The start of the eDiscovery Summer Refresher Virtual Conference, hosted by the San Diego Paralegal Association (SDPA) and the ACEDS Orange County Chapter, is here!  And I’m honored to kick it off tonight by telling you about the use of technology to address discovery challenges today and tomorrow!

As I discussed a couple of weeks ago, the Summer Refresher Virtual Conference will consist of six sessions to be conducted over five different days – at times that shouldn’t interfere with work hours!  Click here to find out details about the six sessions and to register for them, including tonight’s session!

As for my session tonight, the session – Applying Technology to Address Discovery Challenges Today and Tomorrow – will be at 5pm PT.  Here’s the description of that session:

In today’s world of dramatically increased remote work due to the pandemic, growing data privacy concerns with GDPR, CCPA and other data privacy legislation, increase in harassment claims with #metoo and rising corporate malfeasance concerns, organizations have more challenges than ever that require the application of discovery technology and workflows even if those challenges never lead to litigation. This session will discuss the drivers and challenges facing organizations today to leverage technology and best practices to address today’s evolving discovery needs. Topics include:

  • Challenges Posed by BIG Data and Variety of Data Sources
  • Data Privacy Trends and Challenges
  • Challenges from #metoo and Corporate Malfeasance
  • Key Stats and Challenges Regarding Data Breaches
  • The Move to Remote Work and Collaboration
  • Will Information Governance Bail Us Out of This Mess?
  • Data Discovery vs. Legal Discovery
  • Technology to Address Challenges Today and Tomorrow
  • Predictions for the Future
  • Recommendations for Addressing Discovery Challenges

Attendees at each session are eligible for One Hour of CA MCLE – Courtesy of San Diego Paralegal Association.  So, it’s a great opportunity to pick up needed CLE credits, learning about six interesting topics!  You can register for the eDiscovery Summer Refresher Virtual Conference here!

I’m honored to be presenting at the kick-off session along with Marla Mohr and excited to discuss today’s eDiscovery challenges and how technology is addressing those challenges!  During happy hour, no less!  It’s 5:00 somewhere – and, tonight, that will be where we are!  #byoab!
