Managing Case Evidence in a Digital World
In an increasingly digital world, it’s no surprise that case evidence is also increasingly digital. In a system designed for physical evidence, how have you made the expansion to digital?
Storing, sharing, retrieving, and using the mounds of digital evidence your agency has accumulated is no small job.
The Top Challenges with the eDiscovery Process
The courts and attorneys’ offices we work with are facing similar challenges with digital evidence, no matter the size or location of their jurisdiction. Here are the top challenges we frequently see with the eDiscovery process:
- Collecting digital evidence
- Securing digital evidence to ensure only authorized parties can access it
- Ensuring digital evidence isn’t changed or modified
- Storing and organizing digital evidence
- Interacting with third-party applications
- Retaining chain of custody on digital evidence
- Retrieving/playing/presenting digital evidence reliably regardless of the format
Additionally, all of the above elements need to happen in a timely fashion to meet case milestones and ensure all stakeholders have what they need.
The many challenges of digital evidence don’t stop there. Every single day, your agency is acquiring more and more digital evidence, and there’s no end in sight. In fact, all current predictions suggest the amount of digital evidence collected will continue to rise.
