Join us for this Knowledge Group Online CLE Mobile Device Webinar. While mobile devices bring efficiency and flexibility to many legal practitioners, they also pose challenges in the preservation and collection of electronically stored information (ESI). The diversity of data types and formats per mobile device, growing numbers and models of mobile devices and associated operating systems (OS), and the increasing adoption of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies in many businesses are just three of the issues that legal practitioners must address in mobile device discovery. In this complex landscape of mobile device discovery, it is important that attorneys and IT and security professionals understand the changing landscape of mobile devices,  their relative significance to a matter, and the obligations, costs, burdens and benefits of accessing those devices in the context of litigation.

In a two-hour Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will discuss the key technical and legal challenges associated with mobile device discovery. They will also offer practical tips on the preservation and collection of mobile device data.

Key topics include:

  • Mobile Device Characteristics
  • Diversity of Data and Devices
  • Implications for Litigation and Investigations
  • Mobile Device Case Law
