Data volumes will keep growing in the years ahead, as will the number of regulations on data security and privacy. For businesses and other organizations that want to stay competitive and compliant, that means an ever-increasing need for competent and up-to-date electronic discovery capabilities.
In the 10 years since it was first established, the EnCase Certified eDiscovery Practitioner (EnCEP) certification has become an industry-standard way of demonstrating proficiency in the use of OpenText™ EnCase™ eDiscovery, OpenText’s software for searching, collecting, preserving and processing electronically stored information (ESI). And if you use EnCase eDiscovery and are looking to boost your professional credentials, you’ll want to attend Enfuse 2019 from November 11-14 at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas.
As our digital investigation and security conference, Enfuse offers lots of learning and networking opportunities related to electronic discovery, forensic investigation, information security and artificial intelligence. You’ll be able to choose from more than 100 sessions and hear from experts about the latest techniques, technologies and best practices in the industry. You’ll also be able to earn credits, meet EnCEP re-certification requirements if you’re already certified, and take your EnCEP certification at no additional cost.
Why EnCEP certification?
For anyone who works in electronic discovery – public or private sector – EnCEP certification is proof you’ve met stringent training requirements and are highly skilled in using EnCase eDiscovery. It shows you know how to manage and complete a wide range of electronic discovery tasks in a way that stands up to legal scrutiny and meets the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
Having such capabilities is increasingly important in today’s global business environment, which is become ever-more digitalized, connected and litigious. That means electronic discovery burdens will continue to rise, even as in-house legal teams and other professionals are expected to work more efficiently and cost-effectively.
In addition, new regulations such as Europe’s GDPR and the pending arrival of the California Consumer Protection Act are fueling greater requirements for data management and electronic discovery. Meanwhile, continuing advances in technology – new devices, apps, services and more – bring new sources, volumes and types of data that must be collected, used, stored and analyzed in fast, secure and legally compliant ways.
OpenText’s EnCase eDiscovery software can help meet all these needs, enabling professionals to gain visibility into an organization’s information across devices, networks and endpoints. And we continue to add ever-more capabilities to keep up with changing technologies, demands and legal requirements: custom automation, faster analytics, proactive insights, and more. All of this ensures that EnCase software users can collect and process all the data they need, wherever it’s located, in ways that are unobtrusive, forensically sound and legally defensible.
EnCEP-certified professionals understand how to use this software to its fullest capabilities, and they can help their organizations avoid costly litigation and save millions of dollars in needless expenses.
