Core HaystackID Capabilities To Help You Find Your Data
Rapid Response Forensics
Corporate intellectual property and trade secrets are the lifeblood of successful businesses, especially in crowded and competitive marketplaces. While the recent uptick of corporate hacks and agency leaks have prompted organizations to re-evaluate and tighten their information governance systems and policies, vulnerabilities remain and can be exploited by disgruntled current or recently departed employees who have access to sensitive information.
Receiving a subpoena from a governmental agency as a third party is an unfortunate fact of life for many organizations. In typical agency form, they are painfully broad and leave little room for negotiation. For even well-organized businesses, they represent an unexpected and unplanned cost bomb of sorts, as the respondent must gather the requested data and sweep it for privileged material prior to submission.
Innovating on the Fly
HaystackID has been innovating since its inception, having brought aboard creative and brilliant minds since day one. These inventions range from software and digital tools to techniques, workflows, and project management frameworks, and the frequency with which innovation takes place within the walls of HaystackID has only accelerated over time.
Like any good service provider, HaystackID is never happier than when a big challenge enters into the workplace. One such complex project occurred when the team was given an inoperable, severely damaged iPhone that potentially contained critical evidence in a criminal case involving domestic abuse.
As many lawyers and district attorneys know, destruction of evidence is a common issue that too many defendants, and even prosecutors, often partake in.
Data Size Matters
When it comes to eDiscovery, the size of data sets is often the most accurate indicator of the price, turnaround time and delivery methods, which are all crucial factors in the litigation process. If the data set can fit on a blank CD, the job can be handled in a matter of hours, but if it is contained on an external hard drive, it could take more than a day to process, incurring unmanageable costs for the client.
Any litigation services firm can attest to the fact that a project is rarely as simple as it initially appears, and HaystackID has learned this truth time and time again. In one instance, HaystackID was presented with a test that entailed performing a large forensic data collection of an individual’s laptop who was involved in a lawsuit against a major organization concerning ownership of intellectual property.
Managing internal databases has become extremely complex and sophisticated in light of the rapid evolution of data storage maintenance. Strict security protocols often need to be implemented and maintained to ensure the integrity of corporate data and networks, which can complicate data collections when firms are faced with litigation proceedings involving Electronically Stored Information (“ESI”) processing.
