regulation and Brexit in Europe. It also tracks developments in Digital Forensics behind the Lab Door; ediscovery technology and how organisations are using ediscovery to avoid corporate scandals. It includes valuable insights into how Kroll Ontrack works with Kroll, the global leader in risk mitigation, compliance, investigations, security, and incident response solutions, in complex, cross-border multidisciplinary investigations involving multiple jurisdictions and unique global challenges.
