The Impact of the Internet of Things (IoT) on eDiscovery
Featured as BIA’s June Knowledge Leadership Webinar

Ignatius Grande, Esq., Senior Discovery Attorney and Director
of Practice Support at Hughes Hubbard & Reed Featured Speaker

NEW YORK CITY – June 4, 2015Business Intelligence Associates, Inc. (BIA), a leader in eDiscovery software and services, announced that its June webinar will feature a discussion of the impact of the Internet of Things (IoT) on eDiscovery.

“We have had a number of our education series attendees ask us to present a program on how the Internet of Things is affecting governance framework, ESI management and eDiscovery and we were thrilled to be able to have Ignatius Grande speak for us this month. He is a nationally recognized expert in eDiscovery, a prolific speaker and author, and also teaches an eDiscovery course at St. John’s School of Law,” said Robin Athlyn Thompson, CEDS, IGP, who plans and produces BIA’s Knowledge Leadership Series of programs. “One of the key risks associated with managing information is the risk associated with discovery. With the proliferation of sources of data, and the recent case involving the request for records from a Fitbit, this is going to be a great program, and one those involved in the communities of practice working with discovery will want to be sure and attend,” added Thompson.
