The Masters Conference for Legal Professionals, an advanced legal educational experience, announced today that Jack Halprin, Esq., Head of e-Discovery, Enterprise at Google, Inc., will deliver the keynote address over lunch at 12:00 – 1:00 on Wednesday, April 17, 2013, at the Masters Series event in San Francisco. This half day event takes place at the City Club of San Francisco.
Mr. Halprin will be discussing “The Cloud: Fear, Irrationality, and Reality” during his keynote address. Technology that leverages the cloud are fast becoming a reality in corporate America. Though a move to using cloud computing brings many benefits that include reduced costs to enhanced uptime, it is often hard to sift through the mountains of misinformation. During Mr. Halprin’s keynote address, he will examine the risks and benefits, and why moving to the cloud shouldn't put a company’s e-Discovery or corporate governance program at risk.
As head of e-Discovery, Enterprise, at Google, Mr. Halprin ensures Google’s legal team has the tools, technology and capabilities to meet e-discovery obligations. He also serves on the team working on the internal records management and information governance program. Mr. Halprin speaks frequently on information governance, risk management and compliance at industry events and seminars. He has authored numerous articles on e-Discovery, social media, cloud computing and knowledge management.

This should be a great session for all of our attendees.”
