The panel will also review how professionals are integrating big data and machine learning in e-discovery, compliance, and regulatory matters. Finally, the panel will share best practices for implementing the use of advanced technology to boost productivity and ensure the use of AI remains defensible.

Looking Ahead: How to Get the Most Out of TAR 2.0

2:45 pm – 3:45 pm ET

Much has changed since TAR first gained judicial approval in the landmark 2012 Da Silva Moore v. Publicis Groupe decision. This panel will consider how TAR’s capabilities have grown over the last few years, evolving from an inscrutable “black box” to a powerful technology that can drive litigation strategy. In this session, attendees will learn key workflows for optimizing the use of TAR, accelerating document review and ensuring defensibility as our expert panelists discuss advanced TAR 2.0 workflows. Xavier Diokno will serve as discussion moderator and the presentation will be held in the Beekman Parlor.

As data breaches occur more frequently, all types of organizations must understand how to measure their own cybersecurity and data privacy readiness, and also the readiness of the law firms and legal vendors they share their sensitive information with. In this session, Hornbeck and Twomey will discuss legal trends regarding cybersecurity, organization’s legal obligations according to the ABA, cloud security, and the basics of incident response – what are the steps when your information is compromised? This program is designed to be interactive and provide participants with a solid understanding of “where to start” when considering their own information security and privacy needs as clients. These sessions will occur at Booth 114.
