EMC eDiscovery – Kazeon to Sponsor CLE Sessions at LegalTech 2012
With the continuing growth of eDiscovery, rapidly developing case law, and new technologies, the complexities associated with eDiscovery are daunting. The risk of mis-steps during the eDiscovery process weighs on the minds of Corporate Counsel, as well as IT professionals. What do legal and IT professionals need most? Advice and education from trusted experts and professionals who have been in the eDiscovery trenches.
“eDiscovery and Information Governance is a dynamic and complex market. To be successful with eDiscovery projects and develop broader information governance strategies, teamwork across traditional roles is mandatory,” says James D. Shook, Esq., Director of eDiscovery and Compliance Practice at EMC. “This is our third year of sponsoring a day of thought leadership CLE sessions at LegalTech. With this year’s lineup we have brought together the best legal and technical minds to deliver best practice insights during sessions at Legal Tech in New York.”
EMC is sponsoring the following sessions for CLE credit on January 31st in Concourse E:
Harnessing Search Technology Effectively – 9:00 am – 10:00 am
Search has become a cornerstone of all legal technology, from legal research to early case assessment to document review. As search becomes more accessible, it also becomes more powerful, requiring experts in the technology to take full advantage of the available tools. There is still a gap though, as search methodologies used in different stages of a case are vastly different. Case teams need to assess what strategies must be used, engage experts in both subject matter and search technology, and be aware of potential pitfalls. This session will provide attendees an opportunity to hear from experts in the field, preparing them to tackle search more effectively in their own cases.

Overcoming the FUD To Bring eDiscovery In-House – 10:30 am – 11:30 am
Bringing more of the eDiscovery process in-house can result in substantial savings and better control over the process. Yet many corporate IT and in-house counsel are afraid to assume the responsibility for the process. Listen to a panel of experts discuss the most common concerns and how to overcome them to improve your process.

Security, Hacking, and the Rise of Corporate CyberTerrorism: What every GC must Know! – 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
The benefits of corporate networks and the Internet, which deliver instant global communications, have accelerated the pace of business. However, they have also created new vulnerabilities that cyber criminals, nation-states and “hacktivists” have learned to exploit. Andrew Cohen, Esq., and Branden Williams were part of a team that responded to an advanced cyber attack on RSA in March of 2011. In this session, you will learn the impact of advanced threats to corporate security, the impact of large scale intellectual property theft, and what every General Counsel must know to help protect corporate interests. RSA, The Security Division of EMC, provides security, compliance and risk management solutions to organizations throughout the world including 90 percent of Fortune 500 companies.

The Case For Machine Coding in Document Review: A Judicial Perspective – 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
The case for using machine coding and classification of documents in the eDiscovery review process has never been stronger. As costs and ESI volumes continue to grow, machine coding promises faster, cheaper – and better. Yet there remain many concerns about how to properly use these technologies, and the potential for risk when used incorrectly. Hear what a prominent member of the Judiciary and members of the Bar have to say about the promising future – and their concerns for reaching it.

What it takes to have fun as a 30(b)6 witness – 3:15 pm – 4:15 pm
We have all heard horror stories, reviewed cases about organizations / defense teams who crashed and burned in court when they brought their ill-prepared, inarticulate, tech heads into the courtroom as “subject-matter-expert” (SME) / 30(b)6 witnesses in Federal Court on electronic records and eDiscovery matters. Therefore, we have seen many examples of what not to do in those critical / do-or-die situations. We at EMC thought it was about time someone showed you and explained what an example of an effective 30(b)6 witness looks like in addition, to what it took to prepare, what to do, what not to do and what was learned from the experience. This session will employ a role-play learning method with a plaintiff as-well-as defense attorneys and our SME witness.

Laws, Regulations, and the Cloud: The Confluence of eDiscovery with Pervasive Governance – 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm
Today, many organizations are looking to the Cloud for answers for controlling escalating information management costs. However, organizations cannot just be focused on the perceived information technology infrastructure cost savings offered by the Cloud. Organizations must be equally focused on laws, regulations and information governance issues. If your organization has governance issues currently, then the Cloud will only exacerbate them. Discover what the Cloud means to others and why it’s critical to place Pervasive Governance ahead of any Cloud initiative in your organization.
