A New vision for 'Hostile eDiscovery'
Netmail is pioneering new technology for what might be known as “hostile eDiscovery.”
Hostile eDiscovery happens when a party who is adversarial to the management of an enterprise conducts a search for records, without the cooperation of management. Examples of adversaries might be:
- Law enforcement like FBI or the Royal Canadian Mounted Police
- Tax collector like the Internal Revenue Service, Revenue Canada, or a state tax authority
- A regulator like the Environmental Protection Agency or the Food and Drug Administration
- A fraud investigator hired by the board of directors of a public company to investigate whether management is stealing from the company
