eDiscovery is a rapidly evolving topic which remains critically important to attorneys and companies. Gone are the days of simple mining emails for information during the discovery process. Data has gone viral and it has crossed borders. Companies are communicating internally and externally via a myriad of social networks/data services and the data is getting picked up automatically by all sorts of data mining robots and sent to all corners of the globe. Firms are migrating significant portions of their IT network and databases in the cloud. What was once a simply process has now become infinitely more complicated. Clearly a new eDiscovery strategy is needed to prevail in this challenging environment.

The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of key experts to help you make sense of the latest critical issues with respect to eDiscovery. The speakers will also discuss in a two-hour Live Webcast how today’s eDiscovery attorneys should treat technology in terms of the following:

Agenda  (click here to view more)
David C. Shonka, Principal Deputy General Counsel,
Federal Trade Commission

1. Social media: do companies need to have policies that govern the use of social media both by the enterprise itself and by individual employees? What are the concerns when there are no policies? Who is authorized to "speak" for the enterprise? Who "owns" the social media communications that relate to the enterprise? May a departing employee take "his" website with him when he leaves the company? What legal liabilities may attach to social media statements made by employees or to complaints made by members of the public?

2. Cloud computing: When is cloud computing a good idea? When is it not such a good idea? What, if any, provisions should an enterprise seek to have included in the SLA with the provider? -- how does the company retrieve metadata or logs; how does it collect records and information held in the cloud? What are the privacy implications for data held in the cloud? What happens if the service provides either goes bankrupt or is acquired by another provider? How does the service provider manage records disposition and transfers of information at the end of the contract period? When does it matter where the data stored?

3. Cross-border: what are the e-discovery implications of having information stored in servers located outside the US? What are the privacy implications for data stored outside the US? How receptive are courts and federal agencies to claims that information cannot be produced because the laws of another jurisdiction forbid its transfer into the US? How should parties deal with such issues?

Michele C.S. Lange, Esq., Director, Thought Leadership,
Kroll Ontrack

By now, most corporations and their law firms intimately understand the complexities and realities of e-discovery, and many organizations are reexamining their processes and tools to gain efficiencies and reduce costs. In fact, studies indicate that more than 80 percent of corporations and law firms are working to insource some aspect of e-discovery activities in an effort to save money. Can your organization better manage costs and increase control over discovery by bringing e-discovery tools in-house or in-firm? Which components of the EDRM are best insourced or outsourced? How can you leverage the cloud? With more options than ever before available in the market, I will address the following topics:

  • • Choosing a DIY tool v. an outsourced solution
  • • Deploying on-premise software v. cloud-based SaaS platforms
  • • Maintaining flexibility when moving from DIY to a service provider should project parameters change
Simon Bayangos, Director of Technical Services,

  • • Cloud Computing / Social Media
    • • “Clearing the Fog”: What does it actually mean to be in “The Cloud”? Isn’t that just a fancy name for using someone else’s datacenter?
    • • My service providers “host” data for web review – Am I already in the cloud?
    • • So the custodians data is in “The Cloud”, “Great, now what do I do.” Practical collection/investigation strategies for web based data sources.
  • • International Discovery – From a technology perspective…
    • • Go get it and bring it back vs. setup shop and do it in-country.

Adam Pollitt, Vice President,
First Advantage Litigation Consulting

    • • Sub-points to be added

    • • Sub-points to be added
  • WHERE exactly is the potentially-relevant “social networking” data?
    • • Sub-points to be added
