ReDiscovering Discovery at the 2020 EDI Leadership Summit
Sep 23 2020
Tuesday, October 13 • 10:15 – 11:15 a.m. ET
Jason Lichter will moderate the panel, “Practical Steps to Safeguard Client Data in the Age of Ransomware,” at the 2020 EDI Leadership Summit.
The recent ransomware attack against a prominent eDiscovery service provider should remind us all that there are only two types of companies: those that have already been hacked and those that will be hacked in the future. Just as we are all told to “make a plan” in advance of an emergency, it is imperative that corporations and law firms alike revisit their service provider relationships and implement safeguards and contingency plans to ensure eDiscovery continuity the next time disaster strikes.
Protective orders and ESI protocols should also impose information security mandates on the recipients of sensitive client data. Panelists will discuss the steps they have already taken, and those they are presently evaluating, to protect their data and maintain eDiscovery operations in the event of a service provider hack.
