PASADENA, Calif. -- April 15, 2013

Guidance Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: GUID), the World Leader in Digital
Investigations™, today announced two new professional services designed to
help companies fundamentally improve the way they manage electronic discovery
to gain efficiencies, achieve compliance, and reduce costs: EnCase® eDiscovery
Started Right and EnCase® eDiscovery Done Right.

Due to the complexity and volume of data involved in litigation, corporate
investigations, and regulatory audits, organizations are increasingly bringing
e-discovery in-house to reduce the associated cost while mitigating the risk.
The new services help companies bring e-discovery in-house, including review
and production, with EnCase® eDiscovery, the market-leading solution for
e-discovery professionals. Information technology and legal teams will also
gain deeper insights into e-discovery best practices and receive expert
assistance to apply to their business processes.

“An in-house e-discovery approach that dramatically reduces risks and costs
involves more than just technology. It involves people and practices, too,”
said Amanda Berger, vice president of Professional Services for Guidance
Software. “Our customers have asked us for best practices-focused services
that can both speed implementation and ensure their e-discovery processes will
scale to meet their requirements today and in the future.”

The first new service from Guidance Software, EnCase eDiscovery Started Right,
helps new EnCase eDiscovery customers accelerate bringing e-discovery
in-house, while instituting best practices from the beginning. The Guidance
Software consultants help with initiating the first case using EnCase
eDiscovery. Tailored to the organization’s approach to e-discovery, this may
include guidance through legal hold, early case assessment, collection,
preservation, processing, review, and production.

EnCase eDiscovery Done Right assists current EnCase eDiscovery customers with
adopting additional e-discovery functions in house. After an initial
assessment of the customer’s existing e-discovery environment, Guidance
Software consultants instill best practices into the entire e-discovery
workflow, while optimizing governance, risk-management, and compliance
capabilities. Guidance Software service professionals can also help define and
create a litigation-response team.
