E-Discovery Ethics and Practice: In Defense of Defensible Collection of ESI
In this session we will address the importance of having a sound, documented and repeatable process for the collection of ESI from the potential witnesses we call custodians of ESI. We will discuss where to look for potentially responsive ESI, how to make sure that when you collect you do not risk spoliation of the data, and what impact a sound collection process can have on the authentication and therefore usability of ESI as evidence. Within the discussion we will discuss obligations of attorney competence in understanding clients’ electronic data systems, duty to supervise collection and not leave it to the custodian, the downstream duties of disclosure to and candor with the court and opposing counsel, the obligation to the client to negotiate scope of discovery from a position of knowledge and strength and understanding of cost, and the impact of a sound collection on the integrity of the data in the exchange of discovery materials.

Reducing the Risk of Cyber Attacks by Complying with CIS 20
The Center for Internet Security’s Critical Security Controls (CIS Controls) are a concise, prioritized set of 20 cyber practices created to stop today’s most pervasive and dangerous cyberattacks. The CIS Controls are developed, refined, and validated by a community of leading experts from around the world. Law firms that apply just the first five CIS Controls can reduce their risk of cyberattack by around 85 percent. Implementing all 20 CIS Controls increases the risk reduction to around 94 percent. This session will provide a framework of achievable goals and an understanding of cybersecurity best practices for law firms. Attorneys in attendance will leave this training with a knowledge and reference material of the CIS Controls.
