Reduce the Peril: Best Defense Against Legal Hold Threats
Posted on December 9, 2016
In our new white paper, “Is it Worth the Risk? How to Implement a World Class Defensible Legal Hold Process” we discuss the significance of legal holds in today’s corporate environment, why you need gold-standard legal hold automation software and strategies to fuel your company’s path toward a robust legal hold process.
Legal holds involve the preservation of information when litigation is reasonably anticipated. Recent legal hold cases and their subsequent negative outcomes for the corporations involved have highlighted the need for companies to be highly proactive in dealing with legal holds. Among these negative outcomes were several multi-million dollar fines imposed on corporations; one fine was in excess of $29 million dollars.
In recent history, landmark legal hold cases such as Zubulake v. UBS Warburg have underscored the importance of companies maintaining a tight grip on their legal hold processes. As we continue learning from past mistakes, there are fewer excuses for not implementing a strong legal hold process. Simply put, companies must have a well-documented process for executing legal holds, and exercise the proper care to preserve and collect electronically stored information.
