I t's clear that the role of the ediscovery professional is changing as evidenced by the articles in this white paper which shed light on the additional knowledge and skills required to remain current. We begin with an article by Eric Pulsipher and Joan M. Washburn on the convergence of privacy, security and ediscovery and how the skills gained by ediscovery professionals combined with additional education can lead to further professional advancement, and even an edge on the competition as ediscovery professionals have skill sets which are not present in other areas. We then move on to the evolving identity of corporate ediscovery and information governance professionals by Ben Robbins wherein he examines the roles and responsibilities of corporate ediscovery professionals given the synergies between ediscovery, information governance, security, and privacy and how roles are changing to meet the demands placed upon corporations by changing legislation. We then go delve deeper into information governance and the gap that exists between information governance and ediscovery materials in the article by Stephen Cole of Mattern & Associates wherein Stephen looks at information governance policies and how ediscovery needs to be addressed as part of an overall information governance strate. This is followed by the article by Nishan DeSilva of Microsoft and Donna Payne of PayneGroup where they provide an introduction to Microsoft's tools for data and information governance within Office 365 and Microsoft 365, and how these tools can be used to comply with data retention and destruction policies as part of an overall information governance strate. We then move on to a series of articles on current and future methods for working more efficiently, and begin with an article by Jason Richard of H5 about conquering email by using data analytics. Jason looks at email threading, and in particular, and how it can reduce review costs from 40-50% on cases of all sizes along with the benefits that can be gained by using same. Next, we move on the topic of mobile litigation in the 21st Century where Walter Lee of Legal Document Server notes the efficiencies that can be gained by using online case management systems to streamline the exchange of documents and associated ease of access. Then we look at Smart Spaces which is an up-and-coming area that will certainly feature prominently in years to come. Don Fuchs of Legal Anywhere, (which is part of HighQ), provides insight into smart spaces and how they are being used to eliminate silos and gain client business by providing clients with better tools and access to information and documents relevant to an engagement. Finally, we conclude with an insightful article by Tim Piganelli on how to capture and keep the attention of millennials in the jury box despite the fact that courtroom display methods have not changed. Thank you to the authors and their organizations for sharing their knowledge and experience. We are all wiser as a result. Also thank you to the Content Coordinating Team, and editorial staff for their contributions. Many hands make the work light (and more enjoyable).
