Custodian Search

Definition(s)

Custodian search is a common form of constraining search results. To search based on a custodian, the metadata search using the metadata name “Custodian” can be used. Custodian search may rely on assigning custodians to collected data during the Identification Phase so that searching doesn’t miss out on custodians. For example, instant messages with buddy-names may be missed if the search term is specified as last-name/first-name or as email addresses.
