EnForce Risk Manager: Redefining Data Privacy & Compliance

Have you ever asked yourself if your organization has control over its data? Data breaches, privacy concerns, and growing e-discovery costs continue to evolve how organizations approach controlling their business data while balancing worker productivity. At the same time, the amount of data stored on electronic systems continues to grow at an exponential rate, making the task of controlling sensitive information embedded within this data more challenging.

EnForce™ Risk Manager is the only automated solution to proactively identify, categorize and remediate private or sensitive data across the enterprise. Our solution offers the deepest level of insight and control of electronic data across all endpoints, including structured and unstructured data repositories, from anywhere. This enables organizations to improve business intelligence, ensure compliance and mitigate many types of risks.

“E-Discovery Best Practices for IT” Webinar Highlights

Jason Pickens

IT teams are the unsung heroes of litigation, spending many hours searching for relevant electronically stored information (ESI), helping the legal team “herd cats” to ensure that custodians respond to litigation holds, and preparing massive files for both review and production phases. Having spent time with many legal and IT teams across North America and Canada, I’ve compiled a few best practices after some discussion with my recent webinar co-presenter and former colleague, Carl Wong, who’s an adjunct professor in forensic computing at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

#1 – Bring Preservation and Collection In-House

Lowering costs relative to both software and a streamlined collection process are big benefits, but not the only ones. No one understands your IT landscape better than you do, and it makes sense for you to be the drivers of a repeatable and defensible process that’s part of a total response plan. Bringing the oversight of the process in-house doesn’t mean your team has to do all the work, but rather that you should have control over the process for greater efficiency and lower risk.

CEIC 2014: Highlights of “The Intersection of Privacy, Security and E-Discovery” Session

Recent news stories have sparked a worldwide debate about the right to privacy for both individuals and businesses. As the European Union pushes for greater safeguards, tech giants like Google are struggling with the potential implications of the “right to be forgotten.” Here in the United States, several high-profile breaches raised the issue of consumers’ right to know when sensitive information about them has been accessed.

In their discussion at CEIC 2014, 451 Research Analyst and Counsel David Horrigan and Assistant U.S. Attorney Edward McAndrew highlighted several developments that could impact e-discovery and investigations. 

Announcing an Industry-first Integration between EnCase eDiscovery and Box for Defensible Cloud Collection

Box is the enterprise cloud content management platform of choice   

All of us on the EnCase eDiscovery team are excited to announce a new integration between EnCase® eDiscovery and Box, the enterprise cloud content management platform used by 97% of the Fortune 500. Enterprise IT teams have come to rely on Box for cloud storage capabilities that map to their information governance policies and processes. This makes Box the perfect choice for this industry-first integration with our complete e-discovery product, an integration that will let legal teams securely search, collect, and preserve electronically stored information (ESI) located on Box from within EnCase eDiscovery just as easily as with on-premise data.

Now Collect and Preserve Information Managed in Box as Readily as On-Premises Data

Whitney Bouck, the senior vice president and general manager of enterprise at Box, has said that many of their enterprise customers reside within highly regulated industries, so they need a way to meet e-discovery and compliance requirements in a way that does not compromise efficiency and user experience. This makes Box and EnCase eDiscovery ideally suited to offer IT and legal teams a scalable, reliable, and secure way to gain visibility of content stored in Box, to manage access to that content, and to control retention and dispensation.

ACC Annual Meeting 2013: EU Data Privacy and the Godmother of E-Discovery

John Blumenschein

I’m on a plane flying back from this year’s ACC (Association of Corporate Counsel) Annual Meeting in Los Angeles, which, as usual, delivered four days’ worth of excellent sessions and food for thought. The hottest topic by far was data privacy, especially in light of the NSA revelations this week.

Globalization and Data Privacy

Almost all of the panel sessions that I attended [e.g., on social media, government investigations, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA)] touched on the topic of privacy in one way or another. The primary driving force behind this topic’s heat factor, however, is the increasingly global nature of business today.

Data Privacy, Cross-Border E-Discovery, and the Hybrid Solution

Chris Kruse

You could call the United States the epicenter of litigation. It’s an unfortunate, but inescapable, reality that our markets and business cultures drive a preponderance of international business litigation, so much so that we’re the world leader by a mile. The challenge for European and Asian corporations lies in the fact that many have U.S. headquarters or do business with companies here, which is when e-discovery becomes complex due to their national, local, or other pertinent data-privacy laws.

There are dramatic variations in data-privacy laws and requirements across countries, domains, and jurisdictions. For example, in Germany the requirements for collecting employee e-mail and electronic documents within one company may be completely different than those for the company next door, as those requirements are determined by each corporation’s works council.
