Welcome to the February 2014 issue of EDRM Update!
\r\nIssue 6 – February 2014\r\n\r\nFebruary is always a great month for EDRM. With LegalTech New York held each year at the beginning of the month, many members reconnect with one another and recommit to their projects with renewed interest and momentum.\r\n\r\nThis month we announced the reintroduction and refinement of the Privacy & Security Risk Reduction Model (PSRRM), a framework that provides a tested, methodical approach to data cleansing and the defensible handling of highly sensitive information. A special thanks goes out to the Data Set project group leaders, Michael Lappin and Eric Robi, and to all the group members who contributed their time and energy to completing this important initiative.\r\n\r\nWe are also excited to announce two key upcoming events – the 2nd Annual EDRM/University of Florida E-Discovery Conference and the annual EDRM Spring Kick-Off Meeting. Information about both can be found below and on the EDRM website.\r\n\r\nRegards,\r\n\r\nGeorge Socha & Tom Gelbmann\r\n\r\nTo receive the newsletter, subscribe to our list\r\n[contentblock id=1344]\r\n[toc]\r\n\r\n
February 2014 Highlights
\r\nThe Data Set group updated the diagram for the EDRM Privacy & Security Risk Reduction Model. Click here for more information. Let us know if you have any suggestions for further improvements.\r\n\r\nWade Peterson, profiled below, prepared a paper, Where’s the Innovation in Production? – Let’s Start With ENF, that was accepted for publication in the ASU-Arkfeld eDiscovery Conference course materials. That conference will be held on March 12-14. ENF is a new standard for the production of native files, being developed by EDRM’s Native Files group.\r\n\r\nThe Metrics groups’ budget calculators continue to be popular. If you have not downloaded them yet, you can get them at https://edrm.net/projects/metrics/budget-calculators.\r\n\r\n
In the EDRM Pipeline
\r\nNot exactly in the pipeline, but on March 14, the University of Florida Levin College of Law and EDRM will be holding a one-day conference, Electronic Discovery for the Small and Medium Case, in Gainesville, Florida. You can attend in person or live on-line, for the very affordable prices of $199 or $99. Details at http://www.law.ufl.edu/academics/ediscovery-conference.\r\n\r\nEDRM’s Search group is finaiizing its Search Intent Framework. Look for more information about that in the coming days.\r\n\r\nThe Data Set group has submitted a paper for publication, about the updates to the EDRM Privacy & Security Risk Reduction Model.\r\n\r\nThe Metrics group is preparing a paper on budget calcuators. The gorup also is planning the first in a series of focus group sessions on budget calculators.\r\n\r\n
\r\nWade Peterson, Director of Practice Support at Bowman and Brooke LLP\r\n\r\nEDRM Member since 2012\r\n\r\nEDRM Projects & Committees: I first participated in the Search working group and their development of the CARRM model; and then moved on to the new Native Files working group, contributing concepts for native file productions in a secured container known as ENF (encapsulated native file). I’ve written and published several articles on ENF both for EDRM and national eDiscovery conferences.\r\n\r\nWhy I’m an EDRM member: I joined EDRM after seeing the impact the organization has on the eDiscovery field. EDRM is an outstanding forum to collaborate with peers in the industry, in a non-competitive way, with vendors, law firms, corporations, and others in eDiscovery all cooperating and contributing their resources and knowledge to the advancement of the field. I’m proud to be a part of, and have the opportunity to contribute to, such an illustrious group of industry experts.\r\n\r\n
