Surety to Analyze the FRCP’s E-Discovery Amendments in Upcoming Webinar
Surety announced today that it will host an upcoming webinar entitled, “All Discovery is Now E-Discovery: Policies, Procedures & Tools to Preserve the Integrity of Your Electronic Documents.” On April 16, 2007, litigation readiness, IP protection, e-content management and data integrity solution experts will analyze the e-discovery amendments made to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and explain how they will impact electronic record-keeping processes.
