Join us on Thursday, November 7 from 1:00 to 2:00 pm Central when we present the free UF Law / EDRM webinar, “E-Discovery Processing Made Simple” – sponsored by Nuix.
To find critical electronically stored information in a large body of data, you often first need to process the data. And when you process data, you better do so in a way you can defend. With the help of Nuix’s new e-discovery Director, the University of Florida E-Discovery Project team will de-mistify processing and walk the audience though data processing from document input to output for review. Learn the critical processing events you need to know and watch how processing can be managed with intuitively understandable graphics, charts and reports.
Speakers and Moderators:
* Martin Audet, Nuix
* Bill Hamilton, UF Law E-Discovery Project
* George Socha, EDRM
* Tom Gelbmann, EDRM
Despite the emergence of more comprehensive, all-in-one e-discovery systems, most organizations still rely on an assembly of disparate technologies to support e-discovery efforts. Just like a car is dependent on an intricate set of moving parts working in unison, a successful e-discovery process is equally reliant on technology integration and alignment: HR systems should update legal hold custodian lists, while matter management solutions should sync matter information with other e-discovery applications, and data collection tools should accurately collect from archiving databases. The list of potential integrations goes on and on.
Masters of systems integration will share their perspective on the components needed to create an integrated e-discovery environment, including:
The risks of not integrating systems and commonly collected data sources
- Essential e-discovery integrations for defensible and efficient e-discovery
- How to leverage pre-existing technology investments to increase visibility and quickly access e-discovery information
Streamlining Data Preservation for Regulatory and E-Discovery Purposes: The benefits of integrating your data archive into the preservation process
For most large organizations, there will always be a need to retain data for varying periods of time, depending on internal policies and external regulatory mandates. When considering retention requirements, organizations need to defensibly preserve data across a wide variety of data types, including structured and unstructured data (emails, word documents, excel spreadsheets, etc.). Often these preservation requirements are painful for organizations to coordinate and, as a result, data that should be deleted often isn’t.
In this webcast, data archiving and e-discovery specialists will discuss how IT and Legal can collaborate better and overcome the challenges when trying to preserve data across the enterprise, including:
• Best practices for streamlining the data preservation process.
• How integrations can make the task of preserving, monitoring and defensibly deleting data easier.
Discovery has moved from the time of paper, to the on-premise era, and now to the cloud age. Join our speakers as they discuss the attributes of true e-discovery cloud solutions; compare the benefits and shortcomings of cloud versus more traditional approaches; and help corporate personnel understand how to catch that waving, moving their e-discovery to true cloud solutions.

Considerations for Corporate Legal Teams Managing E-Discovery in a Changing Tech Environment
As increasing numbers of corporations move to cloud productivity solutions like Microsoft Office 365, Box, Google Apps, and others, the legal department is tasked with the expanded challenge of managing the complex process of e-discovery in an environment where electronically stored information (ESI) is not only growing at an exponential rate but increasing in complexity due to the emergence of cloud sources.
This webinar will share considerations that will help in-house corporate legal teams navigate this process and illustrate the opportunities and the risks cloud data brings and effectively manage e-discovery in a complex tech environment.

Sponsored by LexisNexis, this webinar will focus on using analytics and visualizations to gain better insight into your data:
Big Data plays a big role in litigation for many law firms and organizations. Having the ability to cull down your data earlier in the litigation cycle enables your firm or organization to work more efficiently and competitively. Technology is increasingly playing a key role in helping firms and organizations effectively identify and manage the data most important to your litigation. This session will discuss the emerging trends around analytics in eDiscovery, and how your firm or organization can implement best practices to ensure the highest quality results at a lower cost than traditional document reviews.

The status of employees constantly changes within an organization. They go on leave, move to new positions/locations, take assignments with different business units or subsidiaries, or depart the organization altogether. Annually organizations will have 12-15% of their workforce leave their company. While employee movements are a routine element of modern business life, they take on critical significance in the context of e-discovery, where failing to properly track employees can very easily result in data spoliation and severe sanctions.
In this webcast, e-discovery experts will discuss:
- The legal ramifications of data that is deleted as a result of employees leaving or changing roles at an organization
- The proper workflows/protocols to prevent employee data from being deleted
- Importance of briefing new employees of existing legal hold obligations
- How technology can aid in preventing unwanted data deletion (a short demonstration of Exterro Fusion® will be provided)
Corporations around the globe are adopting cloud solutions as a secure way to store and share information. At the same time, their legal and IT departments are challenged to develop a comprehensive e-discovery strategy for ongoing litigation, arbitration, and internal regulatory investigations.
In this one-hour webinar, Guidance Software and Box® team up to present the integration that enables streamlined, defensible discovery of ESI stored on Box with EnCase® eDiscovery. The webinar will cover:
-Goals and requirements for secure cloud storage
-Complexities associated with e-discovery collection from the cloud
-How to deploy an EnCase eDiscovery/Box integrated solution
-A case study on an organizations currently using this integrated solution

For the past few years, e-discovery tools have been propagating new
"visualization" technologies. While these have enlivened display monitors at technology fairs, they have not been incorporated into daily workflows. As workloads have grown, however, and as the tools have evolved, practitioners have begun to appreciate the practicality of quickly assessing relationships, emphases and activity-levels using timelines, graphical representations, and the ability to "zoom in" on important needles in their electronic haystacks. Join our panel as we describe ways to redesign your workflow to make the most of these new tools.

The target of discovery in civil litigation now is electronic data. The failure to respond effectively to electronic discovery demands can lead to significant monetary sanctions, adverse case results, and even jail time. The failure to have one’s electronic discovery house in order can mean that efforts to respond to electronic discovery demands can be extremely burdensome and expensive as repeat fire drills. This presentation will explain the current state of the law and technology when it comes to electronic discovery and will provide guidance on how best to effectively handle electronic discovery in civil litigation to minimize expense and to optimize case results.Read more >
