eDiscovery + Information Governance Sessions

9.30am - 10.30am

Fitting Defensible Collection into Legal, Risks, Compliance & Governance Strategies
eDiscovery is a starting point for many organizations’ GRC programs. Implementing effective collection and preservation processes and solutions can dramatically reduce costs and mitigate risks. But, without doing collection in a truly defensible manner, organizations will only make eDiscovery more of a nightmare and face higher costs and negative outcomes.

Information Governance is Easier Than You Think
Information governance is plagued by perceptions that it is too complex, challenging and costly for organisations to address. This session will demystify information governance and include:

  1. Useful techniques to reduce cost and risk, and find information when you need it
  2. Real-world use cases and case studies of information governance success
  3. Information governance ‘quick wins’ suited to different organisations, industries and regulatory regimes

3.30pm - 4.00pm Tea Break

Social Media is surpassing email as a means of communication; what does this mean for data collection and your Information Governance Strategy?
Traction. Already in 2011, organizations are finding that other sources of ESI like documents/files and structured data are rivalling email in importance for eDiscovery requests, and this trend shows no signs of abating, particularly for regulated industries. This heterogeneous mix of ESI will certainly result in challenges for many companies, with some unlucky ones getting sanctioned because they ignored these emerging data types. Please attend this session to explore how to gain control of social media from a policy and technology perspective.
