• Being able to search across the platforms and devices where data is stored
• Understanding the limitations of standard search tools
• Operating defensible collection, archive and destruction policies

Whether it involves day-to-day management, internal investigation, responding to requests for information from regulatory authorities or capturing data for the purposes of discovery, Millnet can become an extension of your in-house team and work seamlessly with your external counsel to help you take control of your data.
