On Thursday, February 7, 2013 (1 p.m. EST), Reed Smith attorney Mark Melodia will serve as a guest speaker for a webcast on “Big Data Converging with Legal, Information Governance and Regulatory Requirements.” The webcast will be hosted by Exterro, Inc., an e-discovery software solutions provider.

Leading companies in nearly all industries are gathering unprecedented types and quantities of data in order to better understand their customers and monetize the results, but the existence of these complex data sets has potential costs and challenges as well: how can this information be kept secure, what happens in the case of a breach, and how do ESI preservation and retrieval obligations change in a Big Data context? Mark will be addressing some of these important questions, alongside other professionals in the Big Data and e-discovery fields from Ernst and Young and TERIS.
