It is a boutique educational forum where a select group of speakers, vendors and attendees convene to engage in a proactive collaboration on current challenges in the legal space.
Diane will be speaking on "The Social Media (R)evolution: How Social Media Content Impacts E-Discovery Risks and Costs." This panel of attorneys and industry experts will discuss how to develop sound social media policies while navigating the waters of compliance, corporate regulations, e-discovery and attorney ethics. The panel will examine how pervasive social media truly is, as well as how to develop policies that empower the corporation to ride the rapidly changing tide, without taking on too much risk. The presentation will touch on where social media preservation is now, where it will be heading, and the importance of creating strong corporate policies governing usage, e-discovery, archiving and compliance.To register, visit http://themastersconference.com/events/.
