Avacuna LLC, a provider of IT compliance, risk assessment and electronic content management consulting services, today announced the availability of its white paper, "Guidelines for Proactive Ediscovery : Improving Data Accessibility and Simplifying Compliance with Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.”
The white paper is the first release from the company's "Electronic Content & Record Management Best Practices" series and reviews the transformation of digital asset management in contemporary organizations resulting from regulatory obligations, technological changes and the rapidly changing convenience expectations of internal and external users.
Avacuna serves the insurance, banking and financial services markets, and the local government sector. The newly released document addresses the many personalities data can reveal using legal definitions for electronically stored information, and reviews the need for a careful balance between privacy and accessibility while planning Ediscovery policies and procedures.
"Legal precedents, content management and record retention are dynamically evolving as a second generation of internet mobility technologies, social networking and affordable storage accelerate the creation of new data", said Tom Leh, Avacuna's Managing Partner. "We've consistently emphasized the advantages of Ediscovery compliance planning for our clients, along with the many benefits of implementing a comprehensive metadata strategy. We also understand the complexities and diverse organizational interests posed by metadata and we are planning further work in this area. Our goal with this paper is to promote to our customers and the compliance community vital principles and practices that help ensure pragmatic and defensible Ediscovery governance programs."
The white paper is available for download at Avacuna's website.
