Organizations are increasingly under siege from a variety of electronic-based threats. They range from malicious insiders and cyber criminals to lax internal protocols and unsecured corporate networks. While these factors have posed eDiscovery challenges for years, they are particularly troubling at this time. With employees increasingly using consumer-grade cloud applications to commit corporate espionage, with cyberattacks on the rise, and as the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to proliferate, clients and counsel must take proactive steps to prepare for these threats. This includes developing actionable procedures to address problems arising from electronic threats and vulnerabilities that are beyond the traditional realm of eDiscovery.
