Patrick Oot of the Electronic Discovery Institute and the SEC is interviewed by Jim Vint of Navigant in a podcast which anticipates some of the subjects which will come up at IQPC’s London Summit between 14 and 16 May
The list of speakers for IQPC’s 7th Annual Information Governance and eDisclosure Summit is pretty good bait on its own, even without looking at the agendas for the Pre-Conference Workshops, Day 1 and Day 2. Even if you do not know the names of the individuals (and you will certainly know some of them) the job titles and the company names make it clear that you will be getting ideas and recommendations from the top.
IQPC has recorded some podcasts in which speakers talk about their subjects. Although these are obviously intended as trailers for the conference sessions, they serve also as useful sources of information in their own right – I interviewed Professor Dominic Regan, for example, and what he said formed the basis for an article which I called Professor Dominic Regan on why the Jackson Reforms mean the biggest ever upheaval for UK litigation.
In another of these broadcasts, called Insights into eDiscovery of Structured Data Jim Vint, Managing Director at Navigant, interviews Patrick Oot, co-founder and General Counsel of the Electronic Discovery Institute and Special Counsel, Electronic Discovery, at the US Securities and Exchange Commission. Jim Vint, as I know from his days at FTI Technology, has a specialist interest in structured data, and it is unsurprising that this is what he invites Patrick Oot to talk about.
The subjects range from the accessibility of cloud data – and in particular, its accessibility by government – and the particular problems which arise when dealing with foreign jurisdictions with data protection and privacy laws or with sector-specific inhibitions on access to data such as banking secrecy laws.
You do not need to fill in any registration forms to listen to this podcast if you link to it from here. You will find it an interesting and accessible way of catching the flavour of one of the many subjects on which Patrick Oot is eloquent. He is doing more than one session at the conference itself, including a Q&A on SEC Data Breach Notification and taking part in a panel on how social media is redefining eDisclosure.
Jim Vint is speaking at a session on how to get to critical evidence in financial systems, HR systems and other databases.
This conference is usually extremely good, and not merely because of its scale. Anyone with an interest in information governance and in eDisclosure / eDiscovery, whether within a company or at a law firm, will get value from time spent here.
