I n the ever-changing world of e-Discovery, corporations need to be innovative more than ever before. To keep knowledge current, law departments must understand the landscape of privacy laws, changes in e-Discovery law, and emerging technologies. Included are four white papers that will help you navigate these complex topics. With new privacy laws like CCPA and GDPR, corporations should know what data they have and where to find it. In the article, "How Counsel Can Find Solid Footing in the E-Discovery, Privacy Balancing Act", you can find some steps you can take to be proactive. Developing a strong data map is a great first step to help mitigate future risk. In addition, educating your employees about these new privacy laws is key. Data consumption is at unparalleled levels. In the not so distant past, a terabyte seemed like such a large data volume. Now, a petabyte is the new normal. Therefore, how do you know the valuable data and the junk data? Corporations need to throw out a raft and stop drowning in their Data Oceans. Minimizing the data is key. In the article "De-Risking e-Discovery for Corporations", Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 37(e) Amendment is discussed in detail. Are corporations embracing information governance or are they still too risk adverse to delete any data? Finally, new emerging technologies may help corporations manage their data. The article "Closing the Skills Gap: AI, Analytics and the Legal Profession" will give corporate legal departments an idea of how to manage their data by using data analytics and artificial intelligence. There is a trend in the legal community to take advantage of AI tools and technologies. Perhaps AI is the raft to help corporations from drowning in their "Data Oceans".
