As part of our ongoing series of Forensic related themes Magnus Becher (Director in Forensic Technology) explores with Dr Silvia Hodges Silverstein (CEO of Buying Legal Council) the issue of eDiscovery and getting the most from technology.
The world of forensic technology and electronic discovery is a peculiar one. Often times, buyers of electronic discovery services focus on the latest gimmick in technology, the lowest per GB rate or service offerings that claim to be for free. We can see the temptation in that, but we also see the dramatic downside.
The reality is that CEOs and general counsels know that free is not possible or at least not sustainable. So, how does KPMG’s Forensic Technology team drive innovation and reduce cost whilst enabling the best risk outcome for our clients? Below are some of our observations and recommendations to save money.
