Technology has made the process of identifying and redacting PII easier than it has ever been.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 15, 2016
kCura, developers of the e-discovery software Relativity, recently announced an upcoming webinar, “How to Prevent the Disclosure of PII.” The webinar will be held Thursday, February 18 at 11:00 a.m. CST with panelists Hunter McMahon from Altep, Scott Monaghan from Milyli, and Aileen Tien from kCura.
In the webinar, presenters will describe how e-discovery search methodologies and technology can help minimize the risk of disclosing PII when producing documents for litigation or in compliance with regulatory requests.
”While review for relevancy is a standard part of the discovery workflow, reviewing for PII is often not,” says McMahon. “Unfortunately, however, PII is often included in discovery data collections. In-house counsel today must assume that there is sensitive information in any corpus of documents to be produced, and it is in their best interests to put certain safeguards in place to prevent its disclosure.”
To better prepare attorneys, compliance officers, and information security professionals responsible for ensuring the protection of PII, the webinar will cover:
- The types of PII that may be hidden in an organization’s data
- What can go wrong, what has gone wrong, and how to prevent it
- How to be both thorough and cost-conscious when protecting sensitive information
“Technology has made the process of identifying and redacting PII easier than it has ever been,” says Tien. “When PII is known or assumed to be present, there are some pretty simple steps in-house and outside counsel can take to systematically identify potential instances of PII.”
Adds Monaghan: “Attorneys no longer have to look for individual instances of PII—they can search for patterns of information, such as social security numbers, and automatically redact them.”
