What IS Metadata? Let's join Curtis Buhrkuhl, an Office1 expert, and take a deeper dive into it's definition from a technology perspective.
Metadata in litigation is the origins or characteristics of the data or the electronic device.
We are looking at the characteristics of information from 5 different layers:
1. When was the document opened?
2. Who created the document?
3. Where is it being accessed?
4. Who has accessed it?
5. What time was it accessed/edited?
It's the fine details in litigation that can make all the difference!
