Reston, VA (PRWEB) July 10, 2013
Join iCONECT Development LLC, technology leaders who reach beyond the status quo with an intuitive and flexible document review platform that works the way you think, for “ePocalypse Now: The 24/7 Work Week, Social Media and The Cloud" on Wednesday, July 17th at 1:00pm EDT. Hosted by Thomas Barnett, Esq., noted eDiscovery expert, this educational webinar will examine how technology is changing our communication, our work and, really, our lives, tracking almost everything we say and do. Tweeting, texting, IMing, and Facebooking aren’t simply forms of communication; they create potential evidence. This thundercloud of comingled personal and work data, on mixed-use devices and often third-party controlled, is COMING SOON to a litigation near you. Are you ready?
The amount of data in the world is exploding at an unprecedented rate, creating a tidal wave of potentially discoverable information. Attorneys, legal professionals and their clients must not only understand the wave of data heading their way but what can be done to avoid being overwhelmed. Join us on July 17th as we examine relevant issues, including the following:
- Much of this data explosion consists of comingled business and personal information due to social media and portable devices
- As much as 85% of this data is owned and controlled by the corporate enterprise
- Current eDiscovery technology and practices address only a minute fraction of this data even though legal obligations require that it be considered, if relevant
- Most current approaches to analyzing data are based on technology that is 5-, 10-, or 20-years-old or older
- Current innovation in technology is creating far more efficient means of making this challenge manageable than that traditionally used in litigation support
