You Can't Manage What You Don't Measure™

There are numerous benefits to conducting ECA in-house:

  • Strategic advantages
  • Cost and time savings obviating the need to hire a vendor until one is needed
  • Ability to settle potential lawsuits early
  • Privacy

HR professionals have increasingly become an indispensable party to the Information Governance Committee™.  More than ever, they are required to liaise with the legal department and IT to conduct internal investigations. The intersection of employment law, privacy issues, and litigation has created the perfect storm. These challenges necessitate that an organization reconcile the law, technology, and a sound workflow that can enable the efficient retrieval of data to make strategic decisions before litigation commences. Part of this process involves a term coined in the eDiscovery industry: Early Case Assessment (ECA). ECA generally means assessing cost and liability, in a 30-60 day window, through the ability to analyze the substance, types, and locations of data.

Fortis Quay, Inc. can partner with an organization to address these challenges by

  • Assessing the ability of HR to conduct an internal investigation in-house
  • Developing policy
  • Evaluating technology and making recommendations for implementation of ECA software
  • Negotiating with partners for the best outcome for clients purchasing software
  • Prescribing a workflow through custom eLearning modules or proprietary Quay Method™ modules to ensure long term ompliance specific to an organization and their software
  • Measuring employee understanding and compliance through reports generated for upper management
  • Consulting on the best course(s) of action to mitigate risk and allow for strategic decision making in-house to either obviate litigation or settle early
