Hansel & Gretel: The Digital Age

Once upon a time….

Docusource Digital E-DiscoveryWe all know the Hansel and Gretel story where the two children use bread crumbs to try to find their way back through the forest only to find that the crumbs were eaten….but how does this apply to the digital age?

What are digital breadcrumbs?

Breadcrumbs or breadcrumbs trail is also referred to a digital trail and is basically the trace or path that a user leaves behind. It can be user locations, documents, or even websites like Facebook.

Whenever someone does anything on a computer such as opening a file, deleting a file, reading an email…All of that is stored on that computer. Many users think that if they delete their browser history or delete a word document, that it is gone forever. In most cases, nothing is deleted, but it may be buried a little deeper in the hard drive or left a trail on the internet of breadcrumbs.

What is E-Discovery?

Electronic discovery or e-discovery refers to any process in which electronic data is searched for with the intent of using it as evidence in a civil or criminal legal case. As the web has expanded and computers have increased in capabilities, the e-discovery process has become extremely complicated. There are more hiding places for digital evidence to be placed and locating them requires a skilled technician that knows where to look and what to look for. The Docusource team is highly specialized in e-discovery management and processes.
