What Changes Do We Need To See In eDiscovery? Part II

Monday, October 14, 2019 (08:59:32)
by Harold Burt-Gerrans

Let’s continue from where we left off last time, discussing standardization. If you missed it, Part 1 was all about establishing standards. Now a bit about following standards. This will sound funny to those who know what a rebel I tend to be! Watch out, I’m about to rant…

When there are established standards, they should be followed. I’m mentioning this as a particular issue has caused some grief on a couple of recent occasions and I’ve discovered that a few industry-leading processing software applications have adopted this particular deviation from the standard. For reference supporting my arguments, I’m using the Library of Congress.

By: Joel Bollö, CEO of MSAB

The mobile forensic market is constantly changing, and changing rapidly. The latest example of that occurred very recently with the publication of a new exploit for the iPhone, the “checkm8” bootrom exploit.

The Mueller Report – An Amazing Lens Into A Modern Federal Investigation

Wednesday, October 09, 2019 (12:35:27)
by Stephen Stewart, CTO, Nuix

Preface: This NOT about politics. This is all about the data discussed in Volume 1 of The Mueller Report.

I will admit, I am a total geek. When the government released the Mueller Report, I downloaded the PDF and, within a few minutes, ran it through Nuix.

For anyone who works with unstructured data for a living, the document would fall into the category of “Gross Data.” The PDF was a container for 447 JPGs with zero searchable text. Nuix made short work of this, and I was able to quickly OCR the images. Thanks to the auto-detect for rotation I was able to very quickly get good clean text.
