There are too many to list, but here are a few examples:

  1. Employees with access to sensitive data resigned, and you want to figure out if they took data with them to use at a new company.
  2. You are considering filing a lawsuit, and want help quickly gathering data to analyze your claims.
  3. You are a party to a lawsuit (or are an attorney representing a party), and need to collect evidence to comply with discovery obligations and help evaluate your case.
  4. Issues have arisen in litigation regarding the authenticity of electronically stored information, when files were created or accessed, whether evidence was deleted, or the operation of electronic storage devices/accounts.
  5. You need to take large volumes of data and figure out a way efficiently to identify key evidence.
