The headlines capture your attention: "$4 Billion Settlement Reached for FOREX Manipulation!" In November, 2014, six of the largest international financial institutions agreed to more than $4 billion in settlements with both US and UK regulators regarding improper trading activities in the foreign exchange market. According to the Wall Street Journal, the regulators cited the banks for "inadequately supervising their traders and other employees and lacking sufficient controls to prevent them from engaging in allegedly improper behavior" . . . .

E-discovery advice is prevalent throughout legal, information management and technology publications, including varying opinions about the methods in which to diligently preserve and collect electronically stored information (ESI). Common themes focus on finding relevant ESI by understanding how your organization uses its information, locations where data resides, as well as knowing the scope of the collection for specific litigations. This guidance, coupled with the court's requirements, drives the desired outcome of using reasonable and repeatable processes, cost-effective methods and legally defensible practices . . . .

Before the "e" was in e-discovery, legal teams manually separated and clustered relevant documents together to understand the relevant facts.

A lot has changed since then. We've moved to online software that provides functionality to do the e-discovery process faster, but not necessarily better . . . .

Predictive coding shows us where e-discovery technology wishes it could go: total automation. Encode a complete legal mind into a software program, load up the discovery portfolio, count to 10, and out pop coded, annotated, redacted production files.

It's a seductive concept, but such technology is a very long way off, and its broad acceptance by courts—which have yet to really say yea or nay even on predictive coding—is farther away still . . . .

There's no way around it: Legal e-discovery is a 21st century, first-world problem. I'm pretty sure there's no one in a village in sub-Saharan Africa wondering if they are adequately protected from civil litigation. It's only a reality in today's multi-faceted, multinational and multi-problematic business world.

Which is still a pretty big deal . . . .

For nearly two decades, large enterprises have complained about how much information they have to store, manage and protect. As regulations regarding that information steadily grow in number and complexity, they complain louder. The stakes—penalties and reputational damage for mishandled information—get higher. But a solution always seems just out of reach.

Fifteen years ago, there were no CIOs. We had VPs of MIS (management information services). If you'd asked one of them whether the problems of data growth, complexity and security—what we now call information governance—would be solved by 2014, the answer likely would have been "yes." A good bet, but wrong. . . .

The e-discovery process is complex and offers multiple opportunities for missteps. Organizational and functional silos, a lack of visibility, miscommunication, duplication of efforts, overlooked details and missed data or hardware disposition, as well as the inherent unpredictability of the legal process, can contribute to problems. Without a mature e-discovery process, often the best an organization can hope to achieve is "organized chaos." Posted June 03, 2014
