Weekly Trends Report – 6/26/2019 Insights

Insight into where e-discovery, information governance cybersecurity, and digital transformation are heading – who is doing what now or in the future, what works and what doesn’t, and what people wish they could do but can’t – gleaned from recent publications

E-DISCOVERY

Unlock all iOS and high-end Android devices (if you are law enforcement) – Cellebrite announced that it now offers an exclusive solution for law enforcement to unlock and extract data from all iOS and high-end Android devices. Details are at the Cellebrite UFED Premium website.

New Sedona commentary – The Sedona Conference announced the publication of the Commentary on Legal Holds, Second Edition: The Trigger & The Process.

CYBERSECURITY & DATA PRIVACY

CCPA updates –

Nevada updates –

Maine internet privacy law –

  • Peter Guffin of Pierce Atwood wrote that Maine recently enacted an internet privacy law, An Act To Protect the Privacy of Online Customer Information, that requires broadband internet services providers to obtain customers’ express, affirmative consent before using their personal information.
  • Colleen Theresa Brown, Clayton Northouse, and Gabrielle Whitehall of Sidley also noted that the Maine statute requires opt-in, defines “customer personal information” broadly, and gives customers the right to revoke consent at any time.

New York next? – Joseph Lazzarotti, Jason Gavejian, and Maya Atrakchi of Jackson Lewis drew our attention to the New York Privacy Act, S5642, introduced last month, that they say is considered to be a more expansive version of the CCPA.  It would be akin to the CCPA in providing consumers with greater control over their personal data and imposing duties on business that control and process data. It would cover a wider range of business than the CCPA, give consumers additional rights such as the right to rectification, impose greater obligations on the covered business, and add a private right of action.

Data localization in Russia – In a client alert, King & Spalding noted that a bill has entered the Russian State Duma that would allow for administrative fines of between $30K and $280K for failing to properly comply with requirements for localization of processing of Russian citizen’s personal data.

Unpatched vulnerabilities a leading cause of data breaches – More than 27% of data breaches are the results of vulnerabilities that should have been patched, according to a recent survey by security company Tripwire and Dimensional Research that was reported by Ray Lapena of Tripwire and commented on by Steve Ranger of ZDNet and Sharon Nelson of Senseient.

LEGAL TECHNOLOGY & DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION

Investing in legal tech – Ari Kaplan of Ari Kaplan Advisors interviewed Alex Nwaka, a principal with Touchdown Ventures, about venture capital investments that law firms and corporate legal departments are making in legal tech, why they are going that route, and the implications of that approach.

E-DISCOVERY CASE LAW

Recent e-discovery decisions

4/18/2019 – U.S. District Court Judge George Smith denied plaintiff’s motion seeking a mandatory adverse inference for not preserving text messages. The responding defendant acknowledged that it had a duty to preserve text messages and had failed to take reasonable steps to do so. Plaintiff established that the text messages could not be restored or replaced through additional discovery. The Court found that plaintiff had not established the requisite intent and therefore refused to impose the sought-after sanction. The Court did order a lesser sanction, curative measures under FRPC 37(e)(1). At trial plaintiff may introduce evidence of the litigation hold letter and the responding defendant’s failure to preserve text messages and may argue for whatever inference it hopes the jury will draw. In turn the responding defendant may present its own admissible evidence and argue to the jury that it should not draw any inference from the responding defendant’s conduct. The Court also ruled that the non-responding defendant may move for a jury instruction the he be held harmless from the responding defendant’s failure to preserve text messages. DriveTime Car Sales Company, LLC v. Pettigrew (S.D. Ohio April 18, 2019).

5/7/2019 – U.S. Magistrate Judge Henry Pitman ordered that a receiving party may use the contents of an inadvertently produced putatively privileged documents to challenge the producing party’s assertion of privilege. Earlier in the case, the Court had approved a stipulated FRE 502(d) protective order. The order contained conflicting two conflicting sentences concerning the use of inadvertently produced documents. To reach this result, the Court drew instruction from two earlier decisions (American Express v. Accu-Weather, Inc., 91 Civ. 6485 (RWS), 92 Civ. 705 (RWS), 1996 WL 346388 (S.D.N.Y. June 25, 1996) and Stinson v. City of New York, 10 Civ. 4228, 2014 WL 5090031 (S.D.N.Y. Oct. 10, 2014)) and the 2006 Advisory Committee Notes to FRCP 26(b)(5)(B). The Court noted that “Because no law or rule of professional responsibility prohibits a party from using inadvertently produced material to challenge the assertion of a privilege or other protection, it appears that the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure permit a party that receives an inadvertently produced privileged document to use the content of that document to challenge the assertion of privilege.” In re Keurig Green Mt. Single Serve Coffee Antitrust Litig., No. 14 MD 2542 (VSB)(HBP) (S.D. N.Y. May 7, 2019).

6/7/2019 – U.S. District Court Judge Michael Simon denied plaintiff’s motion for case-dispositive sanctions but granted a motion for lesser sanctions. An individual defendant admitted that four days after accepting service of a document subpoena he destroyed responsive evidence located on his personal computer and in his personal cloud storage account. About a month later, the individual defendant discovered and deleted a file containing responsive email messages in his cloud account, a file he had not realized was there. About four months after that, the day before a TRO hearing, the individual defendant found and destroyed a responsive file in another cloud account. Finding that all the requirements of FRCP 37(e)(2) had been met, the Court ruled that it intends to provide the jury with a permissive inference spoliation instruction that the individual defendant intended to deprive plaintiff of the use of responsive information in the litigation. Univ. Accounting Serv., LLC v. Schulton, No. 3:18-cv-1486-SI (D. Or. June 7, 2019).

A Guide to the Galaxy – Incorporating Privacy-by-Design into eDiscovery Workflows

Fifty years ago, on July 16, 1969, the Apollo 11 lunar mission sent the first astronauts to the surface of the moon. The computing technology used on that Apollo mission was revolutionary. The astronauts could control the spacecraft through a command module computer, and critical safety and propulsion mechanisms were controlled by software for the first time. Today the computing technology of the average cell phone far exceeds the computing power of the spacecraft that got humans to the moon and home safely. A single iPhone could guide 120 million Apollo era spacecraft to the moon, all at the same time!

With that kind of computing power in our pockets, it is no wonder so many of us take advantage of numerous mobile applications, social media, messaging, and collaboration workstream tools as often as we do. On average, each of us spends 4 hours a day staring down at our phone, often blurring the lines between business and private communications.

The universe of discoverable ESI (electronically stored information) is evolving rapidly. For many organizations, within three years of adopting an enterprise-level workstream collaboration platform, the volume of new data generated from that platform will eclipse the amount of data generated by email. Notably, Microsoft Teams is quickly becoming Office 365’s main collaboration tool and is on pace to become as prominent as Outlook. Messaging data and social media communications are routinely implicated in discovery requests and, with increasing regularity, submitted as critical evidence in legal proceedings. Data collections and discovery requests involving mobile, messaging, and collaboration applications often involve personal data and PII (personally identifiable information). Sensitive personal information might be there unintentionally, due to the nature of the applications for keeping people connected and perhaps a business culture that comingles business and personal lives. Other reasons may include the frequency at which many of us increasingly use these applications outside the traditional 9-to-5 workday and a lack of corporate guidance or use policies for new and emerging technologies.

There is no doubt that redefining our eDiscovery processes, methods, and approaches is necessary for new technologies and the ESI they generate. Potentially responsive information likely exists in the candid communications common to messaging or collaboration applications, such as in chats, on virtual “white boards,” and in edited and re-edited versions of documents. But getting to this information, and along the way mitigating risks for personal data protection, is easier said than done. Emerging technologies are dynamic, context sensitive, and multi-dimensional. Every new content source requires its own method of collection, and they all behave just a little differently. It is likely that organizations will increasingly select discovery tools that can collect and process data across multiple cloud technologies or applications. This will ensure a reliable, defensible method of collection and processing compatible with conventional eDiscovery workflows already in place.

The implications for privacy and data protection, though, are considerable. Myriad multi-jurisdictional regulations require a balancing act to protect the data privacy of individuals while simultaneously meeting obligations for discovery. These regulations, such as the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and the now imminent California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), cannot be ignored. A raised consciousness and awareness of privacy protections in discovery is required, in parallel with efforts to preserve and produce relevant, discoverable ESI with efficiency and precision. A serious regulatory risk exists for unintended personal data – particularly health or other similarly sensitive information – which may somehow find its way into collection and discovery. The risk is heightened when the appropriate data minimization controls have not been implemented or even considered, resulting in personal data being swept up in overly broad collection exercises.

The challenge of protecting personal data is increasingly being addressed by eDiscovery workflows designed specifically for mobile data and ESI from collaboration applications. Although these solutions are at a relatively early stage of development, well-defined guidance is available for how to embed data protection across workflows without sacrificing existing road-tested best practices, i.e. Privacy by Design.

The Privacy by Design concept has been around for quite a while, with inception as a Canadian thought experiment in how to ensure data protection across emerging technologies. But it has now been codified in Article 25 of the GDPR. Privacy by Design provides a solid roadmap for how to build data protection compliance into a product or workflow from the ground-up, as opposed to shoe-horning requirements into a process after it has already been developed. Privacy by Design-based approaches for discovery seek to integrate personal information protection over the lifecycle of all data handling processes. Importantly, the focus is on adaptation and evolution, not a zero-sum game that trades capability for over-restrictive data protection measures. Key attention is accordingly placed on relevance and materiality, from data collection through production, across the entire EDRM (electronic discovery reference model).

In practice, Privacy by Design throughout discovery could be as follows (see illustration):

  • Information governance
    • Privacy compliance and legal teams become engaged when new content sources are evaluated for business use. These teams ensure that data collection can be carried out in a defensible way and that it incorporates security measures and data protection considerations, thus demonstrating accountability and a thoughtful consideration of these issues.
    • Well-defined use policies and clear requirements for employees are then implemented for enterprise devices and apps, particularly as processes and protocols evolve for eDiscovery.
  • Coordination with custodians
    • A collection process for more detailed, nuanced coordination with custodians is established – perhaps including some measure of self-collection for certain applications. However, self-collection will require a level of due diligence and assurance that the collections proceed properly, involving the right data, from the right custodian, for the right matter. In most cases, well-articulated, streamlined coordination with custodians will enable further insights into what unintended personal data or personal health data might be implicated in a collection. Again, this type of approach demonstrates accountability, a compliance requirement that could be crucial in the event of regulatory oversight.
  • Extracting personal data from data sets
    • As data moves across the EDRM and enters into processing, review and production, solutions for indexing, entity identification, and extraction aimed at removing, redacting, or otherwise disposing of any non-necessary personal data, ahead of even the review process, may significantly mitigate risk.
    • As an added measure, this same entity identification/extraction process can be replicated and reused for data subject access requests and breach responses, further enhancing the organization’s regulatory compliance posture.
  • Smart productions
    • At the very last stage of the discovery process, production quality control can serve as a last line of defense in eliminating non-material or unintended personal data. An emphasis on flawless productions is not only an essential part of the workflow, but should serve as the endgame of a truly well-developed eDiscovery playbook. The goal is to show every effort being made to ensure accountability for data protection compliance.
  • Data security across processing activities and transfers
    • It is absolutely necessary – at every stage of discovery – to ensure that technical and organizational measures for security and data protection are in place, including access controls, security processes, audits, and data transfer protections. Security protections are critical regardless of whether data is processed, hosted, reviewed, and ultimately produced in the EU, United States, or anywhere else. Data security can be the common thread for assuring data protection compliance across numerous regulatory frameworks, as well as for data transfers in cross-border litigation and investigations.

Our shifting global regulatory landscape for data protection, together with exponential growth in the use of mobile applications and collaboration workflow tools, is changing the way data collection is approached, how data is handled, and how organizations will be held accountable for the treatment of personal and sensitive data in the discovery process. Solutions will require a re-consideration of conventional approaches to forensics, data collection, and eDiscovery workflows.

Privacy by Design offers a useful model for embedding privacy protections into the discovery process. It enables organizations to chart a course in the new universe of data, including development of well-crafted information governance processes for new and emerging technologies, focusing on privacy risk mitigation throughout the EDRM, and ensuring an emphasis on data security each step of the way.

Technology doesn’t wait for anyone. While only 50 years separate the computers of the Apollo mission from today’s iPhones, the pace of technology advancement is exponential. eDiscovery processes must keep up.

Three Ways E-Discovery Providers and Consumers Can Make this Industry Better

In 1996, Steve Jobs regained the helm at Apple. In a recorded talk he gave to the marketing team, he reminded them what it meant to work for Apple. He reminded them why Apple exists as a company and what its core values have been and always should be. Jobs said that in his absence, marketing was spending a lot of money, and the company forgot who it was at its core. He said, in part, “even a great brand needs investments and caring if it’s going to retain its relevance and vitality.” At Apple, he said, “we believe that people with passion can change the world for the better … we believe that in this world people can change it for the better and that those people that are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones that actually do.”

Understanding your “why” statement is critical to one’s success as a person, as an organization, and when choosing an eDiscovery partner. While I’ve written multiple times about how to find your own “why” statement (see here, here and here), today, I want to share three ways in which we can make this industry better, as both eDiscovery providers and decision makers.

1. Why does the eDiscovery provider exist?

This isn’t a question that I have ever seen on an RFP! However, think about how important the answer truly is for the success of your eDiscovery projects at your law firm or legal department. I am so grateful for the opportunity to be connected with some great CEO’s in this industry. I have asked them this question: “why does the world need another eDiscovery vendor?” Shockingly, I get silence from some and then from others I get, “to make money.” Neither is an acceptable answer. In the former, silence is deafening, and the latter proves that they are tone deaf to what this market truly needs. As Simon Sinek said, author of “Start with Why,” people don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it!

In the age of every vendor trying to prove their AI is better than the next person, there is a deafening void of companies that, like Apple, have a concrete mission. Companies that understand that operating from the inside-out (talking about your why statement) and not from the outside-in (talking about how great your features are) drives customer and brand loyalty, and therefore creates an exceptional customer experience that is so good, it is what Kenneth Blanchard and Sheldon Bowles called the “Raving Fans.” When that happens, the company becomes not just profitable, but sustainable in an era of increased consolidation.

If the eDiscovery provider you want to pick next can clearly elucidate its purpose and mission to you, and through its actions proves that this is true, you found a winner.

2. Presentation Coma: Accolades. Company History. Employees. Locations.

The invitation from a prospect by a law firm or corporate legal department to have an eDiscovery sales team present on its company, it should be considered a privilege and not a right. That may seem like an obvious statement, but how often is it exercised? Think of the last time a salesperson walked in, opened her laptop, and then droned on for the first 20 minutes about her company’s history, the number of awards it received, how many locations it has, and how many people are employed there in front of a room of extremely busy professionals, most of whom may be billing by the hour. Don’t get me wrong — those are data points that are helpful to know. But for the first 20 minutes?

I learned a long time ago from Nancy Duarte, Garr Reynolds, and Scott Schwertly that the story that you tell through big headlines and high-resolution photos on your slides is vastly more demonstrative than 12-point font and 10 bullet points on a screen. What should the focus be on instead? How the company makes you feel. Sound odd? Let’s go back to Steve Jobs’ marketing speech. In talking about some of the best marketing ever, he mentions Nike. It’s a shoe company. They sell a highly commoditized product (like eDiscovery). But, in any of their commercials, are they talking about how much better the air soles are in Nike shoes over Reebok? No. Rather, Nike wants you to walk away from a commercial feeling differently about Nike shoes. They show great athletes and encourage persistence, strength, and commitment to be the best. That is why “Just Do It” has been one of the most successful ad campaigns. We can all relate. Nike makes us feel differently and so we want to buy their shoes.

eDiscovery companies should be selling the same way. Certainly, Apple and Nike all make great products, but that’s not what they’re marketing. I remember years ago when I was working in the Litigation Services business unit at LexisNexis, I would present with stories. These stories would be about the lawyers’ faces on the slides of my presentation who used CaseMap or Concordance (I did say this was years ago!) and created their own client successes. I did the same when I was at Iris Data Services, the company that first introduced real eDiscovery Managed Services to the market. I showed faces and names of litigation professionals talking about how Iris was a real partner and not just a vendor. Why do you think so many other vendors often said: “no one ever got fired for hiring Iris?” Because we had stories about success, and that equals trust, credibility, empathy, and most of all, a real partnership between a vendor and its customer. It creates “Raving Fans.”

3. Let’s not make it about the price per GB

In our industry, we have more than 500 eDiscovery providers that essentially can do the same thing: process data, host data in a review platform, provide review lawyers, and produce. There are variations in there, but in a world in which price compression creates commoditization, which causes nearly every vendor to say we can process better, cheaper, faster; host cheaper per gigabyte; and offer the best Project Managers out there, as consumers, become numb. After all, if you’re better, cheaper, faster, what else do you have to hang your hat on? What else do you have to make yourself seem better than everyone else?

Apple sells computers, tablets, and phones that are all well over $1,000. But yet, so many of us crave for an Apple product. Why? It’s how Apple makes you feel about its products. And yet, a desktop, laptop, tablet, and phone are all highly commoditized and you can buy them all for dramatically lower prices! Again, you feel like you belong to an elite crowd flashing the Apple logo wherever you go. The lesson learned here is that as consumers, we tend to pay more (sometimes a lot more) for products we believe in. The same should go for eDiscovery.

I wish that eDiscovery providers would stop racing to the bottom of the pricing barrel in order to win over a customer. I want providers to show that they are better than this. Show value. Don’t provide overly complex pricing structures and hidden fees. Show that there’s a way you can differentiate that solves real business problems. The technology is there; the personnel is there; the business leaders across sales and operations are there. There’s a way to stand out from the overcrowded marketplace to show that you can do more; be more, and solve the bottlenecks. We have countless examples across multiple verticals that consumers will pay more for a company’s product or a service even if they can get it cheaper elsewhere.

For the decision makers out there, I invite you to look beyond how many free users, free project management hours, free hosting, and free processing you can milk out of providers. Rather, ask about the value they can provide in a partnership with your company. Ask about how they can differentiate through education. Are they a vendor or a partner? Ask if anyone on their team has their CEDS certification or are actively involved in their local ACEDS chapter. Ask how many thought leaders there are at the company regularly producing educational content that can help solve critical business issues at your own company. Demand better than just free — ask providers to show you they are better. After all, nothing in life is really “free.”

Wrapping up

“It’s a very noisy world. We’re not going to get a chance to have people remember much about us. No company is. And so we have to be really clear about what they want us to know about us.” Jobs’ speech back then is equally relevant today in a very noisy eDiscovery world where everyone alleges to have the best AI, the best processing, and all of the latest advancements, we need to ask deeper more and more personal questions to the providers as consumers. As providers, we need to think more about why your company exists, and whether your company’s actions align with your mission statement — or are you ultimately just about the lowest cost per GB? Together, as consumers and providers, let’s strive for more thoughtful questions to solve not just today’s eDiscovery challenges, but strive to create sustainable solutions into the future.

Weekly Trends Report: 6/19/2019 Insights

Insight into where e-discovery, information governance cybersecurity, and digital transformation are heading – who is doing what now or in the future, what works and what doesn’t, and what people wish they could do but can’t – gleaned from recent publications

6/20/201906/21/2019 Duke Law Bolch Judicial Institute proportionality conference – Please join us on 6/20 and 6/21 in Arlington, VA for the Duke Law Bolch Judicial Institute invitation-only Distinguished Lawyers conference on Evaluating the 2015 Rule 26 Discovery-Proportionality Amendments and Bolch-Duke Guidelines and Best Practices.

E-DISCOVERY

Want data from France? – In a recent white paper, French Blocking Statute: A Renewed Interest?, Jones Day attorneys posited that the French Blocking Statute may enjoy renewed popularity, potentially creating heightened risks for companies ordered to produce documents in proceedings outside the United States.

Numbering natives – In Who says You Can’t Bates Number Native Productions?, Craig Ball returned a point he and others have made before: that producing in native file formats does not require we give up our cherished Bates numbering.

CYBERSECURITY & DATA PRIVACY

Oregon amended data breach notification law – Daniel Moses of Jackson Lewis reported that Oregon’s Senate Bill 684, signed into law on May 24, made at least five substantive changes to the state’s data breach notification law: expanding the definition of “breach of security” to cover personal information a person “maintains or possesses”; expanding the definition of “personal information” sufficient to trigger breach notification obligations to include individuals’ account usernames and passwords; adding new defined terms “covered entity” and “vendor”; creating new obligations for “vendors”; and adding protection for covered entities or vendors who are in compliance with HIPAA or the GLBA.

More on Nevada – Nevada recently amended its privacy law, SB220, with opt-out rights to take effect Oct. 1. Here is a sampling of reactions:

This week’s CCPA installment –

BIPA litigation and response – Susan Lorenc, James Shreve, and Ryan Gehbauer of Thompson Coburn commented on the class action lawsuits filed under the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act and the Illinois Senate’s response, SB2134, which along with earlier efforts appears to have failed; and gave an overview of BIPA and its compliance requirements.

State consumer protections statutes as weapons – Matthew Denn and Amanda Fitzsimmons of DLA Piper, analyzing a recent District of Columbia Superior Court decision, District of Columbia v. Facebook, concluded that “general state consumer protection statutes can serve as a viable weapon in the arsenal of State Attorneys General who wish to challenge the reasonableness of entities’ data privacy practices and disclosures.”

LEGAL TECHNOLOGY & DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION

How’s that legal incubator going? – Artificial Lawyer asked three members of the first cohort of Slaughter & May’s Collaborate incubator how things are going. Tabled, Clarilis, and Just: Access responded with “just right”, “extremely positive”, and “an amazing opportunity”.

Duke Law accelerator launched latest legal tech incubator – Duke Law Tech Lab has published the names of the 12 teams selected for 2019. Their program started June 7 and will culminate with a demo day on Friday, Sept. 20 at the law school.

How Can We Accelerate the Rebuilding of Trust and Confidence in Financial Services?

According to the annual Edelman Trust Barometer, the banking and financial services sector is routinely rated as the least trusted of all sectors. That’s a serious and systemic problem for a sector that needs to be trusted to function succesfully.

There’s nothing new in that problem – it has been widely accepted for decades that financial services isn’t trusted; and of course the Global Financial Crisis made the problem even worse. We can think of the trust deficit as a festering sore on the face of financial services; and it’s a sore that simply hasn’t been treated.

Treatment of the trust deficit is long overdue so I hope you find it refreshing to know that many people around the world are now working together to actually do something about the problem. They are working together on a voluntary basis to “create a framework for finance reform;” and at the heart at that framework for finance reform is a wonderfully simple yet potentially very effective idea – to have “Finance Development Goals.

There are 12 Finance Development Goals and each one is focused on a root cause of the trust deficit.

Here’s a straightforward listing of the Finance Development Goals with an accompanying quotation for each one to help articulate what they are about:

FDG: Be transparent

“Sunlight is the best of disinfectants; electric light the most efficient policeman” – Justice Louis Brandeis

FDG: Be Evidence-Based

“In God we trust, all others bring data.”  – W Edwards Deming

FDG: Govern well

“Good governance is the art of putting wise thought into prudent action in a way that advances the well-being of those governed.” – Diane Kalen-Sukra

FDG: Create a client-centric culture

“Ethics is knowing the difference between what you have a right to do and what is right to do.” – Potter Stewart

FDG: Design products that deliver

“Good design is like a refrigerator—when it works, no one notices, but when it doesn’t, it sure stinks.” – Irene Au

FDG: Communicate authentically

“The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”  – George Bernard Shaw

FDG: Act with purposefulness

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary projects, all your thoughts break their bonds; your mind transcends limitations; your consciousness expands in every direction; and you find yourself in a great new and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.” – Patanjali

FDG: Incentivise responsibly

“Show me the incentives and I’ll show you the outcome” – Charlie Munger, Berkshire Hathaway

FDG: Stabilise the ecosystem

“Remember when nurses, carers, teachers and students crashed the stock market, wiped out banks, took billions in bonuses and paid no tax? No, me neither.” – Fuad Alakbarov

FDG: Raise awareness through education

“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” – Benjamin Franklin

FDG: Raise awareness through education

“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” – Benjamin Franklin

FDG: Protect the consumer from harm

“To not do what you can to protect someone, that’s cowardly.” – Jodi Lynn Anderson

FDG: Manage Risk

“Not taking risks one doesn’t understand is often the best form of risk management.” – Raghuram G. Rajan

The idea is that the many hundreds of people involved with the project will work collaboratively to create and execute a plan that centres around engaging with the 1,000 most influential people in financial services, who, in effect, govern the way the financial services sector operates.

Those VIPs include politicians, policymakers, regulators, the leaders of the major trade bodies, the leaders of the professional associations and the top financial think tanks, academics and thought leaders; and of course the leaders of the major commercial organisations; be they banks, asset managers, insurers and so on.

If you wish to know more about this initiative to help drive positive, progressive and purposeful finance reform, you should know that there are special meetings taking place in Europe, North America, the Far East and Australia; and of course if you can’t attend any of them you can engage with the project through conference calls and webinars.

All are welcome, especially those with an interest in the intersection between technology and regulation; and those who have an interest in topics such as data science, regulation, compliance and e-discovery.

Please enquire through andy.agathangelou@transparencytaskforce.org

Weekly Trends Report – 6/12/2019 Insights

Insight into where e-discovery, information governance cybersecurity, and digital transformation are heading – who is doing what now or in the future, what works and what doesn’t, and what people wish they could do but can’t – gleaned from recent publications

6/19/2019 Building Tomorrow’s Business: What does digital transformation mean for middle-market companies in 2019? – Please join Gary Bie of Stony Brook Medicine and Malcolm Cohron of BDO on 6/19 at noon ET for a webinar examining the results of BDO’s inaugural Digital Transformation Services survey.

6/20/201906/21/2019 Duke Law Bolch Judicial Institute proportionality conference – Please join us on 6/20 and 6/21 in Arlington, VA for the Duke Law Bolch Judicial Institute invitation-only Distinguished Lawyers conference on Evaluating the 2015 Rule 26 Discovery-Proportionality Amendments and Bolch-Duke Guidelines and Best Practices.

E-DISCOVERY

Office 365 video series – Tom O’Connor of the Gulf Legal Tech Center and Rachi Messing of Microsoft are putting on a video series on the e-discovery features in Office 365. Each episode is a little under ½ hour long. Episodes so far:

Bitcoin discovery – Jordan Bowne of Burns & Levinson offers thoughts on the discovery of cryptocurrency in a two-part series:

CYBERSECURITY & DATA PRIVACY

Congressional Research Service report – The non-partisan Congressional Research Service has published a 27-page report, Technological Convergence: Regulatory, Digital Privacy, and Data Security Issues, that described technological convergence and for three areas of convergence discusses issues and potential congressional policy options. The three areas are: regulatory (regulating converging technologies and evolving companies); digital privacy (current data protection laws, data privacy and data security, and data brokers); and data security.

More CCPA –

Nevada updated privacy law to take effect in October – Odia Kagan of Fox Rothschild reported that Nevada’s updated privacy law will go into effect on October 1.  Current law requires operators of Internet websites or online services which collection certain PII about consumers in Nevada to make available a notice. The updates revise the definition of “operator”, require operators to establish designated request addresses consumers may use to request covered information not be sold, defines “sale”, prohibits operators who have received requests from selling covered information, and authorized the Attorney General to seek injunctions or civil penalties for violations.

Nevada law offers new but still constrained right – Alan Friel and Shea Leitch of BakerHostetler wrote that Nevada Senate Bill 220, recently signed into law, updates Nevada Revised State 603A to provide consumers a new right to opt out of the sale of their data – the first law in the US granting consumers that right. They remark that the new Nevada right is far more circumscribed that similar rights set forth in the CCPA or the GDPR.

Texas consumer data privacy bills stall – Rachel Ehlers of Jackson Lewis noted that the two Texas proposed consumer data privacy bills have stalled.

Sedona Conference cross-border commentary – The Sedona Conference has published The Sedona Conference Commentary and Principles on Jurisdictional Conflicts over Transfers of Personal Data Across Borders, Public Comment Version. The comment period is open through Aug. 10.

LEGAL TECHNOLOGY & DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION

Wilson Sonsini in the CCPA app business – Roy Strom of Bloomberg law reported that Wilson Sonsini hopes to generate millions of dollars in revenue with a CCPA compliance app recently published by the firm’s SixFifty tech subsidiary, launched in February. The first week’s sales exceeded $100,000.

PwC Scale | LawTech cohort – According to Artificial Lawyer, the first PwC Scale | LawTech cohort is:

  • AuditXPRT: AI solution for regulatory compliance and audit
  • Capnovum: Cognitive compliance management for financial institutions
  • Cognitiv+: Using AI to get legal insights from contracts, understanding your legal obligations

E-DISCOVERY CASE LAW

Recent e-discovery decisions

4/12/2019 – U.S. District Court Judge John Coughenour denied plaintiff’s motion for sanctions. In response to plaintiff’s discovery demands, defendant initially produced some but not all of contents of a PST file – emails from 12/2014 to 3/24/2016. Plaintiff took issue with the production and defendant agreed to produce the remainder of the PST. Defendant gathered emails from various locations, deduplicated them, loaded them into Relativity, and from there produced the entire contents of the PST file. Plaintiff contended that defendant spoliated the email ESI by not producing the entire PST “in whole, untouched, pristine condition” as well as by producing only part of the contents initially and the rest later. The Court rejected these arguments, finding that ” bifurcation of the .PST file does not constitute destruction of the relevant evidence therein sufficient to support Plaintiff’s claim of spoliation” and that “Plaintiff has not established that Defendant acted with a culpable mind when it initially disclosed only part of the .PST file, as Defendant believed it had complied with Plaintiff’s discovery request by producing the relevant part of the .PST file.” Plaintiff also argued that defendant spoliated the PST because some files were still missing after defendant produced the complete PST. The Court rejected that claims on several bases, including that plaintiff had not met and conferred with defendant in this issue, had not established that the files could not be obtained through further discovery, and had not offered evidence that defendant acted with ill intent. Neely v. The Boeing Company, Case No. C16-1791-JCC (W.D. Wash. April 23, 2019).
