Here’s a Webinar that Will Help You Reduce Data Volume in a Defensible Manner: eDiscovery Webinars

A primary issue in most eDiscovery matters is how to effectively reduce data volume in a defensible manner. As data goes through the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM), several steps are available to help limit the amount of data that will be eligible for review and production.  Here’s a webinar that will cover those steps and show you how to reduce data volume in a defensible manner.

On Thursday, June 18th, the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS) Houston Chapter will conduct the webcast ESI Culling & Processing Methodologies at 11:30am CT (12:30pm ET, 9:30am PT).  This webinar will walk through the EDRM and discuss the various ESI culling options from processing, to analysis, and to document review. Several culling processes will be discussed including deduplication, De-NISTing, the application of search terms, as well as several analytics tools, such as email threading, textual near duplicate identification, and Technology Assisted Review.

The presenter will be Xavier Diokno, a Senior Director of Consilio, a global leader in Legal Consulting & Legal Services (which you probably already knew)  As a senior director of Consilio’s Data Analytics group, Xavier oversees projects that involve Technology-Assisted Review, Immediate Case Assessments™ and analytics research , where he advises clients on how to leverage technology in supporting their projects.


As a member of the ACEDS Houston board, I will have the honor of moderating and introducing Xavier, so you know I’ll be there!  CLE accreditation is pending, but the webinar will likely be accredited in selected states.  So, that’s another great reason to attend!  And, of course, it’s free!  You can click here to register.  Consider checking it out!
