Managing Sensitive Data in Discovery: Strategies and Tools for Avoiding Data Disasters
Organizations struggle to adequately protect their private and confidential information in the ordinary course of business. When sensitive data moves out of its usual business function, and into
the realm of discovery in legal matters, the information risks escalate substantially. This presentation will offer some successful strategies and best practices for attorneys and legal professionals to mitigate those risks. We’ll discuss—
- Setting expectations for law firms and other legal providers handling sensitive data
- Searching large data sets to effectively identify various types of sensitive information
- Establishing workflows that incorporate robust protections for sensitive data
- Protecting information turned over to opposing parties and the court
