If litigation is anticipated or pending, we can capture and preserve the relevant data. We consult with your staff and legal team to understand what and where the data is, then preserve that data for possible future recall. Data can be preserved from virtually any device, including company servers, workstations, smartphones and USB devices
If data is lost, deleted or intentionally hidden, it can often be found. We work with you to determine what we are looking for then utilize the best methods and tools to search for and find the data.
We take the data that was acquired in the Data Preservation Process and prepare it in a way that is searchable by your staff or legal team. Large amounts of data (documents, emails, spreadsheets, etc.) can then be efficiently searched and sorted for use in possible court proceedings.
