The Electronic Discovery Reference Model’s CEO Mary Mack Interviewed by CEOCFO Magazine
MINNEAPOLIS, July 7, 2020 – Setting the global standards for e-discovery, The Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM)
is pleased to announce that Mary Mack, CEO and chief legal technologist, is honored to have been interviewed by CEOCFO magazine.
Mary Mack leads the global project-based organization EDRM and is known for her skills in relationship- and community-building as well as for the depth of her e-discovery knowledge, both legal and technical. She is frequently sought by media outlets for comment on industry issues and by conference organizers to participate, moderate panels, lead workshops or deliver keynote addresses.
Mary is the author of “A Process of Illumination: The Practical Guide to Electronic Discovery,” considered by many to be the first popular book on e-discovery. She is the coeditor of the Thomson Reuters West treatise “E-Discovery for Corporate Counsel.” Mary was also recently honored to be included in the book “Women Know Cyber: 100 Fascinating Females Fighting Cyber Crime,” published by Cyber Ventures in May 2019. Mary is a member of the Illinois Bar Association, is a certified information systems security professional (CISSP) and holds additional certifications in data forensics and telephony.
“Kaylee Walstad, EDRM’s chief strategy officer, and I, are humbled to steward the work of the EDRM global community and to make our resources freely available throughout the world,” said Mary Mack. “Attention and engagement are the new currency, and the contributors to EDRM’s frameworks and resources are serving a global, multidisciplinary audience who support the rule of law.”
The biggest surprise was how deep and rich the work is that was done prior to us assuming leadership. The people who have contributed to the EDRM are so incredibly smart and generous and making everything available the way that they did. I think that was probably one of the biggest surprises. The other was the level of people that are involved in it. When I was involved in the early days of the EDRM, it was people in the trenches, hands-
on doing the work. That was many years ago and now the same people are in positions of authority and have fabulous careers and they are very involved and we are just so pleased.
