  • After the incident: investigating and responding to a data breach Recorded: Sep 25 2018 57 mins
    EDRM and AccessData
    Frequent news of high-profile data breaches at companies like Equifax, Target, Yahoo and more are proof that it’s no longer a matter of if, but when, the next company will make headlines for having personal customer data exposed, their brand and reputation left in ruins. Will your company or client be the next victim?

    During this webinar, panelists will discuss where to begin after the breach―from the initial identification and investigation, through reporting findings and learning from the incident. We’ll discuss the important role of legal throughout the process, and how legal and IT/Security teams must effectively collaborate to ensure a successful investigation.
  • How to Evaluate & Improve Your E-Discovery Process Recorded: Sep 13 2018 63 mins
    EDRM and Exterro
    No two e-discovery processes are alike. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t universal principles and tools to evaluate and take steps to improve your e-discovery processes.

    Register for this webinar and learn from three e-discovery practitioners about how they have assessed and mended gaps in their e-discovery processes, including:
    -Tips and tools for evaluating your own e-discovery process
    -How to get buy-in across departments for real change

  • Seven Steps to Effective Regulatory Response Recorded: Sep 5 2018 60 mins
    EDRM and Zapproved
    Learn the seven steps to effective regulatory response and be prepared to respond quickly to ensure compliance.

    Regulatory agencies such as the SEC and CFTC can initiate an investigation into business activity at any time, bringing challenges beyond those of typical ediscovery. Regulatory investigations often relate to unclear charges, make broad and sweeping data requests under unrealistically tight timelines, and bear severe consequences for noncompliance. Organizations need to be prepared to identify, preserve, and analyze relevant information rapidly and accurately.

    In this webinar, Zapproved will discuss seven clear, actionable steps to launch a successful regulatory response. These steps start with strategizing and preserving data before moving into assessing information, negotiating the terms of the request, creating privilege logs, and keeping the lines of communication open.

    Any organization subject to regulatory oversight could be investigated at any time. Prepare today so you can face tomorrow with confidence.
  • Avoid Surprising Litigation Discoveries–Leveraging Tech for Complex Litigation Recorded: Aug 7 2018 61 mins
    EDRM and TCDI
    Complex Litigation management is no easy task and managing the growing amounts of data from different teams can seem impossible. Does your case management tool help you manage multiple cases in one dashboard? Are you able to visualize all of your data at once and create clear and persuasive charts and graphs to tell your story? Are you able to keep your law firms from duplicating efforts?

    Register for this webinar to learn how you can leverage the latest technology to link case profiles, contacts, calendar items, transcripts, exhibits, pleadings and other litigation materials together for one-click access. The panel of experts will share strategies for simplifying complex litigation management and multi-case data in one central repository to reduce time, effort and cost for all legal teams involved.

  • BYOD: Do benefits of personal devices at work outweigh drawbacks? Recorded: Jul 17 2018 63 mins
    EDRM and AccessData
    Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies present many benefits for both employees and companies, but they also bring unwanted risk associated with allowing individuals to access and share company information through non-monitored personal devices.

    AccessData and Corporate Counsel Business Journal have partnered on a survey of Corporate Legal professionals to identify current BYOD trends and concerns, and understand the impact it is having on e-discovery. Join us for this one-hour webinar where we will review the findings of this exclusive survey and highlight best practices for organizations allowing personal device use for business purposes, to help ensure data is protected and accessible in the event of e-discovery.

  • Cybersecurity and Law Firms: Understanding Legal and Ethical Obligations Recorded: May 10 2018 62 mins
    TCDI and EDRM
    Many have heard of the Panama and Paradise Papers where millions of sensitive documents were released to the public. Cybersecurity is not a new issue and the damage caused by attacks is rising exponentially each year. In fact, it is expected that cybercrime damages will reach 6 trillion dollars by 2021. Of the organizations targeted, law firms are seeing a rise in attacks due to the nature of the data they hold. In this presentation, a panel consisting of legal and technology experts, moderated by Tim Opsitnick of TCDI, will discuss the current trends in cyber attacks, why attackers are focusing on law firms and the techniques they implement, and the legal and ethical obligations a lawyer has in regard to protecting his or her clients' confidential data. Speakers include David Shonka, Former Acting General Counsel, Federal Trade Commission; Eric Vanderburg, Vice President, TCDI; and Kevin F. Brady, Of Counsel, Redgrave LLP.
  • Challenges and Benefits of E-Discovery in the Cloud Recorded: Mar 22 2018 61 mins
    EDRM and AccessData
    Legal departments are tasked with managing more data, from more sources than ever before during e-discovery. The exponential growth of data sets, coupled with the need to reduce cost while still ensuring data security and privacy, can feel overwhelming.

    We’ve seen a rapid migration to the cloud by corporations as a way of managing data, reducing overhead expense, improving efficiency and collaboration and other advantages. But the movement to the cloud can also present some challenges, especially when e-discovery requires collection of data out of cloud platforms.

    Join us for a thoughtful discussion on the challenges and advantages of e-discovery and the cloud, where we’ll cover:
    •Key e-discovery considerations when establishing a cloud migration plan
    •Challenges of collecting data stored in the cloud as part of an e-discovery investigation
    •GDPR and other privacy considerations for data in the cloud
    •And more

  • Managed Services – Treat the Cause… Not the Symptoms Recorded: Sep 21 2016 60 mins
    Stephen Whestone, Brad Harris, Bonnie Kennedy, George Socha, Tom Gelbmann
    EDRM webinar sponsored by Stroz Friedberg

    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.

    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.
