Discovery should be more than just searching, processing, hosting and producing data for a defensible production in order to achieve procedural compliance and risk mitigation. It should include using that data for actionable corporate insight. With data analytics now being used as a matter of course in most litigation, using that technology to deliver actionable corporate intelligence on the target data is a way to achieve more value from every discovery dollar spent. Examples include compliance auditing and legal risk assessment.
For example, NightOwl offers a unique advisory program called nProtect which is designed to analyze the hosted data and generate a confidential report that provides risk profiling – PII violations, IP leakage, etc. nProtect allows corporate legal to leverage valuable insight gained by the review, rather than allowing this actionable corporate intelligence to be lost when the review is over.
