kCura’s Relativity Fest 2012 was held this year at the historic Palmer House Hotel in Chicago, featuring education tracks, experience sharing and valuable networking time. CEO Andrew Sieja kicked off the sold-out event that attracted 525 attendees, initially focusing his keynote address on Relativity growth in both users and data under management. kCura has increased the number of Relativity end users to over 71,000 per month, representing 52% year-over-year growth.

Corporate legal departments and law firms that host and review data online bear a significant responsibility to ensure that personally identifiable information (PII) remains protected. According to the Social Security Administration, identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in America, and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) estimates approximately nine million Americans have their identities stolen each year. Most of these crimes rely heavily on a single piece of information - the Social Security number (SSN). As more and more information moves online, criminals have developed a variety of methods to steal information, and the majority of these lost or stolen SSNs are a result of database security breaches.

In response to multiple client inquiries about eDiscovery education and certification programs, eDJ Group ran a survey on the topic this past summer. The survey sought to understand the available eDiscovery and related information governance education, certification and training programs. What we found is that the eDiscovery education market is just beginning to form and that the programs available are deep and complex; far too deep for eDJ to cover each program in depth. Instead, we will share our findings throughout a series of articles in the hopes that data will help inform decisions and start fruitful conversations and debates.
Education and training are foundationalcontinue…

As a first year associate with the ink yet to dry on my diploma, I remember being introduced to the “concourse level” of our Rockefeller center office building. The other associates called it the dungeon, and I quickly learned why— it was the windowless basement of a 70-floor office building. Down in the dungeon I encountered the next 4 years of my life: about 1000 bankers boxes of paper and 500 disks of single page TIFFs with no load files. My task was to inventory this massive amount of data and “make sense of it all,” as no one knew what had been accumulated. The case started 22 years earliercontinue…

Resolving electronic discovery disputes via mediation is fast becoming a trend. When parties face hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars in potential e-discovery costs, they often find the cost of discovery is greater than the amount of money at risk in the case.
Resolving discovery disputes between lawyers is difficult enough, but it becomes even more challenging when you have to negotiate issues like search terms, methodologies and tools in the context of an ever-changing technical landscape. Like many lawyers, we deal with these issues daily in our federal and state practices. Over time, we

Most litigation and investigations involve some form of redaction. Rule 5.2 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure requires privacy protection for individuals named in party or non-party filings. Redactions are time consuming, labor intensive and error prone, but getting them right is important. Missed redactions have the potential to expose sensitive information, and they can also lead to sanctions.
Learn about Fios Redaction Assistant (FRA), a tool that Relativity users can use to automate and accelerate the redaction process while improving accuracy and consistency at the same time.
