EDRM Launches Five New Projects: Data Sets, Processing Specifications, Data Mapping, State eDiscovery Rules & Pro Bono
Setting the global standards for e-discovery, the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) is pleased to announce five new projects to help improve frameworks, resources and standards for the global community and is seeking new contributors for them.
“We are excited about the new ideas and new projects being initiated in the first quarter of 2020,” said Reed Smith partner David Cohen, who Chairs the EDRM Board of Trustees. “These projects will add to the many ongoing projects within EDRM, all designed to benefit the larger legal community, and we are fortunate to have each of them championed by industry experts.”
The new Data Sets project is being championed by Cash Butler, founder of Clarilegal and is seeking project participants. “Everyone still tests and demonstrates with the very old and familiar data set that is comprised primarily of Enron email and attachment data,” said Cash Butler. “A new modern data set needs to be created that is focused on modern data types as well as email. Slack, Snapchat, Instagram, text messaging, GPS and many other data types that are needed for testing and demonstrating how they process and present in a useful way. In addition, to creating the new data set we will also look to form a framework for community members to easily add, curate and update the data set to stay current.” [learn more]
