While there are still amendments to be settled before 2020, there are several few key ways to get ready for the CCPA’s privacy governance and consumer rights requirements. In this session, we’ll outline what this new law means for your business, detail what changes to expect to see before it’s put into effect, and lay out a 5-step guide to demonstrating on-going compliance the CCPA. We’ll also share findings from research conducted with the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) on how ready (or not) businesses are for the CCPA, what factors are driving compliance and how the GDPR fits into CCPA readiness.

Like with any business, Discovery is often pigeonholed into what a part perceives as “obligations” (like time entry for attorneys). However, every lawsuit also has a business component where opportunities to be strategic (rather than simply responsive) can be designed and deployed. During this panel discussion we’ll ask for the perspectives of outside and in-house counsel as well as legal operations on how the “return on investment” can be best defined and validated for strategic discovery efforts

Artificial intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing the legal profession as it has done in finance, entertainment, healthcare, and manufacturing and this has some lawyers and technologists worried. There is an emerging approach to machine learning and AI that focused on augmenting and amplifying human intelligence rather than replacing it. Leveraging an augmented intelligence model powered by things like advanced analytics, continual active learning (CAL) and machine translation, lawyers can supercharge their decision making and reduce time to insight. Today's AI technology is perfect for repetitive tasks that require human intelligence where an increase in productivity and decrease in errors and cost are the goals, document review is an ideal candidate for the application of AI technology and its benefits. Leveraging augmented intelligence in ediscovery can find evidence faster, increase efficiency, and decrease errors while reducing the overall cost exponentially.
