Speaker Bio

John H. Evans is a Senior Vice President of the Forensic Services Group with D4 / Special Counsel. John has over 25 years of experience in the information technology industry and brings his extensive expertise in digital forensic investigation to his clients. As Senior Vice President of the D4 Forensic Services Group, he is responsible for consulting with clients about digital forensics and eDiscovery best practices, and he manages a team of digital forensic analysts and ESI collection specialists. John is an experienced digital forensic investigator in his own right with a vast working knowledge of computer hardware, operating systems, file systems, software, cloud and mobile device technologies. Combined with a degree in computer science from Wittenberg University, John has the knowledge and expertise to handle any digital forensics challenge. Before joining D4, John was a Managing Consultant with Project Leadership Associates, and served as an Investigator at the Illinois Office of the Executive Inspector General. In addition to his on-the-job experience, John has also been called on to serve as an expert witness for computer forensic analysis and defensible collection of ESI for numerous litigations in both state and federal courts. He has also led more than 400 investigations involving digital evidence for matters concerning trade secrets, intellectual property, fraud, employment, and computer misuse.

LIE188630 - Next Generation ESI Collection: From Custodian Directly to Review Evidence collection is a particularly time-intensive and risk-laden component of the e-discovery process, and one that certainly impacts the “speed to review.” Often collections are overly broad, which leads to increased processing burdens, costly delays, and higher attorney review costs. An inefficient and disjointed collection process can also present challenges to hosted attorney review, as multiple manual steps and unnecessarily large data volumes impede what should be a streamlined process.

However, next generation ESI collection provides an EDRM-disrupting capability to quickly and effectively access and search data sources throughout the enterprise, compress the processing stage, and efficiently import data into RelativityOne.

Join our panel in a discussion of how next-generation ESI collection, coupled with effective information governance, ties into a very efficient hosted review process and ultimately reduces costs. You'll learn:
  • • How to effectively leverage a clandestine and non-custodian based collection process
  • • How to do pre-ECA analysis
  • • How to streamline ingestion into RelativityOne
