While many are focused on pending Rules changes, the courts had plenty to say in 2014 about how organizations should handle data preservation. Opinions were more nuanced as the courts confront burgeoning data, evolving technologies and new data sources. Some of the country's leading jurists and e-discovery experts will convene to review five key opinions and what they mean for corporations in order to avoid similar pitfalls. (No vendor participants in panel discussion.)

This high-powered panel will provide actionable techniques that corporations need to pursue in order to reduce the cost of ESI preservation while mitigating risk. The goal is simple: to put your organization in a better position the next time a preservation duty arises. (No vendor participants in panel discussion.)
