Exterro E-Discovery Webcasts to Address New Developments in International and U.S. Data Privacy Laws

Two Upcoming Webcasts to Explore Pending Changes to Cross-Border Regulations and the Impact of U.S. Data Privacy Laws on E-Discovery Practices

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - Mar 6, 2012) - Exterro®, the leading provider of workflow-driven e-discovery software, is hosting two new webcasts focused on e-discovery and data privacy on March 15, 2012, and April 12, 2012. The webcasts will feature prominent attorneys and legal experts who will explore developments in both cross-border regulations and the impact of U.S. privacy laws on e-discovery processes as follows:

  • Vie Privée, Privacidad, Privatsphäre, Privacy: EU Privacy Updates and Other Developments
    March 12, 2012 - 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT

    Cross-border e-discovery regulations continue to grow in complexity. New developments, such as the European Union Data Privacy Regulation, the recent ABA Resolution on international data privacy and The Sedona® International Principles on Discovery, Disclosure and Data Protection, are adding more uncertainty for U.S. legal teams trying to comply with and enforce defensible preservation and collection protocols. The webcast will provide practical advice on what legal teams can do to balance highly enforced U.S. court requirements with more stringent foreign privacy laws that grant greater protections in regards to the collection or preservation of personal data.

  • U.S. Privacy Laws & E-Discovery: Navigating a Brave New World
    April 12, 2012 - 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT

    In the age of the Internet, social media and other sophisticated forms of technological communication, the lines have been blurred as to what constitutes private information, adding a new challenge in managing electronically stored information (ESI). Typically thought of as an international e-discovery issue, this is one of the critical challenges lawyers face -- understanding what can and cannot be produced in U.S. courts. This webcast will explore the challenges of managing e-discovery while accounting for U.S. privacy laws and offer best practices for responding to e-discovery requests involving potentially privileged data, including accessing ESI on social media sites.

"Recent developments in international discovery and data protection rules could impact an increasing number of cases in the coming years, yet they aren't well understood by many legal teams. Exterro's webcasts come at an especially advantageous time, and I look forward to addressing these complex topics," said Ken Rashbaum, attorney and cross-border e-discovery expert and presenter with James Daley on Exterro's European Union (E.U.) data privacy webcast on March 12. Both Rashbaum and Daley are also the co-editors-in-chief of The Sedona Framework For Analysis of Cross-Border Discovery Conflicts: A Practical Guide To Navigating The Competing Currents Of International Data Privacy And Discovery.
