The Great Resignation, Return or Reshuffle? Part 2

A recent Zapier survey on the future of work polled 600 #knowledgeworkers from SMB companies. 64% said that remote work makes them more productive. While they feel more productive, how can remote professionals demonstrate that productivity without giving up their privacy?   The Great Reshuffle is about the evolving employee-employer relationship more than just where we perform that work. Monitoring utilization, security and work [...]

How Locked Down Are Your Users?

I have been alpha testing some new tech recently and ran into wildly different levels of user endpoint security across global enterprise environments. None of the endpoint security surveys I found included practical strategies and policy practices restricting user access to external cloud applications, browser extensions, desktop apps and mobile apps. I wrote a quick survey covering these and hope that you are as [...]

User Recommendations – Privacy Red Flag?

I spend a lot of time reading Microsoft’s Roadmap or listening to M365 related podcasts while I hike with our dogs (got to exercise the meat puppet). This addiction started when all of my clients were asking about the #eDiscovery/#Infogov implications of their impending or recent migration to the cloud. Better to be ahead of them than constantly saying, “I will find out and [...]

Ready for LegalWeek NY 2022?

The Omicron @LegalWeek push back and my diving vacation killed my packed February briefing schedule. Fourteen days out I responded to a fresh batch of briefing/speaking requests and pinged some of my favorite folks to see if I could piece it back togeth er. Grateful that less that 24 hours later my show calendar is filling up. I hope that your time in NY [...]

Incognito Does Not Mean What You Think It Means

Google’s definition of ‘private’ is slowly coming to light thanks to a $5B class action lawsuit and recent Congressional hearings. There seems to be some emails and second hand accounts supporting the assertion that Google executives were well aware of how the public might react if they found out that Google and other sites could still track user searches, URL’s and actions while in [...]

Apple Scanning ALL U.S. iPhones in a BYOD World

Apple plans to start scanning all U.S. iPhones for images of child sexual abuse using a tool called “neuralMatch” or “NeuralHash” against a database of known images. Womble Dickinson’s JDSupra article covers many of the high-level privacy concerns and explores Apple’s plans for a service that will scan encrypted messages for sexually explicit content to provide parental notice. Using a generated hash to check [...]

IM eDiscovery: Resurrecting the 5000:1 Rule

One of my Litsupport team wearing the departmental t-shirts. Used with permission Blame Jonathan Maas for reminding me of my 5000:1 rule from the Enron email review. “For every 5,000 emails we review someone gets fired.” To put that rule in late 1990’s context, everyone having a corporate email account was still a relatively new thing. Just like the pandemic driven adoption [...]

Employer Policies Requiring Vaccination

Now that vaccines are approved and in the pipeline it is time for employers to decide whether they will be required for all or certain workplace employees. I hope that these December 16, 2020 EEOC Guidelines will be more consistent than previous CDC and other workplace COVID-19 guidelines. So far, corporations continue to face potential liability relating to their safety policies/practice. Now they have [...]

Solargate: A Global Trojan Horse in the Supply Train

Good summary and perspective by Doug. First a bit of context and techno translation. The Orion Platform is SolarWinds’ primary systems management bundle for on-premise and hybrid environments. SolarWinds’ products cover the breadth of IT management. That means the hacked version of Orion gave the hackers potential access to servers, applications, databases, storage and more. I have struggled to keep up with the new [...]

Who is Selling eDiscovery Peer Contact Info?

NOTE: Although this is a real email thread, it does not contain my usual technical, process or market perspectives. Instead, I got tired of the barrage of emails offering me YOUR contact information, so I decided to expand my usual Request to be Forgotten and run down exactly whom was selling this 'global eDiscovery contact list'. Enjoy. Angela, After not receiving a response multiple [...]
