ACEDS Starts Today! (Sort Of): eDiscovery Trends

As we noted in our “pre-game” look at the ACEDS conference, today is the first day of the conference!  Well, tomorrow is actually the first day of the conference, but today ACEDS will be offering three pre-conference seminars that should enable attendees identify better ways to address their cybersecurity needs, learn blogging tips and tricks from experienced bloggers (including me) and prepare for the CEDS exam.

These full day seminars should have something for everybody.  They are:

Pre-Conference CEDS Live Exam Prep Seminar

The Pre-Conference CEDS Live Exam Prep Seminar is the ultimate tool to teach you crucial knowledge of the e-discovery process and better prepare you for the Certified E-Discovery Specialist Certification exam. Once completed, you will be more prepared to become a CEDS and control costs and minimize risks associated with e-discovery. Subjects covered span a wide range of e-discovery knowledge: pre-litigation issues, sources of ESI, cost; budgeting, review methods and more.  Note: This event includes lunch on-site.

Instructor: Helen Bergman Moure, CEDS – Principal, Lex Aperta.  Rate: $495.

Cyber Security for Legal Professionals

The Cyber Security for Legal Professionals pre-conference seminar brings together global experts from government, industry, law firms and service providers to discuss and learn about pressing security issues with a special emphasis on e-discovery, evidence and risk mitigation. There will be a live ethical hacking/dark web demonstration, a discussion of the FTC’s trend forward enforcement around security and the Sedona Conference™ white paper on Security, what to expect when reporting to or being informed by the FBI about a breach, cyberinsuance and protocols for retaining evidence while ameliorating live threats.  A certificate of attendance will be given to attendees, and CLE will be applied for in NY, PA and CA.  Non-Member Price: $695, Member Price: $595, Government Price: $395.

Speakers: David Shonka, acting General Counsel for the FTC; Roy Zur, CEO of Cybint; SSA Jay Kramer, NYO Cyber Division; Courtney Lancaster, Fidelis Cybersecurity and Baltimore Chapter Lead for the Women’s Society of Cyber Jujitsu.

Law Student Blogger/Social Invitational

The Law Student Blogger/Social Invitational pre-conference seminar brings together global blogging and social participants from the eDiscovery and Legal Technology community with law students forward thinking enough to create and share their knowledge via online media while still in school. While our hosts Ari Kaplan, Rob Robinson, Doug Austin and Robin Thompson are prolific and accomplished online professionals, we expect to learn just as much from our law student attendees as our hosts. Expect a lively discussion, with tips on tools, methodologies and sources to contribute to justice, build a brand, maximize networks and to attract followers and potential employers.  Law Student Price: $100, Member Price: $295, Non-Member Price: $595.

Speakers: Ari Kaplan, Principal, Ari Kaplan Advisors; Rob Robinson, Managing Director, Complex Discovery; Doug Austin, Editor, eDiscovery Daily; Robin Athlyn Thompson, Vice President, Marketing, BIA.
