Electronic discovery practitioner program

Guidance Software : 15 September, 2009  (Company News)
Professional users of EnCase eDiscovery software can now take part in a certification program launched by Guidance Software
Guidance Software has announced the new EnCase Certified eDiscovery Practitioner (EnCEP) program. The program certifies private and public sector professionals in the use of Guidance Software's EnCase eDiscovery software, as well as their proficiency in eDiscovery planning, project management and best practices.

EnCase eDiscovery is the leading eDiscovery solution for the search, collection, preservation, and processing of electronically stored information (ESI). Earning the EnCEP certification signifies that a practitioner is skilled in the application of the solution to manage and successfully complete all sizes of eDiscovery matters in accordance with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

'The EnCase Certified eDiscovery Practitioner program was created by industry experts to meet the needs of our EnCase eDiscovery users who are handling electronic evidence in both routine and some of the largest and most complex litigations of our day,' said Al Hobbs, Vice President, Professional Development & Training Operations for Guidance Software. "Candidates who complete the EnCEP program, and earn the designation, will have demonstrated their expertise in the leading edge EnCase technology and methodology for the collection and processing of electronically stored information.'

"Successful litigation depends on good legal scholarship as well as the appropriate technology infrastructure to support e-discovery. We recommend that legal professionals are screened on their understanding of technology and enterprise computing, as well as their comprehension of how technology is deployed," said John Bace, a research vice president at Gartner, graduate of the John Marshall Law School in Chicago, and Advisory Board member for the Center for Information Technology & Privacy Law at the School. "Certification programs such as these are a step in the right direction toward ensuring that IT professionals are proficient in eDiscovery."

Over the past eight years, Guidance Software has certified more than 2,100 computer investigative professionals with the globally recognized EnCase Certified Examiner (EnCE) designation. The new EnCEP program will similarly enable eDiscovery practitioners to demonstrate their skills, training and experience in the proper handling of ESI for legal purposes.
