Globanet™, a leading developer and reseller of archiving, compliance and eDiscovery solutions worldwide, hosts a series of successful webinars and lunch & learns with its partner, Symantec Corporation, as part of an ongoing campaign to help companies with their critical eDiscovery, Information Governance and Compliance needs. Globanet and Symantec have co-hosted 10 lunch & learns and 4 webinars this year to date and will continue to roll out the campaign until the end of the year. A more comprehensive list of the event locations is listed below and can also be found on the Globanet Events page.

According to Gartner Inc., Information Governance is defined as “a decision rights and accountability framework to ensure appropriate behavior in the valuation, creation, storage, use, archiving and deletion of data.” Electronic Discovery or ‘eDiscovery’ is the extension of discovery to include data in electronic format, commonly referred to as Electronically Stored Information or ‘ESI’. The increasing amount of litigation, regulatory investigations, growing concern over data security breaches and increased use of social media and mobile sources as a method of communication makes it paramount for businesses to establish a strong Information Governance and eDiscovery plan.

Each event opened up with a general discussion on Information Governance. A recurring theme addressed was the need to improve inter-departmental communication through social media and other outlets and how new risks and challenges should be properly be mitigated. Other key topics focused on the creation of effective Information Governance policies and processes, followed by information on technology solutions that support a comprehensive data management program.

The conversations around eDiscovery were tackled head-on, starting with an introduction in the context of today’s Big Data age. From there, applicable eDiscovery laws were explored through a discussion of five central themes, seen in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) and the proposed FRCP changes. The duty to preserve digital data was examined to determine when companies need to start preserving data; and conversely, when they may resume normal retention policies. Relevant state and local rules were presented with valuable insights and tips. The eDiscovery portion concluded with ‘boots on the ground’ best practices across the entire eDiscovery lifecycle from identification, preservation and legal hold to production, following the well recognized and respected Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) framework. Attendees were able to take away lessons that could be utilized to improve their day-to-day and organizational resources.

Globanet and Symantec held successful lunch & learns in cities across the United States including New York, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Boston, Chicago, Houston, Baltimore, Denver, Philadelphia, and Jersey City. This lunch & learn series is set to continue through the rest of 2014. Globanet and Symantec have 6 more lunch & learns planned between October and December in the San Francisco Bay area, Orange County area, Denver, Charlotte, Raleigh, and Atlanta. The next few will be hosted in Charlotte, Raleigh, Atlanta, Denver and Los Angeles.

Globanet will also be exhibiting at Symantec’s eDiscovery in Government Education (EDGE) Summit in Washington D.C., one of the largest annual conferences focused on eDiscovery and Information Governance. Both companies are also hosting an exclusive eDiscovery Cruise for customers on October 2nd in New York City. Recent Symantec and Globanet webinars include: Federal Records Compliance, Data Archiving Best Practices and Trends, as well as Managing Big Data in Health Care, which you can find on the Resources section of the Globanet website.
