Experienced attorneys teach how to secure, collect and manage electronic data
Rochester, NY -- Registration is now open for the Upstate NY EDiscovery Summit 2012, which will be held Tuesday, March 20, at Mario’s Italian Restaurant on Monroe Avenue in Rochester. EDiscovery is the exchange of information in electronic format (also referred to as electronically stored information) for litigation purposes. The Summit will explain what happens to data once it leaves the security of a company firewall, and then discuss in detail how to properly manage and maintain electronic data -- knowledge that is crucial to corporate and personal security in today’s world of electronic communications. Attendees will learn how to properly manage the EDiscovery lifecycle, be introduced to smart methodologies and processes, and understand the technology used in every aspect of a litigation. Both corporate and legal professionals are strongly encouraged to attend.
