According to Exterro's recent 2020 Corporate Legal Leaders Report, 7-in-10 Legal Departments are now managing their data related problems by sharing technology to manage litigation, data privacy, compliance, and cybersecurity – all of which represent a new encompassing business landscape of Legal GRC (Governance, Risk and Compliance).

Fuelled by data regulations like the GDPR and CCPA, we’re now seeing a major shift in how e-discovery is undertaken. Already, we’ve seen a big focus on information governance in a new way. Professionals who may have previously been solely focused on e-discovery, are also likely seeing the scope of their duties expand into these other Legal GRC areas.

Join ACEDS and Exterro on this webinar to explore:

  • How different data challenges are changing e-discovery and business needs
  • Strategies and technologies to help mitigate new data risks
  • Taking a holistic approach to Legal GRC challenges
