The Definitive Definition of Metadata

The Definitive Definition of Metadata

What IS Metadata? Let’s join Curtis Buhrkuhl, an Office1 expert, and take a deeper dive into it’s definition from a technology perspective.



Metadata in litigation is the origins or characteristics of the data or the electronic device.

We are looking at the characteristics of information from 5 different layers:

1. When was the document opened?

2. Who created the document?

3. Where is it being accessed?

4. Who has accessed it?

5. What time was it accessed/edited?


It’s the fine details in litigation that can make all the difference!
