Paper Obsolete? Understanding eDiscovery.
Paper has endured as information technology for millennia, recording and preserving much of the foundation of our societies and specifically our legal systems. The legal process has developed methods for making sense of information presented on paper documents. Much of the information available today, however, is electronic. Because most information is stored and transmitted electronically, adjudication requires an understanding of the technology used to manage information. How is information stored, processed, and transmitted in the electronic information systems of today? How does the Internet support today’s information management? What can be learned from forensic examination of information systems?
C. Matthew Curtin of Interhack, the firm hired to investigate the breach of sensitive information reported missing from the automobile of a local court employee this past summer, will discuss the background of how electronic information is stored and may be traced through forensic examination of information systems in the seminar titled “Paper as Obsolete: What Every Lawyer Needs to Know about Information Technology and E-discovery” on Thursday, April 24 from 9 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. for 3.0 CLE hours of credit. His firm not only determined what information breached was potentially damaging but also performed a security assessment of the state’s security policy.
Mr. Curtin will present actual case studies from his own experience as a forensic computer scientist to help solidify your understanding of the critical elements of electronic information and to develop good intuition on how to make sense of findings presented by experts and technical fact witnesses.
