Kroll Ontrack underwrites second e-discovery certification course

Course in high demand, as litigation and law practice support professionals seek training and education on popular topic

MINNEAPOLIS – March 3, 2004 – Kroll Ontrack Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Kroll Inc. (NASDAQ: KROL), that provides electronic evidence and data recovery services and software, is underwriting a second offering of an e-discovery certification course on March 25th – 26th, 2004 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The course, titled “Electronic Discovery: The Changing Face of Litigation,” is designed exclusively for litigation and practice support professionals, and provides training and education about the technical details of managing e-discovery processes for litigation and regulatory compliance matters. Upon completion, all participants will receive the “Certified E-Discovery Specialist” designation which recognizes them as litigation support professionals who meet the industry’s high standards for managing the e-discovery process and assisting attorneys in making digital evidence decisions.

“It is very important that litigation and practice support managers have a strong understanding of what is important when working on an e-discovery matter to help them provide top notch service to the clients of their firms,” stated Kristin Nimsger, Esq., Director, Electronic Evidence Product Line for Kroll Ontrack. “The great reviews for the last course in December of 2003, and the high demand for a repeat event, showed that the need for such an ongoing offering existed.”

The inaugural course held December 8th - 9th, 2003 was full to registration capacity only one week after registration opened and the wait list exceeded 100 pending registrations by the time the course began. The second course will be offered on March 25th - 26th in Minneapolis, MN, at Kroll Ontrack’s Eden Prairie training facility and will follow the same curriculum, although some faculty members have been changed. The sessions will include information specifically related to handling e-discovery cases. Some of the topics include:

  • The Differences between Electronic Discovery and Computer Forensics
  • Managing an Electronic Discovery Project and Key Decisions
  • Electronic Document Collection and Processing
  • E-Discovery Review and Production Options
