Epiq talk on 15 July to Hong Kong Academy of Law about handling digital data

Epiq_logo_200I have only just seen this the notice about a talk to be given tomorrow, 15 July, to the Hong Kong Academy of Law by Epiq about handling digital data with secure and forensically sound practices.

The Hong Kong Academy of Law provides practical legal information across a wide range of topics for lawyers. I took part in one of its lectures a few years ago on eDiscovery rules and practices.

This week’s course will introduce practitioners to common challenges and solutions in handling data securely and in a forensically sound way. The course will cover the following points:

  • Overview of digital forensics and eDiscovery
  • Problematic data types
  • Risks of mobile devices and social media
  • When and how data breach arises
  • Impact of data breach
  • Information security best practices
  • Data integrity and chain of custody
  • Handling data securely and defensibly
  • Preservation
  • Transport/export
  • Hosting
  • Disposal

The speakers are Jay Chong and Sebastian Ko of Epiq. I interviewed Sebastian Ko when I was last in Hong Kong when he talked about the issues faced by those undertaking document review in the Asia-Pacific region, and in particular in China. You can find that interview here.
