One of the most enjoyable parts of last year’s LegalTech New York was the information governance track run by Nuix on the closing day. I was a participant in an IG panel led by Julie Colgan of Nuix which, as is Julie’s style, was run with just the right degree of preparation – enough to give it a structure but with enough left open to see where we went with it and what emerged from the (not necessarily identical) positions taken by the panel.
Nuix is running the same track again this year with the theme Information Governance Challenges. Session 1 is called What Happened to the US/EU Safe Harbor? The Tension Between Privacy and Business Efficiency for Multinational Corporations. Robert Brownstone of Fenwick & West is the moderator; I am one of the panellists along with Amie Taal of Deutsche bank, Kenneth Rashbaum of Barton LLP and Rich Vestuto of Deloitte.
The EU’s grace period for data transfers purportedly made under the Safe Harbour regime will have expired four days earlier, making this a very topical panel.
Session 2 is called Information Governance and the updated FRCP: speed, proportionality, preservation and ethical challenges. Again, this subject is made topical by recent events, in this case the newly-enforced Rules.
Session 3 moves us into incident readiness with a session called The role of Information Governance in mitigating breach exposure. I don’t need to explain why this is currently an important subject.
I recommend all these topics, and not just because I am participating. The sessions are run jointly by Nuix and ARMA International, and you will find more information about them here.
