Join us on Monday, February 11, 2013 at 12:00pm EST to discuss the science behind predictive coding, as well as provide guidelines for ensuring requesting parties receive the documents to which they are entitled. Savvy litigants should insist on the use of predictive coding as the most accurate and comprehensive method for identifying responsive documents.
Document productions in most litigations do not contain all of the relevant documents to which the requesting parties are entitled and often include many irrelevant documents. These inaccurate production populations are largely due to the combination of keyword culling and manual review that firms typically employ.
While some have recognized the benefit of “predictive coding,” the task of applying computers to replace large-scale human review is complicated and requires a sophisticated solution. There are significant differences between the technologies available today, and between the various experts available to guide their proper use. In order to ensure a truly responsive production, it is essential that producing parties are utilizing a high quality predictive coding technology and process.
This session will discuss the science behind predictive coding, as well as provide guidelines for ensuring requesting parties receive the documents to which they are entitled. Savvy litigants should insist on the use of predictive coding as the most accurate and comprehensive method for identifying responsive documents.

Many e-discovery and data security problems arise because of a lack of proper information governance within an organization. Companies are not proactively managing the growing volume of data they are creating and archiving, which is often targeted by plaintiffs' attorneys during litigation. Furthermore, companies’ proprietary and trade secret information is left exposed to data security and privacy breaches by hackers, foreign governments, and other entities. Having strong information governance policies and a technology to enforce them can mitigate these risks and liabilities. Moreover, using predictive coding capabilities can dramatically increase the efficiency and effectiveness with which an organization can effectuate those policies.

All companies have a baseline of security, which typically includes firewalls, proxy servers, intrusion detection, data loss prevention, spam filtering, and anti-virus. However, even prominent organizations that spend huge budgets on data security and have significantly more than baseline protections still lose massive volumes of data.
Cyber security is only as strong as its weakest link: You. Rational's Chief Solution Officer, Mike McCutcheon, will explore the end user’s role in cyber security and the need to mitigate that risk with technology that allows organizations to be more content aware. Automated, content-based classification of organizational data enhances cyber security protections by providing definitive answers to the troubling questions that arise following a data breach: “what data did we lose?” and “what is our exposure?” Moreover, a content aware organization can proactively defend against cyber security threats by moving sensitive data to the most secure storage locations.
The 18th New York State Cyber Security Conference will take place June 2 - 3 in Albany's Empire State Plaza. Please register here.
