Electronic discovery, or e-discovery, is a type of cyber forensics (also referred to as computer or digital forensics) and describes the process by where law enforcement can obtain, secure, search and process any electronic data for use as evidence in a legal proceeding or investigation. Electronic discovery may be limited to a single computer or a network-wide search.
