It would seem that e-discovery maturity hasn’t changed all that much in a year. Exterro and EDRM released their 2020 E-discovery Maturity Analysis in March, and the findings indicate that despite the implementation of new privacy regulations such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), many companies are still tailoring an information governance or e-discovery posture that is proportional to their individual risk of litigation.

Whereas the 2019 survey collected responses from 218 organizations across various industries, the 2020 analysis broadened that scope to 632 respondents from companies with between 200 and more than 10,000 employees. Even with a larger sample size in the mix, most organizations surveyed operate at a level the Maturity Analysis designates as “fair”—meaning that standardized e-discovery processes are in place, but not enforced.
