Exterro and Hitachi Data Systems to Present Webcast on Information Governance and E-Discovery

Joint Webcast to Provide Best Practices for Aligning Information Governance (IG) and E-Discovery Requirements Through Technology Integration

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - May 2, 2012) - Exterro, Inc., the leading provider of workflow-driven e-discovery software, and Hitachi Data Systems today announced a joint webcast that will address the growing intersection of information governance (IG) and e-discovery. The webcast, "E-Discovery and Information Governance: Assessing needs and aligning priorities," will air on May 16, 2012, and will examine the challenges IT and legal teams face by the growing volumes of data being stored in silos, particularly during the legal process.

According to a recent article by e-discovery analyst Barry Murphy of the eDJ Group, "As electronic data grows exponentially, managing the risk that information poses is harder and harder." Attorney Dennis Kiker, partner at LeClair Ryan, and Hitachi Data Systems experts Marcelline Saunders, senior product manager, and Jonathan Preston, business development manager, will directly discuss this issue and present best practices for:

  • Identifying and managing key data sources, including proactively archiving, de-duplicating and indexing information
  • Translating e-discovery and regulatory realities into effective IG policies that reflect organizational needs
  • Integrating technologies for a more streamlined IG/e-discovery process

Registration for this complimentary webcast, airing on May 16 at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT is available on Exterro's website at Joe Aakre, Exterro's e-discovery solutions consultant, will serve as moderator for the webcast.
