The approach of many corporations to e-discovery is driven by fear of spoliation and sanctions. This leads to a “collect everything and sort it out later” mind set that is not sustainable, says Brad Harris from Zapproved. Moreover, what may seem like the safe approach is actually more risky. It’s too costly, increasingly difficult to actually carry out, and it can lull corporations into a false sense of security. Defensible weeding of data requires investment in information governance, and in particular bring-your-own device (BYOD) policies.
