Extract from Jim Gill's article "What is In-Place Preservation and How Does It Affect Your eDiscovery Workflow"
There has been a lot of discussion around In-Place Preservation (IPP) over the past few years, but many in the legal industry are still unsure of its potential for eDiscovery, data privacy, and compliance.
A good first step is to define what we mean by IPP and how that changes whether you’re talking about data retention policies or legal hold.
For retention, preserving data in-place simply means you retain the data where it’s actually being used, rather than moving it to a separate archiving solution or to a separate location the way we would move paper boxes to a warehouse (which is exactly the struggle Rick Compliance is facing in this week’s eDiscovery Blues™ comic.)
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.
