  • Three Ways to Leverage Data Visualization in Your Workflows
    Three Ways to Leverage Data Visualization in Your Workflows
    Christina Ling, Greg Marliave Recorded: Feb 19 2020 56 mins
    Data volumes are exploding, with a staggering 90% of the world’s data being generated in the last two years alone. Discoverable data is getting its tentacles into more sources and types than ever before—mobile data, project management applications, collaboration tools, the list goes on and on. But as data volumes grow more complex, it’s difficult to reveal insights into the data and significant relationships between different classes of data. There is also a significant cost question to consider.

    When handling large discovery projects, it’s important to have the right tools to get insights into the structure of a data set. Proprietary data visualization tools such as Everlaw can generate interactive visualizations from any set of documents and provide key insights into document metadata, contents, formats, dates, review activity, and predicted relevance. This enables early exploration of a document corpus by generating interactive, customizable visualizations from any set of documents, and by drilling down into data sets using the file path explorer.

    With data visualization tools, it’s possible to:

    Generate interactive visualizations from any set of documents that provide key insights into document dates, metadata, primary languages, contents, formats, review activity, and predicted relevance
    Dig deeper into metadata, making it easy to drill down into the underlying file structure of documents in a data set
    Explore the relationships between documents at a glance without the need to review individual documents or conduct a predetermined search
    Leverage predictive coding data in comparison with other file attributes, making it easy to identify a broad class of relevant documents that might be missed by contextual and date filters
    Perform quality control on productions and improve review accuracy

    Join us for an interactive webinar exploring 3 use cases of data visualization that can reduce costs and save time in ediscovery.

    Two Lawyers and a Data Scientist Walk into a Bar . . .
    That's the start of the joke our guest Herb Roitblat wants to tell in the next edition of TAR Talk. Herb thinks lawyers are working too hard at e-discovery and making it too complex. TAR can help with this problem, but not unless we better understand the limits of certain basic sampling concepts such as confidence levels and margins of error.
    In this episode we talk about why the statistical choices we make do not necessarily bring better results. If we are lucky, we might also coax Herb into telling us how game theory could be used to improve the discovery process. And, in case you didn’t realize it, Tom and I will be the lawyers for this joke, Herb is the data scientist. You can be the bartenders at our next edition of TAR Talk. Don’t miss it.

  • Manage DSAR Challenges through Workflow Optimisation and Automation
    Manage DSAR Challenges through Workflow Optimisation and Automation
    Christina Ling, Gregory Campbell Recorded: Jan 29 2020 48 mins
    When the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect on 25 May 2018, it eliminated the cost barrier for an individual to submit a Data Subject Access Request (DSAR), potentially increasing the burden on organisations required to provide the results, and all in a tighter timeline. This has created a challenge for many organisations looking to conform with their duties and obligations; how do they respond to a DSAR in an efficient and cost effective manner? With Everlaw, organisations are able to quickly discover unstructured data, reveal the relevant underlying information, and collaboratively act on these requests in a timely manner.

    In this webinar we will discuss:

    The challenges experienced by organisations in respect of DSARs under the GDPR and how the Everlaw platform can help to overcome these
    Opportunities for workflow optimisation and automation during DSAR review, including the identification of personal data and leveraging batch redactions
    The use of Everlaw’s narrative building toolkit to provide the additional information that organisations are required to supply under the GDPR.

    Join this webinar to hear from DataGrail's CEO and Co-founder Daniel Barber and ZoomInfo General Counsel Anthony Stark to learn more about the compliance landscape for 2020 and the trends we predict for the year ahead that will impact privacy and legal professionals.

    As the systems have become more complex and the lines around ownership more blurred, the explosion in data collection - not just the volume but also the variety and velocity of data - has led to some major security and privacy concerns.

    While we’ve made headway with the data privacy regulations that exist today, we shouldn’t be surprised if consumers demand more. As we head into a new decade, 2020 will be the year that data privacy regulation finally takes off and the government begins to put stakes in the ground for a national privacy framework.

    Doug Austin and Tom O'Connor Recorded: Dec 11 2019 65 mins
    2019 was a busy year for eDiscovery, cybersecurity and data privacy. In data privacy, we've seen everything from the first significant fines for GDPR and organizations preparing for CCPA to litigation over biometric fingerprint capture. Cybersecurity challenged a lawyer’s notification duty toward data breaches and we’ve seen the American Bar Association question if lawyers are “failing” at cybersecurity. And in eDiscovery, escalating challenges from mobile device preservation lead to inadvertent disclosures of privileged information and #metoo in the workplace. This CLE-approved* webcast reviews key events and trends in 2019 and predictions for 2020, including:

    + How Much Data is Transmitted Every Minute on the Internet in 2019
    + What is a Lawyer's Notification Duty When a Data Breach Occurs
    + General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Data Privacy Fines
    + Biometric Security and Data Privacy Litigation
    + Cell Phone Passwords and the Fifth Amendment
    + How Organizations Are Complying with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
    + Social Media and Judges Accepting "Friend" Requests from Litigants
    + How #metoo and Investigations Impact eDiscovery within Organizations
    + Whether Emojis Are the Next eDiscovery Challenge
    + Challenge to Obtain Significant Spoliation Sanctions under Rule 37(e)
