Evidence and discovery in today's employment litigation and investigations now goes well beyond "he said, she said." Often there is critical information on a computer or cell phone that sheds light on what really happened. Don Vilfer, President of Califorensics, will review what information may be recoverable, how to get to it and how to make use of it. He will discuss the types of data on smart phones, techniques for recovering and preserving data, and the challenge and duty to preserve the information. Don will also discuss how to handle e-mail, attachments, and other data stored on a computer, network, backup, or other storage device and how to access this information in the e-Discovery process.
