You're Going to be Sued - How IT Can Address Immediate Requirements & Prepare for the Future (Litigation Readiness)

Introduction
It is a fact of today's business environment that most companies are going to get sued. Increasingly, IT is the focus of those lawsuits. The courts have recognized that electronic data is a form of business record, which requires special handling. As a result of this recognition, the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure have been amended to include “electronically stored information." or, ESI. IT must realize that company processes, procedures, policies, and most data will now be open to court inspection and review. In addition, under the new FRCP amendments, IT will be required to produce information in a very timely manner, less than 120 days after the filing of a lawsuit. So how does IT respond to these requirements? What strategies need to be implemented in order to address the additional legal component to IT operations? This paper will examine these questions and present some strategies for both immediate requirements when under litigation and how to prepare for the future.
