Litigation Readiness Planning
Litigation Readiness Planning involves the strategic development of best practices and operating procedures to facilitate the control of an organisation’s electronically stored data (ESI) and potential evidence. Organisations need entrenched and secure processes to meet preservation, collection, and production responsibilities.
Effective litigation readiness improves response times, reduces disruptions to your business, and reduces the impact that eDisclosure has on the final costs of litigation. Litigation readiness also improves the overall discovery process and lowers the risk of evidence tampering.
An LRP can streamline processes as well as inform on the best practice for collating and providing data to regulatory bodies. Often those under investigation will, in an attempt to show compliance and cooperation, hand over far more of their data than is obligatory. An LRP outlines what must be disclosed and what you are able to legally withhold, as well as govern data to make it easily accessible. During a raid if anything can be done to decrease the time a forensic team needs to spend on time then it will lessen the impact on your business in both the short and long term.
The effective governing of data through an LRP aggressively uncovers the weaknesses attributed to developments in technology and teaches an internal web of ‘first responders’ how to react should a breach take place. This saves valuable time, ensures immediate action is taken to resolve the breach and identifies what data has been compromised in order execute a damage limitation plan.
Commercial disputes, although increasingly a fact of life, can be extremely damaging to a company’s reputation. In many cases settling these disputes through litigation, mediation or arbitration may involve digital evidence.

CYFOR are also able to provide an effective eDisclosure solution should the case progress to litigation.
