Financial Institutes Take Holistic Approach To Ediscovery18th May 2010
The financial meltdown of the year 2009 has resulted in newer laws as well as the possibility of the growing regulations for most of the financial firms. The pending legislation which would boost the regulations of the big banks as well as would hedge the funds are considered to be two of the latest examples of this kind of trend. In the same manner, the legal actions against the firms of the Wall Street like the Lehman Brothers, Goldman Sachs and many of the others have illustrated the growing demands for being able to respond in a way so as to increase in both of the criminal as well as the civil inquiries.
All of these trends are driving a trend for the departments of the corporate legal at the financial institutions which have taken a unified approach on the functions that are mission critical of the internal investigations, eDiscovery, compliance and audit. This issue has now become a boardroom level one.
The internal investigations might include the issues that involve the human resource, unauthorized access of the network, fraud as well as the theft of the intellectual property. eDiscovery can also include both of the collections for the civil and criminal evidences and also the regulatory inquiries.
