Three Components To Assess Discovery Readiness and a Webinar Announcement!: eDiscovery Best Practices

As part of the Educational partnership between Ipro and eDiscovery Today that was announced recently, I’m excited to say that I will be writing a new weekly blog post for Ipro’s blog, to supplement the excellent educational content that Jim Gill and the Ipro team regularly provide!  Just like I do on eDiscovery Today, I will write educational posts about a variety of topics related to eDiscovery, cybersecurity and data privacy.

Today’s weekly blog post for Ipro’s blog is about three components to gathering information to not only generate a SWOT analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) for your organization, but also to assess your organization’s overall discovery readiness.  Neither can be conducted in a vacuum – chances are that you have some information to gather to complete that SWOT analysis and that discovery readiness assessment fairly and accurately.

So, what are the three components to assessing your organization’s discovery readiness from the ground up?  You can find out on Ipro’s blog here.  😉  Don’t worry, it’s just one extra click!  And, of course, I’ll still be continuing to write plenty of posts on eDiscovery Today as well!


But I’m not done yet!  😉  Since the onset of the COVID-19, the opportunities and threats organizations face (including those associated with discovery) have changed – dramatically. What is your organization doing to assess its strengths and weaknesses in responding to the opportunities and threats resulting from the pandemic? Here’s a webinar will discuss best practices for preparing a SWOT analysis and updating it to address today’s COVID-19 world. 

On Wednesday, September 9th at 2pm ET (1pm CT, 11am PT), Ipro will conduct the webinar Legal SWOT Analysis: Identifying Opportunities & Threats for eDiscovery, Cybersecurity & Data Privacy During the Pandemic. Topics include:

  • Understanding benefits associated with a SWOT analysis
  • Best practices associated with creating and maintaining a SWOT analysis
  • Potential uses for SWOT analysis in eDiscovery, cybersecurity and data privacy
  • Examples of discovery-related opportunities and threats associated with the pandemic
  • Walk-thru example of SWOT analysis to address today’s discovery challenges
  • Next steps for getting started

I’ll be presenting, along with two of my favorite people(!) – Tom O’Connor, Director of the Gulf Legal Technology Center and Jim Gill, Content Marketing Manager (and blogger extraordinaire) for Ipro.  Should be interesting and a lot of fun!  Don’t miss it, click here to register!

So, what do you think?  Have you ever prepared a SWOT analysis before?  If not, attend our webinar to learn how to prepare one!   And, please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
