AD eDiscovery® Certification

The AD eDiscovery Certification (ADED) is specifically focused to the IT professional responsible for administering AD eDiscovery®. Upon completion, that individual will have obtained proficiency in administering AD eDiscovery. The certification focuses on defensible data collection practices in an e-discovery investigation, and how the use of AD eDiscovery can ensure electronic evidence can be self-authenticated to comply with Federal Rules of Evidence 902 (13) and 902 (14).
