  • Ethical Considerations and Use of AI to Identify Personal Health Information
    Ethical Considerations and Use of AI to Identify Personal Health Information
    Mallory Acheson – Head of Analytics & Lucie Cohen – Partner Nelson Mullins Recorded: Jul 29 2020 55 mins
    On trend with the recent uptick in the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in the legal industry and the rise in privacy concerns, we will address ethical duties surrounding the use of AI, specifically for identifying personal information within a dataset. The legal-tech community has seen a rise in technologies designed to not only identify PHI and PII within a data set, but claiming to have the capability to automatically redact, pseudonymize, and even create notification lists for data breaches. While these technologies offer significant efficiencies and cost savings, they raise questions regarding how much knowledge, supervision, and reliance may be given, implicating multiple ethical considerations, including MRCP Rule 1.1 regarding attorney competence (specifically comment 8 on knowledge of risks and benefits with technology), Rule 1.6 surrounding confidentiality requirements, Rule 5.1 regarding attorney duties of supervision, and ABA and other state ethics issued guidelines.

    Understanding all of the systems being used across your company has been a growing challenge for many years, with many companies just starting to get a handle managing a data map of all the applications that are in use. Now, in light of the "new normal" of distributed teams, it's time to reassess. Did you have to add virtual access systems for sensitive on premises data? What collaboration and conferencing tools have had to be added? We'll discuss this and areas you may not have yet considered with an eye toward information governance best practices and regulatory compliance.

    “Collecting & Preserving Websites and Social Media — The DIY Way”
    Brett Burney, Principal, Burney Consultants and Jesse Ward, Customer Success Manager, Pagefreezer Recorded: Jul 9 2020 62 mins
    Screenshots aren’t enough — DIY website & social media collections:

    Many legal professionals still resort to static images (screenshots and simple PDFs) as a way of collecting and preserving website and social media evidence. While this is sometimes good enough to be submitted as evidence, it invites questions around authenticity from opposing counsel.

    A far better idea is to adopt a solution that allows for easy evidence collection and not only does away with manual and frustrating screen-shotting, but also includes all associated metadata, and furnishes evidence with an authenticating hash value.

    Register for this webinar to learn more about:
    - The legal requirements for authentication of website and social media evidence
    - The challenges and risks of manual collection through static images
    - The importance of hash values and metadata
    - More effective and efficient alternatives for DIY evidence collection

This three-part webinar will explore the constitutional and practical aspects of electronic information in the criminal context. Part One will examine the applicability of the Fourth Amendment. Part Two will look to circumstances under which the Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination may be invoked when individuals are asked to unlock or decrypt devices such as cell phones. Part Three will consider “cooperation” between prosecution and defense as well as admissibility.

    Speaker: Michelle Ruch, Product Manager, ZDiscovery Zapproved Recorded: Jun 16 2020 57 mins
    There has been a great disturbance to the force. No, we aren’t quoting Star Wars, but we are talking about a shift to larger remote workforces stemming from Covid-19 considerations. As the line between work and home blurs, corporate legal teams may see a downturn in certain types of workplace-related matters, but we can all expect a new category of Covid-19 claims. The exact nature of those claims is still unfolding - and for now, legal teams are doing their best to plan for the unknowns coming down the pipeline.

    The sea of uncertainties can feel overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be, because one thing remains certain: while the types of internal investigations may shift over the next several months, the process to defensibly manage an investigation remains the same.

    This webcast will feature Zapproved’s Internal Investigations Playbook, including actionable steps and best practices. Join us on June 16th to learn more about:

    FACT: The most expensive stage in e-discovery is document review, often accounting for 80% or more of total e-discovery costs.

    Unfortunately though, many legal departments haven't seen their document review costs decline. Attempts often fail because they don't get to the root of the problem: too much data is preserved, collected and sent to outside entities.

    In the third webcast in Exterro’s E-Discovery Masters Series, a panel of experts from Verizon Media, Ernst & Young and Epiq will discuss the best approaches for implementing Legal GRC protocols that create an efficient and cost effective e-discovery strategy.

    - Practices for identifying responsive data at the earliest stages in the matter
