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

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.

EDRM recently released the EDRM Security Audit Questionnaire, designed to help corporations and law firms evaluate the security capabilities of cloud providers and third parties offering electronic discovery or managed services. In this webinar, two of the questionnaire’s designers will provide legal, IT, and corporate professionals with practical guidelines for conducting a security audit.
Presenters will introduce the questionnaire and walk through key benchmarks, weighting, scoring, and best practices for using the questionnaire to evaluate providers. The questionnaire is an Excel-based tool for scoring/assessing the security strengths and weaknesses in any organization. Webinar attendees are encouraged to download and review the Security Audit Questionnaire, available on the EDRM website, prior to the event.
Speakers will reserve time to answer audience questions about the security audit process. Jim Waldron, director of EDRM, and George Socha, cofounder of EDRM and managing director at BDO, will moderate the session.
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)

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.

Too often, eDiscovery professionals and investigators rely on methods - like screen printing - for social media discovery that are impossible to authenticate. And now, the Courts have taken notice. With a higher bar set for defensible collection in social media, it is time for a more practical approach to social discovery.
This webcast examines best practices of social discovery, no expert should ignore:
- Discoverability - including social media in eDiscovery plans and the impact on eDiscovery strategies
- Defensibility and authenticity - supporting case law that demands the use of a robust investigative platform that captures diverse types of content and metadata
- Challenges in dealing with this new data type - understanding common challenges associated with new forms of metadata and privacy issues
Watch this webcast to learn how and why to incorporate an investigative platform to collect, search, preserve and manage social media evidence and how to do so defensibly.
This webinar is free, but space is limited.
