Data Privacy Considerations When Conducting E-Discovery

Original Broadcast Date: May 9, 2013

Data privacy professionals focus on privacy risks and controls in an organization’s day-to-day business operations, but often less thought is given to privacy risks in electronic discovery. Data collected for litigation frequently falls into a “black hole”: It is sent to outside counsel or e-discovery vendors without considering the organization’s ongoing data privacy obligations. Following are the key risks associated with e-discovery:
•    Data may be lost in transfer
•    Outside counsel or e-discovery vendors may not employ sufficient security measures
•    Contracts with e-discovery vendors may not contain appropriate privacy protections
•    Data located outside the U.S. may be subject to more rigorous privacy regulation
Join our expert panel to discuss legal and practical strategies for ensuring that data privacy obligations are met for your organization, even in the face of liberal U.S. e-discovery processes.
