More Info

The goal of this BootCamp is to completely change the way you think about electronically stored information. The course includes exercises which plot the path that evidence follows from the familiar information items called “documents” that lawyers use in court back to the featureless stream of binary electrical impulses common to all information stored electronically.

Course Summary

The goal of this 5-day instructor-led course is to change the way you think about electronically stored information.

Course material and exercises plot the path that evidence follows from the familiar information items called documents”that lawyers use in court back to the featureless stream of binary electrical impulses common to all information stored electronically.

Who should attend?

E-Discovery practitioners, law practitioners and students, IT personnel and students, cyber security consultants, investigators and anyone looking at entering this dynamic field or advancing their career. Everyone in discovery is a requesting party and a producing party. We ask more of the students that most e-discovery professionals can deliver. It is hours of effort before you arrive and a full week of training. No picnic. That is why we compare it to a boot camp. It exhausts and overwhelms many; but those who do the work emerge transformed: competent, confident and possessing new eyes for ESI. Think you can hack it? We can help. Hope to see you here.

Electronic Discovery and Digital Evidence Bootcamp

The “Introduction to Electronic Discovery and Digital Evidence” BootCamp provides comprehensive coverage of the technology used in e-discovery cases.

From discovery identification to collection, processing, review, production, and presentation, this practical course covers everything you need to know about e-discovery, including relevant Australian Legislation.

Throughout the course participants will have the opportunity to work with e-discovery and digital forensic tools as well as popular processing and review platforms. Multiple tools are discussed for each phase, giving you a good selection of potential resources for each task.

Finally, several examples are used during the BootCamp, revealing little talked-about potential pitfalls.

If you are wanting to progress your career in e-discovery this is the course for you!


Course Outcomes

This course will help you answer questions such as:

Electrocially Stored Information (ESI)
This course provides a wealth of knowledge about ESI, including:
• How computers store data
• Differences between common storage media
• How computers encode data
• How computers use binary signatures and file extensions to distinguish the types
• How foreign languages encoded differently from English?
• The difference between system and application metadata?
Anatomy of Email Messages
• What are the seen and unseen elements of an e-mail message?
Finding Deleted data and Forensic Images
• Where does deleted data go, if it is not really gone?
• How deleted data are recovered
• Forenisc Imaging
Search Tools and Review Platforms
• How do search tools and review platforms operate?
• What are load files, how they are used what challenges do they represent?
• What impact do alternate forms of production have upon cost and utility?
• What are the key elements of an effective, cost-effective and defensible legal hold?
Legal Technologies
Some of these questions may seem hyper technical and far removed from the day-to-day of discovery and the practice of law; but, they serve as essential building blocks in a solid foundation for development of practical skills.
