NEW YORK, July 23, 2012 -- Thought leader, Alon Israely, Esq., CISSP of Business Intelligence Associates (BIA), a pioneer company in secure cloud legal hold and eDiscovery data collections, will address the Carmel Valley e-Discovery Retreat (CVEDR).
BIA's Alon Israely will offer his expertise, as both a lawyer and technologist and a primary architect of the industry's first cloud-based eDiscovery data preservation tool, on a panel about "Mitigating and Managing the Risks Associated with the Cloud." The session will explore the challenges facing today's law firms and corporations that use cloud based applications, as well as, the necessary steps to mitigate risk before using those systems.
"Moving eDiscovery to the cloud is the obvious next step – it provides unparalleled efficiencies and cost saving benefits; not to mention scalability and access," said Israely. "The experts on this panel will address how to employ this new technology in the most defensible manner possible."
The CVEDR is a boutique eDiscovery retreat organized around panel sessions, which offer attendees invaluable experience through face-to-face interaction with eDiscovery experts.
