““People outside of the e-discovery bubble have little experience with the very specific language and terminology used in the world of legal technology, so, our role is to break down these barriers and level the playing field,” said Quin Gregor, CEO at SIGINT Software and LTPI board member who worked on both projects.”

“What will 2017 bring us that connects these dots in cyberspace? Only time will tell. Nevertheless, here are the top 10 cybersecurity blog posts, based on metrics, from 2016 — counting down backward from 10 to one.”

“In these technology-driven times, early case assessment (ECA) has become something of an afterthought, yet with e-discovery costs skyrocketing alongside data proliferation, the practice may soon reinstate its place in the practice of law.”
Technology advances in both law and the wider world will mean greater reliance on analytics in legal technology.

“Hackers have morphed from the lone wolf wearing a hoodie and sitting behind a computer — to a garden variety of cyber intruders and perpetrators wearing anything from T-shirts and flip-flops, to dark suits and wing-tips, to military garb, according to Cybersecurity Ventures' annual cybercrime report.”

“The Professional Ethics Committee for the State Bar of Texas recently concluded that a lawyer must take “reasonable measures” to avoid transmitting metadata containing a client’s confidential information to persons to whom such confidential information shouldn’t be disclosed.”

“The problem with the defendants’ argument, McLaren wrote, is that they fail to cite any authority which “suggests or implies” that collecting and interpreting metadata relating to computer operation is acceptable for diagnosing the operator’s possible brain damage, “regardless of the type of expert involved.””

“Inevitably, line-of-business users will ask the admins to restore access to an old tape. But effectively responding to such requests can get complicated, especially when admins aren't able to quickly identify the specific tape they need due to a lack of documented knowledge about what the various tapes contain.”
Many companies store hundreds of legacy data tapes, and IT admins often need three backup solutions—and different versions of each—to service various locations.

“I think 2017 is more likely to be the year of legal data analytics and data science than it is to be the year of artificial intelligence (AI). AI makes headlines daily, both in legal and mainstream media. Yet outside of e-discovery document review and due diligence for corporate transactions, its impact remains limited. In contrast, data science and data analysis has value across both law practice and firm business operations today.”

“During a recent review of one of my colleagues, he noted that many of his adversaries don’t know how to handle ediscovery. And he wasn’t referencing solo attorneys two years out of law school. He was talking about partners at the so-called elite firms who had no idea what “native format” meant.”
Lawyers like to think we are de Tocqueville’s priesthood of America -- and we are, but we still need to know and address the nitty-gritty.

“On average, an American office worker sends and receives roughly 120 emails per day, a number that grows with each passing year. The ubiquity and utility of email has turned it into a fine-grained record of our day-to-day lives, rich with mundane and potentially embarrassing details, stored in a perpetual archive, accessible from anywhere on earth and protected, in some cases, by nothing more than a single password.”
After a maker of surveillance software was hacked, its leaked documents shed light on a shadowy global industry that has turned email theft into a terrifying — and lucrative — political weapon.

“With less than 18 months to go until implementation, many of them remain entirely unprepared. More than half (54 percent) of organisations have failed to commence any kind of preparation to meet even the minimum standards of GDPR, according to recent research by information management company Veritas.”
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will apply throughout the EU in 18 months. Here’s what your business needs to know.
