Mastering Custodian Interviews & ESI Data Mapping

Using data maps in custodian interviews is an instrumental step to help locate evidence early in the case and establish leverage for building your best argument. This building block in the eDiscovery workflow has seen massive changes due to the pandemic and the shifting electronically stored information (ESI) landscape. Identifying sources of evidence has become a significant challenge as new messaging platforms, devices, and evolving social media platforms increase the complexity for all types of matters.
