IGI Celebrates 2nd Anniversary During Legaltech Week

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Flashback to February 2015. Our team sat down the week after Legaltech New York exhausted and wondered how much better could it be then to celebrate a successful first year during one of the biggest legal technology events of the year.

Well year 2 is even better. The weather even cooperated.

We began the week on February 2nd with a session sponsored by IGI Charter Supporter Hewlett Packard Enterprise titled Ditch That Data to Mitigate Risk and Reduce Legal Spend featuring our Executive Director, Barclay T. Blair; Mark W. Cowing of Shook, Hardy & Bacon LLP; and Michael Simon of Seventh Samurai and moderated by Greg Clark of Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

Barclay also spoke that afternoon on Charter Supporter kCura’s session From Ashley Madison to the Sony Hack-Cybersecurity Strategy Best Practices for 2016. The panel also included Judy Selby of Baker Hostetler and John Loveland of Consilio and was moderated by Dean Gonsowski of kCura.

We held our anniversary party that night over 300 guests showed up to join us in our celebrations. Thank you to Guidance Software, Active Navigation, Bryan University, EDRM and Legal Technology Professionals Institute for sponsoring the event. This was the second year Active Navigation and Bryan University joined us to celebrate.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]On February 3rd, we were up bright and early with our Advisory Board and Industry Committee members discussing the IGI’s plans for 2016 including our upcoming annual survey, benchmarking interviews, CIGO Summit, IG Boot Camps, and plenty of blogs, white papers, case studies and other publications that you can use for your IG programs.

Following our Advisory Board and Industry Committee meeting was a panel featuring IGI co-founder, Bennett Borden titled Questions and Answers: Analytics for Investigations & Compliance. The panel also featured Avi Gesser of Davis Polk, and Wardwell and Alex Ponce de Leon of Google and moderated by Alexis Clark of Charter Supporter Recommind.

IGI Co-Chair, Jason R. Baron spoke on a panel that afternoon titled The Science of Predictive Coding: How Has TREC Changed E-discovery and What Have We Learned From the 2015 TREC Total Recall Track? Jason’s co-panelists included Ralph Losey of Jackson Lewis and Jim Sullivan of Kroll Ontrack and was moderated by Emily Cobb of Ropes & Gray.

The IGI also held an Executive Dinner that evening at Mastro’s Steakhouse sponsored by IGI Supporters Viewpointe and ZL Technologies. Guests from organizations including NBCUniversal, McKesson Corporation, Baxalta, Wells Fargo and several other stayed late into the evening sharing small and big wins they had over the last year and what challenges and topics they would like to see the IGI address in 2016.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]We finished the week on February 4th with a Keynote Panel: Private Network Servers, Deleted Emails & Texts and Other Controversies in the News featuring Jason R.
