Over four hundred inside and outside counsel, records managers and IT professionals attended  the first of our three part series of webinars titled The ESI Data Map:  What Inside Counsel and Records Managers Need to Know.  Following the overwhelming response to the webinar, and a technical glitch that prevented us from posting it here on E-discovery Bytes, we have decided to offer an encore presentation this Tuesday, March 24th at noon CST.  Feedback from attendees and chats from the internet billed it the "best webinar I've participated in" and "full of substantive information -- no fluff."   Please forward the link to this post to other colleagues, friends or associates you may have that might be interested in attending using the email link below this post.

As in the initial broadcast, John Collins, the Vice President of Consulting for The Ingersoll Firm, will lead the webinar with commentary from yours truly, Kelly Twigger of Quarles' Records Retention and E-Discovery Team, and  Lisa Berry-Tayman of Kahn Consulting.  I will discuss the benefits of utilizing a data map in an over all strategy to prepare for preserving, collecting, reviewing and producing electronic information as a way to identify where ESI lives in an organization's infrastructure and how best to consider implementing changes to reduce costs in storage and producing ESI.   Lisa will offer insights into how a data map fits into an organization's records management program and the importance of communication among multiple groups within the organization for successful implementation of any records program.  The webinar is free.  Click here to register.
