Information Security professionals are increasingly asked to play critical roles in responding to legal requests for electronic records and information. Learn five key strategies for being prepared to perform your role--and survive the maelstroms of the e-discovery storms.
Successful companies abide by a fundamental business principle: “If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it.” Lawyers and electronic discovery professionals, however, have been slow to adopt this bedrock tenet, relying instead on more reactive and subjective approaches. As regulatory requirements, data volumes and types, and budget pressures mount, proactively managing litigation portfolios can provide substantial differentiated value. In this webinar, our experts will discuss how pre-defined, comprehensive, and legally defensible managed services programs foster faster identification of responsive and critical information, more efficient and predictable spending, and better litigation outcomes.

In 2015, charitable donations to colleges and universities reached an all-time high of $40.3 billion. As university endowments seek greater returns in a diverse international marketplace, the challenges from investing in funds in high-risk jurisdictions increase exponentially.
Join Kroll Associate Managing Director John Arvanitis and guest Michael A. Lukasek, CPA, Managing Director of the University of Pennsylvania’s Office of Investments, to discuss how to build a world-class compliance program for endowments. Participants in this webinar will gain insights into topics including:
Best practices for vetting and engaging with investments and fund managers in high-risk jurisdictions.
How to establish protocols in preparation for the compliance requirements of the changing regulatory environment.
Three reasons why you join us on July 15
1. Regulatory regimes around the world are evolving and expanding. Higher education endowments must ensure compliance with not only all federal and state laws, but increasingly, foreign regulations as well.
2. Recently, a number of legislative proposals have been advanced that seek to regulate endowment activity and revoke tax-exempt status, leading to heightened scrutiny of and public visibility into endowments and their activities.
3. Expanding into high-return but high-risk jurisdictions can also intensify reputational risks to institutions.
“Shift Left”- A New Age of eDiscovery – Analytics and ECA
Sponsored by LexisNexis
More than 90% of all cases settle prior to trial, and Early Case Assessment (ECA) can allow an organization to estimate risk when deciding whether to prosecute or defend a case. Employing analytics during ECA can reduce costs and enable more informed judgements during the early stages of discovery. In this interactive panel discussion, our team of experts will discuss their experience in employing ECA and the new age of integrating analytics early in the process. The discussion will include:
· Strategies on performing an ECA risk/benefit analysis;
· A new way of thinking: employing analytics in ECA?
· How does technology fit in to the process? We will include a discussion of challenges and lessons learned.
Earlier this year, hundreds of senior compliance leaders told Kroll and Ethisphere what they perceive to be their greatest risks in our 2016 Anti-Bribery and Corruption Report. Do you share the same challenges? Are you aware of or giving the requisite attention to new risks that have emerged? More important, what are the most effective ways to stay ahead of bribery and corruption challenges in 2016 and beyond?
In this interactive webinar on June 22, you will have the opportunity to learn about proven strategies and best practices for solving compliance challenges from our world-leading experts in FCPA, UK Bribery Act, and the growing number of international compliance laws.
Join in the conversation with Kevin Braine and Joe Spinelli from Kroll, and Erica Salmon Byrne from Ethisphere, as they share their insights on the practical implications of the most significant findings in the ABC Report, including the growing concerns over personal liability. All participants will also receive a digital copy of the ABC Report with statistics helpful for benchmarking their compliance programs.
When the EU’s highest court invalidated the Safe Harbor protections for transferring data from the EU to the U.S., hundreds of organizations were left scrambling, including law firms, legal service providers, and corporations involved in litigation and investigations. In addition, the proposed EU-wide General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) may severely limit the data that can be legally transferred outside of the EU. Recently, the EC and the U.S. Department of Commerce announced an agreement to replace the Safe Harbor agreement on transatlantic data flows with a new EU to U.S. “Privacy Shield.” In this webinar, international law experts will review the Privacy Shield and GDPR, with a focus on the tensions they create for multi-national organizations trying to meet U.S. discovery and investigation obligations.

Vietnam continues to be a major foreign direct investment destination in Asia Pacific. The country has positive macro-economic factors demonstrated by its solid and continued GDP growth, a number of free trade agreements, improving infrastructure and a young demographic and low labor costs which has encouraged businesses to relocate there. However, there remain a number of potential uncertainties and risks for inbound investors given the new government administration following the Communist Party of Vietnam’s 12th National Congress in January. The geo-political situation around the South China Sea is also an issue for those operating in Vietnam, and limitations in obtaining information and disclosures can present challenges to parties executing transactions.
Join Kroll and Duane Morris to learn about the risks and opportunities offered by Vietnam. Richard Dailly, Managing Director at Kroll, Giles Cooper, Partner, and Manfred Otto, Associate at Duane Morris will share more about Vietnam as an investment destination, what the legal and political risks are of doing business there and how the new administration and free trade agreements could affect inward foreign investment. They will also address the complexities of running a business in Vietnam, reviewing operational risks from investigations Kroll has conducted, Duane Morris's experiences with respect to due diligence of Vietnamese partners, compliant and workable solutions.
Cybersecurity Threats and Client Confidential Data: Navigating Risks and Ethical Obligations
Today's digital landscape is rife with constantly-evolving cybersecurity threats. No organization is immune, and all types of corporate data may be at risk, from personal information about customers and employees to intellectual property, litigation materials, business plans - even financial forecasts. Recent high profile data leaks have put a spotlight on law firm security. As custodians of a treasure trove of confidential client data, law firms and legal service providers often are prime targets for cyber criminals seeking access to highly valuable sensitive information.
In this fascinating webinar, we'll examine how ethical and professional obligations apply to the privacy and security of client data attorneys maintain, and discuss the types of incidents that frequently lead to significant breach events, including emerging and growing threats such as ransomware and phishing scams. We'll also use a real-world scenario to explore what typically happens when a breach occurs and consider steps lawyers and service providers may take to help safeguard their clients' data.
