Fernando M. Pinguelo, founder of e-Lessons Learned,partner of the law firm Norris McLaughlin & Marcus, P.A., and Co-Chair of its Response to Electronic Discovery and Information (REDI) Group, and Robert Kleeger, Managing Director of The Intelligence Group, conducted a webcast titled: eData & Information Security: Friend or Foe?, on August 19, 2009, at 2:00 PM EST.  The webcast was presented by the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) and sponsored by Meritas.  Julienne W. Bramesco, General Counsel for Colonial Parking, moderated the one-hour webcast.

“Data and information security is simply the ongoing process of ensuring that data and information systems are kept safe from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, destruction, modification, disruption or distribution. Now, more then ever, we live in a world were an enormous amount of information is created, exchanged, and stored electronically. With this proliferation comes the daunting task and legal obligation to keep the data and information safe, secure, and accessible,” explained Pinguelo.

Participants of the one-hour webcast program will learn about business and legal reasons to address both data and information security, including Federal laws and standards enforced. Speakers will explore the costs experienced by companies that encounter a breach, including response costs, reputational costs, customer loss, and litigation. They will review examples to identify problems, examine key areas to ensure data and information are secure, and identify cost effective tips and practical policy tips to implement. The webcast is approved and available for CLE credit in California, Illinois, New York, Pennsylvania, and Texas.

    The blog takes a clever approach to [e-discovery]. Each post discusses an e-discovery case that involves an e-discovery mishap, generally by a company employee. It discusses the conduct that constituted the mishap and then offers its ‘e-lesson’ — a suggestion on how to learn from the mistake and avoid it happening to you.
