In the Trustworthy Computing Cloud Fundamentals video series, Tim Rains, Director, TC, discuss the importance of e-discovery with Kevin Allison, gm of Office 365. Kevin also provides some insight into how Microsoft manages e-discovery requests.
“Electronic discovery, or e-discovery, is a hot topic among security professionals whose organizations are using cloud services or are evaluating using cloud services in the future,” Rains explains.
“When there is a need to perform forensic investigations to recover and collect evidence contained in the cloud for use in potential legal proceedings, cloud customers need to know that their cloud service providers can meet their needs.”
“Cloud providers’ e-discovery processes must be capable of meeting customer needs in a way that isn’t disruptive to the users of cloud services,” Rains continues.
