We all know that the ESI volumes are too large, too complicated, and too uncontrolled for analysis by conventional eDiscovery techniques. However, despite current, popular belief, TAR is not the cure-all for the big data disease. Machine learning, intelligent review, predictive coding, TAR, – whatever you choose to call it – is one important weapon in a much larger arsenal. Today’s real problem facing litigation teams: knowing what technology to use, when to use it and how best to apply it. This webinar will navigate the entire eDiscovery technology terrain, including traditional search methods, concept searching, topic grouping, email threads, language identification and more…and of course, we will discuss the way you assimilate TAR into the mix. Speakers for this webinar will be Barry Murphy of the eDJ Group and Baker Donelson's Samuel Miller. This webinar is free thanks to our sponsor Kroll Ontrack.
Too often, archiving is thought of as simply a way to save storage costs or as just a way to manage email. Because email archiving has matured over the last decade, some are lulled to sleep thinking that archiving is easy. While archiving has been around for some time, projects are still challenge. There are more and more types of data from diverse sources such as SharePoint and file systems. There are more deliver options for archiving solutions, including on-premise software, software-as-a-service (SaaS), and hybrid models. With eDiscovery gaining more attention, archiving is more important than ever. Not only can archiving deliver IT cost savings, but it can drastically reduce the cost of eDiscovery and kickstart successful information governance initiatives. This webinar will look at trends in archiving and examine how organizations can optimize existing archiving projects as well as insure productive starts to new projects.
eDiscovery is a starting point for many organizations’ information governance 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. This webinar will focus on how to get started with effective collection initiatives and how to make them defensible.
Few topics are as hyped right now as The Cloud thanks to its promise to drastically reduce the costs of storing information and implementing software applications. Despite the hype, research shows that few companies are actually leveraging cloud-based eDiscovery solutions today. However, the same research shows that companies plan to leverage the cloud – and soon. As a result, there is a limited timeframe in which to gear up for The Cloud and eDiscovery. It will not necessarily be easy to address the new challenges associated with The Cloud, but ignoring the will leave companies with higher eDiscovery costs and higher risk exposure.
This webinar explores current and planned rates of usage of cloud-based solutions for eDiscovery. It also analyze the areas where cloud-based solutions can have the biggest impact on eDiscovery and how The Cloud fits with in-house solutions as part of a holistic eDiscovery strategy. Further, this session breaks down the concerns that keep many companies from adopting The Cloud – like security and privacy – and offer pragmatic ways to address these concerns. Speakers for this webinar are Barry Murphy of the eDJ Group and Martin Tully, Partner at Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP.

Is information governance on your radar screen? It’s certainly on ours. For the past several months, eDJ has been conducting an information governance survey with Barclay Blair of ViaLumina, Ltd. Analysis of the results is ongoing. The data is teaching us a lot about the topic; we’ll use the data to put some definition around the term and provide some recommendations on how to gain real value through information governance.
Are your corporate archives growing out of control? Can’t get permission to expire outdated email and files? Join eDJ analyst Greg Buckles, Monsanto Associate General Counsel Kyle McClain, and Symantec eDiscovery Attorney Alison Walton to learn the strategies and best practices for placing legal holds on your archives.
The session will cover:
Checklist for expiry
Risk reduction techniques
Matter vs. Global holds
Custodial hold strategies and issues
Exceptions and declarations
Quality assurance and protocol documentation
eDJ’s Greg Buckles and Barry Murphy discuss the trending topics in the eDiscovery space – creating the eDiscovery plan, predictive coding, the evolution of legal hold, and the emergence of the eDiscovery platform.
As eDiscovery raises its profile in the mainstream news and on the corporate radar, there is a strong desire to assert control over it. To reduce costs and risks, corporations must approach e-discovery as a manageable, repeatable business process. By combining intelligent workflows with comprehensive data management, organizations can streamline the e-discovery process. This means integrating information from various ESI data sources (such as SharePoint and Exchange), creating a unified and transparent view of potentially responsive information and making informed decisions early and efficiently. This webinar will explore current eDiscovery challenges and the advantages of marrying workflow and data into in a central interface.
There is a great deal of interest in technology-assisted legal review because of the potential to save significant money. Traditionally, about 70% of eDiscovery costs lie in document review. Investing in technology-assisted review methods like Meaning Based Coding is therefore becoming a priority for many organizations – corporation and law firms alike. However, there is confusion over what technology-assisted review is. Does it eliminate the human element in legal review? Is it defensible? What exactly is technology-assisted review trying to accomplish? And, where do all the different terms associated with technology-assisted review – predictive coding, Meaning Based Coding, etc. – fit?
This webinar explores exactly what technology-assisted review is and how its practice can benefit organizations. eDJ shares results from a recent survey on the adoption of technology-assisted review and future plans that organizations have. The webinar will also address the defensibility of technology-assisted review practices and arm organizations with the right questions to ask themselves before experimenting with technology-assisted review. Speaking at this webinar will be Barry Murphy of the eDJ Group. Thomas Gricks of Schnader, Harrison, Segal & Lewis LLP and Chuck Rothman of Wortzman Nickle offer perspectives from the trenches of technology-assisted review.
Viewers of this webinar will learn:
• What technology-assisted review is and the different methods that exist
• Current and planned rates of usage of technology-assisted review amongst your peer organizations
• How to assess the defensibility of technology-assisted review approaches
• How to plan for the human element necessary in technology-assisted review
• What real-life technology-assisted review projects are like and what lessons have been learned.

Amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) in 2006 invigorated the eDiscovery market. These amendments have created debate over what obligations organizations have in terms of collecting, preserving, reviewing, and production information in response to litigation. One of the amendments – to Rule 34(b) – made the default obligation to produce a document “in a form or forms in which it is ordinarily maintained or in a form or forms that are reasonably usable.’ This begs the question of whether all documents must be delivered in native format (e.g. Microsoft Word or Excel) versus the traditional TIFF or PDF production.
For many businesses, the use of social media is a necessity. FaceBook, Twitter, Blogs, and YouTube are marketing vehicles that can help campaigns go viral at a fraction of the cost of traditional advertising. LinkedIn is a networking tool that can allow workers to find and connect with new business partners and customers. Simply put, businesses cannot afford not to be social. However, companies that dive into social media without the right policies and solutions to govern usage will encounter information governance and eDiscovery nightmares down the road.
This webinar will explore the current state of eDiscovery and information governance for social media content. We will review the relevant case law and regulatory rules that prescribe social media governance requirements for the US and special mention of Asia. Further, we will explore the methods for collecting and preserving social media content. Finally, we will present the considerations companies should make when creating policies for social media. Speakers for this webinar will be Barry Murphy of the eDJ Group and Allison Walton, eDiscovery Attorney at Symantec. Attendees of this webinar will learn:
•How pervasive social media is in eDiscovery today
•How to mitigate and manage risks associated with individual and corporate social media use
•How to evaluate the methods for collecting and preserving social media
•How to analyze the privacy policies of the major social media publishers
•How to create effective social media usage policies
•The best ways to execute proactive social media governance

LinkedIn is a networking tool that can allow workers to find and connect with new business partners and customers. Simply put, businesses cannot afford not to be social. The existence of social media content means there will be a need to collect and preserve it in the event of litigation, regulatory requests, or other investigations. But, social media content presents a whole new set of eDiscovery challenges – new forms of content, additional types of metadata, and new ways of authenticating ESI.
There are several approaches to collecting and preserving social media, but they are not all created equal. This webinar will explore the various methods for collecting and preserving social media and the associated strengths and challenges. We will also review the use cases for social media collection and preservation and provide guidance on how various organizations can proceed in getting social media under control for eDicovery. Speakers for this webinar will be Barry Murphy of the eDJ Group and William W. Belt, Jr., Shareholder, LeClairRyan.
