According to Fulbright’s 9th Annual Litigation Trends Report, 41% of U.S. companies were required to preserve or protect data from an employee’s mobile device to comply with either regulatory or litigation matters. This was up 9% from the prior year.
How are attorneys managing their clients in this respect? According to Joe Dysart, there are 6 tools that can help attorneys and their clients manage and handle social media. The ABA article lists them as:
“• X1 Social Discovery monitors and collects posts from Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, and can also crawl and archive websites, email and YouTube.
• Hanzo Archives products capture and archive Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn and include YouTube, blogs, customer forums, wikis and websites.
• Socialite, says maker Actiance, captures and archives employee use of Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, and promises to satisfy regulatory, legal and corporate compliance requirements associated with those networks.
• SocialWare provides a number of software products that capture and archive posts on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, and promises to meet monitoring and compliance requirements for the finance industry.
• Gremln promises compliant social media communication for companies regulated by the federal government, including financial services and health care.
• FTI Consulting’s technology practice offers staff that law firms can source for everyday (and highly specialized) social media e-discovery needs.”
