Data Governance and Electronic Discovery - Flip Sides of the Same Coin
Moderated by Johnny Lee
Electronic Discovery ("eDiscovery”) can be a time-consuming, burdensome, and costly undertaking for your company. Studies indicate that nearly 90% of U.S. corporations are currently engaged in lawsuits and that the average U.S. company faces 305 such suits at any given time. Despite the prominent headlines, case law, and regulatory risks, in-house IT and legal departments are growing even more disconnected.
Please join us for an interactive discussion on the tools, techniques, and methodologies that are being used to help companies improve their grasp of the information they need to run their business while simultaneously improving their management of data during litigation, investigations, and compliance. The panel will include practitioners from the General Counsel and Chief Information Officer ranks as well as specialists focused upon electronic discovery and data governance. Please come prepared with questions for the panel, as this will be a highly interactive event.
