Yet they remain dramatically underrepresented at the top echelons of the profession. Two thirds of state and federal judges are men, as are 83 percent of elected prosecutors; less than one percent are women of color. In the majority of law firms, large and small, women make up only a fraction of the powerful inner circle: partners who bring in clients, lead litigation teams, and sit on powerful management and compensation committees. In the coveted position of first chair at trial, the number of women shrinks further. In this MCLE, law professor and trial lawyer Lara Bazelon explores the

The New Normal: 8 Steps to Seeing if Your Company Defends Customer Data

Program Number: 2904 Presenter: Elizabeth G. Litten, Esq.

According to a recent IBM survey, nearly two-thirds of consumers are more concerned about a breach of their private data than they are about going to war. Companies of all types and sizes collect and maintain customer data, and the customer assumes and expects that the company will protect their data and will not use, store, or share it in a way that puts them at risk. Today, a company should put as much effort into defending and protecting its customer data as it puts into defending and protecting its proprietary data and trade secrets, since breach, loss, or misuse will, at the very least, erode customer trust and the company’s reputation. Please join Fox Rothschild Partner and HIPAA Privacy and Security Officer Elizabeth Litten as she discusses eight steps your company can take to see if it is defending its customer data.

How Do You Solve a Problem Like E-mail

Program Number: 2903 Presenter: Therese Craparo, Esq., Anthony J. Diana, Esq.

For years, e-mail has been both a vital communications tool and a growing liability for many organizations. While e-mail may contain critical business records and data subject to legal hold, years of lax management, exponentially increasing volumes, and changing or aging e-mail systems present significant cyber-security, data privacy, litigation and operational risks. And with the advent of technology platforms that allow for more sophisticated indexing and analysis of data, including Microsoft 365, cleaning-up historical e-mail and developing processes that leverage new technology will be transformative for e-mail risk management. This program will review strategies for managing the risks associated with e-mail, including retention, Records categorization, legal hold implementation, auto-disposal, and centralization and will review case studies on: (i) the use of record classification technology to categorize 1.5 billion e-mail messages; (ii) the centralization of multiple e-mail data sources and billions of e-mail to facilitate retention, legal hold management and automated disposal; and (
