File Integrity

Before you can fully appreciate a file's anatomy, you must ensure that the file is protected. This means you must ensure the integrity of every file under your care.
File integrity ensures that your data remains in an unblemished state. File integrity must be the highest priority throughout the discovery process. If you minimize or ignore the role of file integrity, the anatomy of your file could change. Although change is not an automatic discriminator, it certainly calls into question a great number of things. If changes go undocumented and are the result of careless or reckless behavior, the anatomy of your files can change. Some changes may not be disastrous, whereas others may be unrecoverable.
For instance, when two companies are involved in a lawsuit they must exchange information. When a company wants to receive documents, it sends a Request for Production of Documents (RPD). This process allows the company to obtain during documents during discovery. As it relates to e-discovery, here are some of the initial questions in an RPD:
▪ What documents are we going to collect and search?
▪ Are these documents the right ones?
