Is your organization prepared to meet its new eDiscovery obligations?

In today’s legal environment, companies are plagued by compliance legislation, and regulations that require the retention and protection of company records - none more so than organizations in the heavily regulated Financial Service Industry. The evolution of a borderless world economy has made commercial litigation increasingly complex and high-risk. Financial institutions now face unprecedented legal challenges, where they can be hauled into almost any court, at any time.

Recent surveys show, contradictory to common belief, poor records management, poor litigation holds procedures and lacking email retention strategies in place within the financial service industry.

It is widely accepted that every major corporation needs a record retention strategy in place and given the rapid increase in importance of electronic evidence, it’s imperative to stay up-to-date with the latest strategic trends and new directions for electronic discovery.

IQPC’s eDiscovery for Financial Services conference offers best practices for putting in place policies, procedures and technology that aid in records management, production of data and the review process. All so that you are prepared next time you get involved in costly e-discovery requests.

Highlights of this comprehensive program include:

  • Best Practices for Lowering Costs from leading Banks and Finance Companies – that have actually worked!
  • Building Teams that successfully incorporate IT, Legal and Records Management
  • Mastering the intersection of Law and Technology
  • Best Practices for Managing the High Volume of Data
  • Building the Right Team to handle Complex Problems
  • Best Practices for Managing the Review Process
  • How to Manage Specific Data Authentication Issues
  • Methods for Addressing Financial Transactions involving Sensitive and Non-Public Information
  • Updates on Global E-Discovery and Cross-Border Issues

Our Panel Discussions will be addressed by CIO’s, IT Security, In-House Counsel and Records Managers. This complete overview of the entire eDiscovery process will provide insights from every angle - so make sure you bring your entire team!
