IT Handbook: Legal Hold and Collection

This practical guide is for IT professionals who want to learn more about the duties and risks associated with the legal hold and collection process, and work more effectively with their corporate legal department.

Why a handbook on legal hold for IT?

Lawyers and their staff have ultimate responsibility over the legal bold process—but they rely heavily on IT to execute many of the activities associated with a legal hold. This creates a burden on IT, makes the process inefficient and may put legal, IT or the organization at risk if legal obligations aren’t met. This handbook is specifically designed for IT professionals who are involved in day-to-day execution of a legal hold.

You'll Learn:
  • Your company’s obligations surrounding a legal hold
  • The respective roles of IT and legal in the process
  • The mechanics of collection and preservation, including collecting from enterprise systems and Office 365
  • Using technology to manage legal holds

The handbook concludes with tips for better collaboration between legal and IT for a less burdensome process.
