Meet eDiscovery Requirements with Chat Artifact Linking in Load Files.

More professionals are using chat messaging apps at work. Chat messaging provides a convenient and efficient way to collaborate remotely, enabling real-time communication that allows busy teams to quickly share updates and feedback without the delay of email or scheduled phone calls. In the third quarter of 2022, nearly 70 percent of global professionals said they use messaging and chat apps daily for work.

Because of this rise in chat messaging at work, these apps often contain valuable conversations and additional insights into the timeline of an event. They’ve become highly relevant to legal matters and a key source of electronically stored information (ESI) in eDiscovery cases.

AXIOM Cyber’s load file exports now represent parent-child (Bates Numbering) relationships between attached files and the chat conversations where they were found. This will help you meet the eDiscovery requirements of your stakeholders.

Preserving the parent-child relationships ensures that the context of the communication is represented accurately within the eDiscovery platform (such as Relativity.)

This improvement builds on previous developments to load file exports, including email relationship linking.

Load files generated by AXIOM Cyber include:

  • A plain text delimited file with a .dat extension in the Concordance / Relativity format containing metadata for the included artefacts.

  • Folders with accompanying natives and text including:

  • MSG file for email.

Improved Mobile Processing Speeds

In this release, Magnet Forensics changed the mobile carving procedure, provided an average 10% reduction in the processing time of mobile images, and decreased the number of false positive hits. In internal testing, when combined with the improvements to video processing performance, there was a 20% overall reduction in processing time for a mobile image extracted from a real-world device with nearly 50 G of data.

Improved Video Processing Performance

As the video quality of phones and cameras has increased, the volume of video evidence has also increased. It is estimated that over 80% of investigations include video evidence. With the release of Magnet AXIOM Cyber 7.9, Magnet Forensics improved the video processing speed and presentation of video thumbnails in AXIOM, which facilitates AI detection. In internal testing, a VERAKEY extraction of an actively used phone with over 5,000 video files was processed 17% faster.

This improvement also includes changes to generating video thumbnails, which improves AI categorizations involving small objects in video frames. This helps identify human faces, hands, tattoos, license plates, and hate symbols. In HR investigations, video evidence can play a crucial role in cases involving employee misconduct, harassment, or violations of company policy by helping to validate witness statements and establish timelines.

Add Custom Fields to a Portable Case

Each organization has its own rules for what information needs to be recorded when sharing cases.

Now, when you export a Portable Case, you can add up to three custom fields to meet your organization’s unique reporting requirements. Custom field details will appear on your report’s login page below the Examiner Name field. For example, you can include additional examiner names, stakeholder names, or case tracking details. For added flexibility, you can choose the custom field’s name to align with your organization’s terminology.
