Clutch Group at 2015 Electronic Discovery Institute Summit

We assembled a fantastic group of panelists to discuss the issues presented by surveillance and what companies can do to mitigate these.

Clutch Group, an organization dedicated to helping companies tackle complex legal, risk and compliance issues, is a Diamond Ambassador at the 2015 Electronic Discovery Institute (EDI) Leadership Summit in New Orleans, Louisiana from the 14th-16th of October.

The EDI Leadership Summit, of which Clutch has been a multi-year supporter, advances corporate and government decision-makers’ understanding of current legal technology issues through collaborative roundtables, panel discussions, and workshops. Key issues being discussed at this year’s summit include cybersecurity, data remediation and retention, employee monitoring, and global eDiscovery management.

Brandon Daniels, Clutch Group President, moderated a panel discussion titled “Data Surveillance: Dealing with Privacy, Complex Data & Company Culture” during the seminar. The panel, as set out by EDI, examined “how corporate data surveillance is affecting company culture and what companies can do to implement proper compliance monitoring programs that are transparent, measured, and able to meet global regulatory demands.”

“Data surveillance and monitoring is a rapidly evolving component of the compliance arena,” Mr. Daniels said. “As companies move to integrate more widespread surveillance systems into their compliance programs, they will wrestle with technical, logistical, legal and moral challenges. We assembled a fantastic group of panelists to discuss the issues presented by surveillance and what companies can do to mitigate these.”

Mr. Daniels was joined by several panelists, including Jamie Brown, Executive Director & Global eDiscovery Counsel at UBS, Marla Bergman, Vice President and Associate General Counsel at Goldman Sachs, Hilary Lane, Senior Vice President of Litigation & Information Governance at NBC Universal, Allan Hsu, Director of eDiscovery & Litigation at Fannie Mae, and Glenn Melcher, Special Counsel for eDiscovery at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).

This year, the EDI Summit coincides with GICLI’s – the Government Investigations and Civil Litigation Institute – first annual meeting. GICLI, which is focused on educating the legal world in response to a surge in regulatory enforcement activities and related civil litigation, arranged a panel on “Managing a High Profile Bet-The-Farm Investigation.” Varun Mehta, Vice President of Legal & Compliance Solutions at Clutch, participated in the panel.
