News & Media Mentions

December 6, 2021

Partner Ian McCauley will be speaking in a panel discussion on December 15, 2021, regarding the recent developments in Data Security and eDiscovery. The panel is set to discuss:

  • What happens when lawyers “slip” discovery documents into a database without timely notifying opposing counsel?
  • Is the frequency of severe discovery abuse increasing, and what is the impact on lawyers and their clients?
  • What’s the latest guidance from Delaware courts on discovery protocols and discovery objections?
  • What are the most updated best practices from the Sedona Conference, and how might they affect your practice?

That panel is a part of a full-day, 3 Credit CLE Seminar that is being sponsored by the eDiscovery and Technology Section of the Delaware State Bar Association. The topics of the seminar include:

  • With the change to a new federal administration, data security seems to be gaining traction, as Congress and regulators focus on cybersecurity, misinformation campaigns, and Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.
  • Ransomware and cyber extortion continued to wreak havoc, with even the White House providing guidance for businesses to develop resilience.
  • Virginia and Colorado joined California in adopting consumer privacy laws, and other states tackled a variety of privacy and data security topics, like biometric privacy and improvements to data-breach notification standards.
  • Cross-Border data-transfer laws continue to create challenges as businesses navigate a post-Brexit Europe and China enacts a privacy law.
  • Businesses began transitioning workers back to in-office work, navigating the uncharted waters of hybrid options and vaccine mandates.
  • The DSBA Committee on Professional Ethics issued its first opinion in ten years to address issues surrounding remote work by Delaware attorneys.
