It's no secret that mobile devices are everywhere. From the fourth grade student playing games on his phone during class, to the 98-year-old great grandmother doing face time with her family. With all this mobility comes risk, a risk that is heightened when the device is your work phone. Caitlin Murphy dives into Mobile Device e-Discovery -- and dares to ask the question: Can your iPhone keep a secret?
Are e-Discovery software and service providers making tools that allow civil law practitioners to collect data from smartphones, i-devices and cell phones quickly and easily? What do they cost? And how do users review the data once it is collected? These tools do exist in the criminal law and especially law enforcement worlds, but do they apply to the corporate legal department or law firm?"
