ACUA 2010 Editor, Johnny Lee, will present session [G-2], entitled “Best Practices in Managing eDiscovery and Data Retention Risks” at this year’s annual conference of the Association of College and University Auditors (ACUA).  Below is the session write-up:

Electronic Discovery (“eDiscovery”) can be a time-consuming, burdensome, and costly undertaking for your company. Studies reveal that nearly 90% of U.S. corporations are engaged in lawsuits and that the average U.S. company faces 305 such suits at any given time. Corporate law departments are struggling to keep pace with the recent changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (“FRCP”) governing eDiscovery, increased regulatory compliance issues, and the sheer volume of data created in today’s digital environments. Despite these obstacles and the significant costs that result, studies indicate that almost 60% of organizations have no formal program in place to manage their legal discovery risks.

In this session, participants will learn how to:

  • Describe the eDiscovery Landscape.
  • Apply traditional maturity models and best practices to Data Retention concepts.
  • Understand the state of the art for Data Management / Discovery technologies.
  • Articulate the crucial role of Internal Audit in Data Retention compliance.
