The protection of your organization's trade secrets, collected PII data, and confidential matters are your top priority. The same is an attractive asset for thousands of hackers around the world looking to profit or gain a competitive advantage that could damage the integrity and success of your organization’s objectives.
In this webinar, join three seasoned cybersecurity experts as they present the trends in cyberespionage and discuss:
• What makes organizations vulnerable to cyberespionage
• Why cyberespionage activity can vary across industries based on hacking drivers

It’s universally accepted that technology assisted review (TAR) speeds review and reduces costs, but many attorneys are still loathe to use it. In the eDJ Group’s recently released 2015 PC-TAR survey, nearly 40% of respondents say they are using TAR less than 5% of the time on their cases. While a majority of respondents say they have tried it, it’s clear that TAR hasn’t crossed the chasm as a go to tool for the legal community yet. Join Greg Buckles, eDJ co-founder and Tammy Doss, VP of Business Operations at Ipro, as they dig into what the survey and interview findings show for analytics and TAR usage and trends as we move into 2016.
Please join us on Thursday, December 3, 2015, from 1:00 to 2:00 pm Central as we present the free EDRM webinar, “Practical Options for US Litigators and Investigators Dealing with EU Data,” sponsored by EDT.
Since early October when the Court of Justice of the European Union deemed the Safe Harbor regime for European data transfers to the US to be invalid, many organizations have struggled to evolve their information management strategies to accommodate the changing international data privacy landscape.
While there are concerted diplomatic efforts underway to establish a robust new trans-Atlantic data transfer framework, the negotiations, are intrinsically linked to personal privacy and national security perspectives so resolution and clarity may take some time. Many litigators and investigators are, in the meantime, reeling in murky waters of uncertainty.
How effective are the alternative data transfer mechanisms? What are their limitations and how can these be addressed? Are there any new options available? Are different strategies needed for investigations as compared with discovery for litigation?
Join our EDRM webinar at 1pm on 3rd December 2015 to hear our international panel canvas key considerations and practical options for trans-Atlantic litigation and investigations in light of these recent developments.
This webinar is the final in a series of five practical sessions by the creators of the eMSAT-1. This webinar focuses on tying it all together: how to understand and act on the results obtained by completing the eMSAT.

In this webinar, our presenters will step you though an approach to eDiscovery that might not be so familiar to you: one grounded in data science, an investigative mindset, and a focus on the real end-game of discovery - bringing a case to a satisfactory resolution.

Join us as we demonstrate a new era in eDiscovery and a new innovation created to solve one of the industry’s most pressing and costly problems – disconnected and inefficient workflows. Currently, we batch data into containers to accommodate the limits of the processing tools we use. Breaking up data comes at signification cost, however: time. It takes time to create the batches, run each batch, and make sure that the batch ran properly without introducing errors. To eliminate the starts, stops and errors Ipro has introduced a patent-pending, continuous data streaming technology named, Automated Digital Discovery (ADD). By attending this webinar, you’ll see and in action and discuss how it unifies and simplifies the eDiscovery process.
Join us as we demonstrate a new era in eDiscovery and a new innovation created to solve one of the industry’s most pressing and costly problems – disconnected and inefficient workflows. Automation offers the ability to eliminate the usual starts and stops, as well as reduce many time-consuming human touch points while preparing data for review. By attending this session, you’ll learn how to avoid time delays, errors, and budget overruns common in today’s eDiscovery workflows.

Internal auditors play a vital role in their organization’s strategies and daily activities. Your department’s audit plan should be a well-balanced examination that covers regulatory requirements and aligns key risk areas within the organization. However, in today’s fast changing environment, plans change and the needs of the organization may evolve rapidly. Has your support of the organization kept pace with those changes? Should you make changes to your audit plan to ensure coverage of new risks? Also, do you know what new elements should be included in your 2014 plan?
The objective of this presentation is to help internal audit professionals identify emerging trends in need of attention so that auditors can better execute the department’s strategic focus on risk.

Internal Auditors are often the first line of defense in a company’s fight against fraud and corruption. Indeed, Internal Auditors are often called upon to “pivot” when a routine internal audit unearths red flags that may be indicators of fraud, corruption or misconduct.
This presentation is intended to provide internal auditors with:
•Knowledge of investigative techniques
•The ability to recognize fraud or corruption indicators
•Tools to respond to red flags

Infosec is known for constantly telling IT to "patch your stuff" to prevent getting compromised. Scan reports with a bunch of red are kicked over the wall, and scary reports showing thousands of vulnerabilities are an all-to-frequent result of a vulnerability assessment. But these scan reports are often lying about the true severity of the vulnerabilities, which creates more work for everyone and leaves Infosec crying wolf more often than it should. In this talk, we take a closer look at the problem with vulnerability ratings and how to have IT fail less by having to patch less, while simultaneously being more secure.
