Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) FRCP is the set of rules that govern and determine how and what is required during a civil litigation. It covers many aspects of litigation in great detail including pleadings, motions, disclosures etc. More importantly, the amendments made in 2006 cover the topic of ‘ediscovery’ specifically. archiving is intended to solve the ediscovery requirements for organizations so that they can be in compliance with this law. Do I need to archive my ? Unless you are your own employee and your own customer, you’ll probably need to archive your s properly. If you do any correspondence through , all those discussions and agreements made in the will be deemed discoverable by the courts. That means that the opposing litigants can ask for these relevant s, and you will have to produce it or you may be fined. Some of the fines can be pretty hefty, as you’ll see on the next page where we explain some of the prior cases. Do I need to keep every I get? No you do not. You can delete your s routinely as set by your retention policy. But if you find out that you might be involved in litigation, then you have to suspend your deletion and make sure you keep everything until the trial is over. This is commonly referred to as placing a “litigation hold.” What is a retention policy? A retention policy is an deletion policy that allows you to delete s that have been sitting in storage past a certain time. Storing any kind of electronic data can be expensive, depending on the volume. While the storage is only 20% of the total cost, the other 80% of expenditure goes to the IT support costs. So, deleting old s and.pst files is a common practice to keep expenditure at a minimum, so that IT doesn’t have to spend an outrageous amount of time managing the data. Your policy can range from anywhere between one day to indefinitely. The typical retention policy is between 3 to 7 years, depending on what your organization is comfortable with. Typical retention policies for education is 3 years, while corporations at 5 years. ** Courts look at a litigant’s retention policy to determine if data is being shared in good faith. An organization with a reasonable retention schedule and enforces litigation holds is looked upon as an entity with ‘good faith,’ and is looked upon favorably. Maintaining good faith is extremely important because of previous devious acts by Enron. **If you’re having trouble setting up or deciding on an appropriate retention policy, contact us and we’ll be glad to discuss and advise you on an appropriate time schedule. Why archive?

Coverage Cases [June 2007] Following Sept 11, numerous claims were made against the Port Authority as owners of the twin towers and its insurance company, Zurich American Insurance Company. Zurich was sanctioned for deleting electronic copies of important documents and only holding paper copies; which they took 3 years to produce. They should have kept electronic copies of these documents. $1.25 MM Mosaid vs. Samsung [July 2004] Parties relied on communication before and during the term of their contract. The defendant deleted most of the s and claimed the plaintiff did not define the as documents. Court ruled that the s should have been kept. They SHOULD have known this.$567k Harold Einstein vs. Corcoran Group [November 2009] In this landmark NY case, a state supreme court sanctioned Corcoran Group for “willfully misleading” a Brooklyn couple into buying a “lemon” house and then failing to produce potentially damaging evidence in court. Failing to suspend document deletion and producing ESI, the judge informed Corcoran and its attorneys that keeping electronic documents was common sense since this is not a “typewriter” era anymore.Sanctions for Defendant & Lawyers City of Boston [July 2009] Mayor Thomas Menino was accused of routinely deleting s that state employees were required to keep for two years. The Mayor’s aid deleted s daily as a habit to staying organized; assuming the server did an automatic backup. The city had a system that archived s in the inbox, but only if they were there for at least 90 days. The Mayors contenders are accusing and investigating foul-play and questioning his mayoral responsibility and actions. May not serve another term Jane Doe vs. Norwalk Community College [2004] A student alleged a teacher at NCC made sexual advances toward her. The teacher left when the student sued NCC and hired an forensics expert to examine the teacher’s laptop. After the teacher left, the school cleaned the hard drive for the replacement teacher, following policy. The school did not archive any s either, causing the judge to find them “grossly negligent, if not reckless.” Settled for $765 k AMD vs Intel [2005] AMD filed an anti-trust lawsuit against Intel for its allegedly monopolistic business practices. Intel had problems managing s of its 99,000 employees. Without an archiver, 1,000 relevant s weren’t recoverable and the jury was instructed to look unfavorably at them. AMD subpoenaed 36 of Intel’s biggest customers and requested them to produce their relevant s as well. Not only did this directly affect Intel, but their customers also. The case was settled in November Settled for $1.25B

MYTHS: Non-alternatives to archiving There are many misconceptions in opinions when it comes to archiving. Because archiving is a way of backing up , there are opinions out there that are misleading, and can end up being very costly in the future. Outlook archives my s automatically Yes it does, but it has one large drawback. Outlook archives s for each user by pulling the s off of the exchange server and storing it in the individual user’s hard drive. Now the server admin loses all access to the centrally stored data, and has to look through each user’s personal computer. If your organization has more than 10 users, this can be very time consuming. Not to forget that its non-compliant, because s can be inadvertently edited by the user once they have been removed off of the server. If these.pst are located on multiple user’s computers, the data can not be searched from a single location, and is in violation of a compliant retention policy. I’ll backup these.pst files in a hard drive Sure you can save it, but it isn’t compliant. Saving the files on a hard drive only stores the files, but does not make it compliant as it is not tamper-proof. Anyone with access to it can edit the content. It is difficult to verify that the content hasn’t been tampered with, and this may not reflect very well in litigation. Another challenge with backing up these files in a hard drive is that there is no search functionality. It will become expensive and time consuming to have to look through all the user s and attachments to find the relevant evidence for the courts. These rules don’t apply to me If your company has employees using for communication, you should be archiving. You don’t plan to be in litigation, but you chances are you might get in one. In times like that, all the pertinent s in regard to your case will be called in question. Without an archiving solution, hiring a consultant to index and find the relevant s is expensive.* Why do you file paper documents? Most of us keep them because they’re important and might be useful in the future for various reasons. Archiving s is the same action, but for communications. In the ‘In re September 11 Liab. Ins case’ the plaintiffs were fined for keeping paper documents and not keeping electronic copies of documents. I keep hard copies Keeping hard copies is always a good idea. It provides a secondary or tertiary backup source for all your important documents. You’ll have these files at your disposal if your network crashes or is temporarily disabled. But it is best practice to keep the digital content as well. If you go to court, your opponent may request the data in whatever format they prefer, and you’ll have to produce them in that way. If they require it in digital format (which the most often do, because of the availability of the meta data), then you will have to reproduce that data from your paper backups. However, if you’ve kept the s archived, you can just as easily run a report that will generate the relevant content they require. In the event of a fire, paper documents may get destroyed. These paper documents could get burnt, or turned into pulp when the water from the sprinklers smudge the ink and data on it. If you have electronic copies of these documents archived in , they can be easily reprinted or restored.

Advanced Search Search looks for keywords in and attachments Server Compatibility Compatible with exchange, Groupwise, Lotus, iMail, smtp, pop3 & Sendmail Multiple retention policies Set a global policy for everyone and special retention policies for select individuals Federated Search Run a single search across multiple appliances. 8 features to look for in an archiving solution Advanced Search Its important to make sure an archiver has the necessary functions that will help you find the information you require. With DataCove, s can be found by searching through content, attachments, user or date. You can find s and any type of attached documents that were sent by searching through each person, date, project name or some other custom content. Your system administrator will be able to find these s throughout the entire organization without having to go through the hassle of interviewing and contacting each person involved. Cost Effective Lowest cost solution that handles up to unlimited number of users DataCove Expandable – Add Appliances Store and backup older s in a SANS/NAS volume End-user Access Access archived through the local mail client via LDAP access Simultaneous Archiving of Multiple Servers Archives s from multiple servers simultaneously End-user Access DataCove archives all inbound and outbound s within the organization’s network. That means end-users will get to treat their inboxes as they always have. You will be able to delete and move s within their own outlook clients. You can keep inboxes clean, uncluttered and lower the size of the.pst files. However, once in awhile, you may need to access old s that were either lost or deleted. This is easily done, by accessing the DataCove web interface and using the comprehensive search function to find the relevant s. You can generate a report and also export a zip file containing all these relevant s. An administrator can also give an end-user a higher access level, allowing them to access more than just their s. For instance, allowing the CEO or the COO access to all user s in order to run a search on all correspondence related to a certain project.

6 DataCove 8 features to look for in an archiving solution Copyright 2013© by Tangent Inc. All rights reserved. Federated Search Allow multiple appliances to be added to meet the growing needs of an organization. The federated search ability allows administrators to perform searches of s across multiple systems from a single interface. Additional appliances can be seamlessly added to the network infrastructure for increased storage. This eliminates the guesswork of projecting the storage needs of archiving to reduce upfront cost. Cost Effective In this down economy, you can’t afford to get into litigious situations or spend too much money on new acquisitions. So, picking a cost effective product will not only ensure compliance but also help you keep your budget intact. DataCove is the most cost effective expandable archiving solution on the market. There are many other manufacturers that boast of enterprise level backup and restoration services costing over a hundred thousand dollars. The DataCove archiving solution equipped with all the important features starts at $2, features to look for in an archiving solution ~continued Server Compatibility A good archiver is compatible with multiple mail servers. An archiver is a server that you keep running without much need for active human interaction. Its also a long-term investment item. So, finding an archiving appliance that will handle a lot of servers is important so that it will accommodate any upgrades or changes you make to your mail servers. If you decide to change your mail server in the future, you only have to make minor settings alterations to the archiving appliance to make sure it’s compatible with your new server. Multiple Retention Policies Simultaneously being able to have multiple retention policies serve numerous benefits, including retention by segmenting your users to saving storage space. Since some groups of people in your organization have more important business related s, you can set either a longer or shorter retention periods for them. For instance and end-user’s s which is not that important can be stored for 1 year. Middle Management’s s can be stored for 3 years and the President’s can be stored for 7 years. On the DataCove, all of these retention periods is user customizable. Simultaneous Archiving of Multiple Servers If you are a medium to large sized organization, you might be operating multiple servers in different locations. Seamless migration of data from multiple sources to the main server becomes more of a need than convenience. By utilizing a good archiver, you can archive s from both servers simultaneously, and users will be able to access the collective knowledge without having to dig into both servers separately. DataCove archives multiple servers simultaneously into one back-end appliance without needing extra hardware.
