  • Agenda

    • 8:00 a.m. Registration and Breakfast
    • 9:00 a.m. Become the Envy of Everyone with Systemized Ediscovery Project Management
      Ediscovery is often treated as a reactive activity without defined, repeatable processes, which results in missed deadlines, lost evidence and miscommunications that lead to wasted time, increased internal costs and potential legal sanctions. With the rising costs of litigation, legal teams must start treating ediscovery as a business process. Business process management, a discipline traditionally applied to non-legal functions, offers legal professionals a remarkable opportunity to improve project outcomes and become the envy of your department. Join ediscovery experts who will provide their perspectives on how to effectively transform ediscovery into a business process. Issues to be addressed include the most frequent causes of ediscovery mistakes and overruns, project management principles that can be used by all legal professionals, and technology advancements for systemizing ediscovery as a repeatable process. #ILTA #OLS01
    • 10:00 a.m. Break and Vendor Table Visits
    • 10:30 a.m. How to “Like” Social Media in Ediscovery
      Social media tools are everywhere. These outlets are the new way we communicate in our business and personal lives. However, with every post, Tweet, like and comment, we leave a digital trail, and these new electronically stored information (ESI) repositories are fair game in litigation and ediscovery. How do you preserve, collect, process, review and produce this specialized data in a way that meets industry best practices and federal guidelines? Let’s look at the current landscape of social media in the ediscovery life cycle and how you can be prepared to move information from identification to production. Also learn about recent changes to the Federal Rule of Civil Procedure’s (FRCP) Rule 37 and their effect on social media. #ILTA #OLS02
    • 11:30 a.m. Lunch and Vendor Table Visits
    • 12:00 p.m. Keynote: Cyber Threats, Working with the FBI, and Best Practices for Managing a Data Breach
      Companies and law firms are increasingly being targeted and compromised by a variety of cyber attacks, and preparing for the inevitable attempt or breach involves an understanding of the cyber actors, the response procedures of law enforcement, and how a company can best address an incident at all levels in the organization. Presented by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), this keynote will explore the different motivations and techniques of the suspects behind the keyboard; recurring themes across criminal and national security intelligence; and how the FBI is working with the private sector to combat this threat through prevention, outreach and investigations. Also gain general guidance on breach preparedness (such as vendor negotiations and standard contract clauses) and on the common issues encountered during the breach response stage from outside counsel perspective. #ILTA #OLSKEY
    • 1:30 p.m. Vendor Door Prize Drawing 
    • 1:45 p.m. A Deep Dive into Analytics
      Everyone says you need to utilize your data, but how do you leverage analytics for document review and/or business intelligence? Our speaker is taking a deep dive into analytics and will share definitions, applications and use cases. #ILTA #OLS03
    • 2:45 p.m. Break
    • 3:00 p.m. Advanced Predictive Coding
      Are you ready to dive into the significant issues associated with predictive coding and technology-assisted review (TAR)? A panel of predictive coding veterans will focus on real-world advanced tactics used when leveraging predictive coding and other search technologies to retrieve and categorize documents. They will discuss how to assess the needs of your case and use predictive coding metrics to get you where you need to go; what you need to understand about training and deploying reviewers when using predictive coding; why learning methods, document training systems and sampling protocols are critical for an effective predictive coding process; and which metrics are best when evaluating predictive coding effectiveness. You will walk away knowing best practices for applying TAR, including what types of cases lend themselves best to this type of technology and what to expect as the technology continues to advance in the next five to 10 years. #ILTA #OLS04
    • 4:00 p.m. Closing Comments 
    • 5:00-7:00 p.m. Offsite Networking Social at Mezzo, which is less than a mile from the conference venue (sponsored by Profile Discovery)
