IG85732 - e-Discovery in Cyber Investigations This discussion highlights the areas in which cyber security and e-discovery dovetail in the increasingly interdependent data landscape. Cyber breaches increasingly lead to litigation or an investigation. Leveraging e-discovery tools from outset better equips companies responding to breaches. When many people think of cyber security and e-discovery in tandem, the concern is around protecting the sensitive data contained within provider and law firm servers and cloud infrastructures. While this is an increasingly pressing concern given recent high profile law firm breaches and the type of data contained in many situations involving e-discovery, experience working with both practices has highlighted how they are inextricably intertwined. In particular, the specific tools supporting unstructured data analytics help identify or provide evidence of insider threats, or simply ensure highly relevant data to the cyber investigation is adequately preserved, collected, and ultimately analyzed.
