The e-Discovery and e-Investigations Forum 2013 Executive Summary Speakers 2013

The e-Discovery and e-Investigations Forum is designed to meet the needs of key stakeholders and decision makers who are responsible for ensuring compliance with legal requirements, managing internal investigations and preparing for or responding to regulatory investigations and litigation events.

The agenda provides strategic and technical advice, examples of best practice and practical case studies that detail how organisations can keep the costs of compliance to a minimum and ensure an efficient response to data requests from internal or external parties.

The results of the recent 'e-Disclosure 2020' survey that polled over 200 representatives of global business and legal services firms indicates that over 85% of IT and legal professionals believe, due to trends in their organisation, that there will be an increased requirement to retrieve targeted data related to individuals, actions, or events. The survey results further demonstrate that the majority of respondents agreed that:
  • The main cause of inefficiency when trying to locate relevant data is that the methodology used returns a high volume of irrelevant records
  • The main reasons for large volumes of irrelevant data being returned in searches is that data has not been consistently or adequately organised into clearly defined categories when saved or archived
  • The technological trend of most concern in terms of ability to retrieve data is the storage of company data on web-based third-party servers
  • The need to retrieve electronic data in cases of litigation, regulation or investigation will necessitate the creation of a new in-house function that manages all business processes that relate to data creation, storage and retrieval
Those attending include heads and directors of IT, compliance, investigations, forensics, records management, privacy, audit, legal and HR. Industry sectors typically represented range from finance and legal services through to oil and gas, food and beverage, pharmaceuticals and manufacturing.

This conference delivers delegates with solution frameworks that can help reduce risk, enable operational flexibility, minimise complexity, create value and keep costs low.
