The Belgian and Hessian data protection authorities are investigating a data breach reported by Mastercard that affected 90,000 customers, British Airways has been fined and Sweden is now added to the list of the EU nations that have handed out EU fines. GDPR compliance is a pressing concern.  But that is not all. In the United States, the state of Nevada has a new law going into effect in two months, ahead of the California Consumer Privacy Act, and New York City is considering banning cell phone tracking.  There are plans to reintroduce a biometric privacy bill in Florida. Protestors in Hong Kong are taking down traffic cameras.  What does a company or a lawyer advising a company need to know to keep up with 2020 and beyond?

The e-disclosure process inherently opens organisations up to unintentionally compromise personal data if processes are not in place to incorporate privacy protection principles into the e-disclosure process. Legal teams must make sure their e-disclosure preservation and data privacy and governance programs comply with data privacy and cybersecurity regulations to avoid opening their organisations up to lawsuits or regularity liability. The plaintiffs’ bar will no doubt leverage the complexities of these regulations to their advantage. Organisations must be prepared.

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.

As data continues to proliferate, obsolete data can be a ticking time bomb for those organizations that do not adopt defensible data deletion programs.  The cost of extra storage is the least of the problems:  out-of-control e-disclosure costs, data breach exposure, privacy law compliance, and systems getting bogged down with redundant, obsolete and trivial data (“ROT”) all create substantial organizational risks.  Come to this session to learn how your organization can effectively start to address those risks, eliminating the ROT, cutting costs and reducing future liability exposure.

Sophisticated technology has been developed to manage and analyze large volumes of documents for dispute resolutions, disclosure and discovery.  Now similar technology has been adapted and enhanced to allow large scale contract analysis at much less time and cost than traditional manual review.  This will help to address a pressing need for many companies, for example, in identifying and amending contracts that reference LIBOR interest rates, that are ending after 2021.
