A Legal Education Presentation prepared and presented by HaystackID®

From nations and states to organizations and individuals, the focus on individuals’ fundamental rights and freedoms coupled with the common concerns for cybersecurity has driven the recognition and requirement for cyber and data hygiene in cybersecurity, privacy, and data protection. To move forward on the continuum of cyber and data hygiene, advisors, architects, and insurers must have a strong understanding of specific problems needing to be solved and potential solutions that they can employ to complete, complement, or augment current approaches.

While the problems are many and the solutions numerous, in this educational and informational forum on potential options for addressing point and area cyber and data hygiene challenges, HaystackID seeks to highlight three challenges to proper hygiene and present three tools that may be useful to cybersecurity, information governance, and legal discovery professionals as they deal with the practical and tactical needs of cybersecurity, privacy, and data protection requirements in today’s evolving workplace.

Led by cybersecurity, legal discovery, and computer forensics investigation expert, educator, and innovator, Michael Sarlo, this presentation will share insight and options on solutions from HaystackID, an international eDiscovery provider with specific offerings supporting cybersecurity, privacy, and data protection needs.

Three Challenges (Problem, Risk, Requirements)

Three Solutions (Description, Features, Employment)

The session’s objective will be to ensure attendees leave with a strong understanding of how solutions from HaystackID can support three interrelated challenges and help address the risks they present. Risks that are accelerating in tempo and complexity in today’s digitized and decentralized world.
