Collect — Collections & Forensics
Each organization has its own policies, platforms, and retention schedules. Each custodian handles data differently. Each case has its own challenges.
DLS Discovery has worked hands-on with hundreds of law firms and their clients to facilitate an understanding of data life cycles as they enter litigation. Working with individual plaintiffs and defendants, corporations and board members, government offices and oversea entities – DLS strives to provide a defensible and secure collection procedure for preserving electronically stored information (“ESI”) while minimizing the exposure and risk of unrelated records.

Popular business, email platforms such as Office 365/Exchange and Google G-Suite
Cloud-hosted email for individuals including GoDaddy, Yahoo, AOL, and Gmail
Compliance tools such as Commvault, Google Value, O365 eDiscovery & Compliance
Shared cloud-storage such as Drop Box, Box, Google Drive, ShareFile, and SharePoint

Mobile systems like Android and iPhone (including iCloud)
Cull — ECA & Processing
In the past decade data storage has continued to become denser and faster, allowing organizations to acquire incredible data footprints. Even though the costs of storage continue to decrease, the cost of managing all this data has an increased expense. As an example, the average cost per GB on hard drives in 2009 was about $.11/GB. Eight years later in 2017, costs decreases closer to $0.02. While the decreasing cost curve is flattening, this translates to only $20.48 per terabyte. Although this amount sounds small, this amount of data usually contains somewhere north of 5,120,000 emails. There are other considerations to cost such as redundancy, performance, etc. but any way you slice it, by storage being now cheap it can increase the size of datasets collected.
Beyond measures taken at the time of collection to target information and restrict unnecessary volume, DLS utilizes tools which cull data before it goes online in an effort to decrease the amount of data to be reviewed. These tools allow us to run granular, adjustable criteria to eliminate the review of:
Clients’ unrelated customer data
Embedded and system files
Our approach retains the collection repository as an available resource we can return to if needed while eliminating the exposure and costs associated with hosting and reviewing the full collection of data. These tools greatly reduce time, effort & expense.
