Guidance Announces EnCase Certified eDiscovery Practitioner Program

Guidance Software Inc. today announced the new EnCase Certified eDiscovery Practitioner (EnCEP) program. The program certifies private and public sector professionals in the use of Guidance Software’s EnCase eDiscovery software, as well as their proficiency in eDiscovery planning, project management and best practices. …EnCase eDiscovery is the leading eDiscovery solution for the search, collection,
preservation, and processing of electronically stored information (ESI). Earning
the EnCEP certification signifies that a practitioner is skilled in the
application of the solution to manage and successfully complete all sizes of
eDiscovery matters in accordance with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

“The EnCase Certified eDiscovery Practitioner program was created by industry
experts to meet the needs of our EnCase eDiscovery users who are handling
electronic evidence in both routine and some of the largest and most complex
litigations of our day,” said Al Hobbs, Vice President, Professional Development
& Training Operations for Guidance Software. “Candidates who complete the EnCEP
program, and earn the designation, will have demonstrated their expertise in the
leading edge EnCase technology and methodology for the collection and processing
of electronically stored information.”

“Successful litigation depends on good legal scholarship as well as the
appropriate technology infrastructure to support e-discovery. We recommend that
legal professionals are screened on their understanding of technology and
enterprise computing, as well as their comprehension of how technology is
deployed,” said John Bace, a research vice president at Gartner, graduate of the
John Marshall Law School in Chicago, and Advisory Board member for the Center
for Information Technology & Privacy Law at the School. “Certification programs
such as these are a step in the right direction toward ensuring that IT
professionals are proficient in eDiscovery.”

Over the past eight years, Guidance Software has certified more than 2,100
computer investigative professionals with the globally recognized EnCase
Certified Examiner (EnCE) designation. The new EnCEP program will similarly
enable eDiscovery practitioners to demonstrate their skills, training and
experience in the proper handling of ESI for legal purposes.
