The Secrets to Proactive eDiscovery: How to Reduce Costs and Mitigate Risk
Rockville, MD (PRWEB) March 10, 2009
FileTek, Inc., a pioneer developer of high-volume data management and information governance solutions, today announced that it will collaborate with Harris Beach PLLC, a legal and professional services firm, to present the educational, thought leadership eSeminar, "The Secrets to Proactive eDiscovery: How to Reduce Costs and Mitigate Risk," on March 31, 2009, at 10:00 AM PDT/1:00 PM EDT. The eSeminar will be hosted by CT Summation, a premier provider of litigation support and eDiscovery solutions. The intended audience consists of legal, compliance and IT professionals who support the eDiscovery process. Participants can register at http://www.ctsummation.com/News/eseminars.aspx. Eligible members of the State Bar of California will receive one hour of continuing legal education (MCLE) credit.
In an effort to comply with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, organizations are scrambling to create new strategies and best practices for proactive solutions supporting the proper management, classification, and preservation of electronically stored content across the enterprise. In addition to rising eDiscovery costs, failure to implement a reasonable, repeatable, and defensible process is punishable by court-ordered sanctions, severe fines, and adverse rulings that can deter business forecasts and foil financial success.
The "Secrets to Proactive eDiscovery" will address these and other high-profile issues regarding the legal requirement to rapidly deliver pertinent and discoverable data, including the reduction of associated time and cost.
Guest speakers Michael Smith, General Manager of the Trusted Edge Products Group at FileTek, and Alan Winchester, Esq., leader of the e-info(SM) Electronic Information Counseling and Management Team at Harris Beach, join moderator Kate Paslin, Esq., consulting attorney for CT Summation in San Francisco, for the presentation and panel discussion. The session will conclude with an opportunity for audience participation in a question and answer forum.
