Information technology — Electronic discovery — Part 4: Technical readiness (Adopted ISO/IEC 27050-4:2021, first edition, 2021-04)
Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the SCC Mirror Committee (SMC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC.
For brevity, this Standard will be referred to as CSA ISO/IEC 27050-4 throughout.
The International Standard was reviewed by the CSA TCIT under the jurisdiction of the CSA Strategic Steering Committee on Information and Communications Technology and deemed acceptable for use in Canada. This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
This document provides guidance on the ways an organization can plan and prepare for, and implement, electronic discovery from the perspective of both technology and processes. This document provides guidance on proactive measures that can help enable effective and appropriate electronic discovery and processes.
This document is relevant to both non-technical and technical personnel involved in some or all of the electronic discovery activities.
