Clutch Group AVP Laura Jungels Speaks on Global Data Privacy at 2014 Electronic Discovery Institute Summit
October 16, 2014. Lauderdale, FL. Clutch Group, an organization dedicated to delivering the professional services for law, is sponsoring and participating in the 2014 Electronic Discovery Institute (EDI) Leadership Summit in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, from the 15th-17th of October.
The EDI Leadership Summit advances corporate and government decision-makers’ understanding of current legal technology issues through collaborative roundtables, panel discussions, and workshops. Key issues being discussed at this year’s summit include eDiscovery, litigation management, data preservation, email archiving, social media, and cyber security.
Laura Jungels, Associate Vice President at Clutch Group, will participate in a panel discussion titled “Crossing the Border” during the seminar. The panel, as set out by EDI, will “explore the complex web of competing foreign data protection and privacy laws, their implications for complying with eDiscovery obligations, and best practices for handling these international conflicts.”
“Clutch is excited to be returning to the Summit for a second year,” Ms. Jungels said. “We know firsthand that managing eDiscovery amidst conflicting international data laws is becoming an increasingly complex challenge. In fact, we’ve been doing a significant amount of work internationally this year, and these are critical issues that we’ve helped our clients manage. It’s my hope that this panel discussion will shed some much-needed light on these key issues.”
In addition to Ms. Jungels, panel members will consist of Taylor Hoffman, Senior Vice President and Head of eDiscovery at Swiss Re, Christian Zeunert, Global eDiscovery Counsel at UBS, and Nick Burkhill, attorney at Dorsey & Whitney LLP. The panel will be moderated by Shari Aberle, also an attorney at Dorsey & Whitney.
Barbara Hanahan, Director of Communication at EDI, noted how panels like the one Ms. Jungels is participating in are valuable for both panelists and the audience. “The EDI Summit panels provide a unique opportunity to develop relationships with key decision-makers through dialogue.” Ms. Hanahan explained. “We love to have companies like Clutch participate in these discussions because they bring additional perspectives to critical issues like international data security.”
