Join the ACEDS Houston Chapter for a discussion on ESI culling and processing methodologies. A primary issue in most E-Discovery matters is how to effectively reduce data volume in a defensible manner. As data goes through the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM), several steps are available to help limit the amount of data that will be eligible for review and production. This webinar will walk through the EDRM and discuss the various ESI culling options from processing, to analysis, and to document review. Several culling processes will be discussed including deduplication, De-NISTing, the application of search terms, as well as several analytics tools, such as email threading, textual near duplicate identification, and Technology Assisted Review
