PR185989 - Conquering Your Productions: Take Charge Like a Boss! Let’s face it: Productions can be incredibly painful. Time is rarely on your side, there’s a low tolerance for error, and surprises pop up out of nowhere causing all kinds of challenges. It hurts! But it doesn’t have to be like this. With a little early planning and preparation, you can roll out productions with ease and save time (and your sanity).

The key is to structure your review with productions in mind. In this session, we’ll go over what you need to know at the onset of a project, how to drive a focused and targeted review workflow, as well as the efficiencies gained through creating a series of dynamic searches meant to complement each other in driving review, imaging, and production needs. We’ll also examine how Analytics, specifically email threading and near-duplicate identification, can enhance QC and minimize inconsistencies.

Throughout the presentation, based on an example review and production protocol, we’ll construct the ultimate set of saved searches to identify the production-ready population as well as those sets of documents that need additional attention so you’ll always know exactly where you stand.

PR251236 - Death of the In/Out Pricing Model A little over ten years ago the adoption of what is commonly referred to as the "in/out" pricing model was born. In essence, service providers would charge a one-time per gigabyte rate for ingesting and indexing containerized source data (the "in"), apply search terms, then publish all remaining data to a review workspace. The volume of data that survived search term culling would carry another one-time per gigabyte processing charge (the "out"). Recent advancements in e-discovery software combined with new rules have rendered this pricing model, and disjointed workflow, obsolete. However, many buyers are still clinging to the status quo. This presentation takes a 30,000-foot view at how and why the old pricing model came about, then presents a step-by-step guide through a real-world scenario leveraging the latest technology with a more streamlined approach. The end result is a data discovery lifecycle that provides greater transparency, reduces turnaround time, and minimizes opportunity for human error—all while reducing overall discovery spend. 1 Hour Lecture Kris Wasserman - Regional Vice President, Special Counsel/D4
PR239074 - Defend the (Virtual) Castle! Real-World Data Security Practices for Relativity Relativity users demand fast, scalable, readily available systems that perform 24/7.

In this session, we’ll discuss the top priorities for data security, the shortcomings of “common” security implementations, and performance pitfalls (and fixes). You'll walk away with proven best practices that minimize degradation, errors, and downtime. 1 Hour Lecture George Nedwick - CEO, George Jon

PR188992 - Don’t Bend Your Projects To Fit The Technology: Develop Analytics Solutions That Match Your Team and Your Data Do you suffer from analytics envy? Are you often feeling like you’re the only one not using Assisted Review, email threading, near-duplicate identification, and other analytics tools for review? Don’t worry. You’re closer to using those tools on many of your cases than you think. In this session, we’ll discuss lessons learned regarding common obstacles to implementation, the wide variety of tools available to analytics practitioners, and how those tools can be combined and “gamified” to fit each unique data set and supercharge your document review.

In the latter part of our session, we’ll focus on implementing “invisible” analytics solutions that pay big dividends on everyday cases with minimal disruption to managed review and counsel teams. We’ll walk through a number of case studies featuring layered analytics approaches and also share some simple but highly effective workflow tips and tricks for sample-based assisted review that make defensible data exclusion easy (that's right, we said EASY).

PD188006 - e-Discovery Certifications: Why, Which, and in What Order The evolution of the legal industry over the next decade will usher in a new and hyper-focused valuation of functional domain certification that was once only granted to a traditional three-year JD.

These professionals are specializing in an area of expertise and validating that knowledge with certification(s) such as the CIPP US/EU for privacy, the GLEG or CISSP for security, or CEDS for those wanting to specialize in e-discovery and more.

During this panel discussion, you'll get a better understanding of the legal certification ecosystem for non-software specific accreditation. Panelists will discuss Relativity certifications—which overlap many functional domain certifications with elements of e-discovery project management, information governance, security, privacy, and analytics—and also provide potential career mapping pathways to help you expand and diversify your areas of expertise.
