At 2:45 PM, Lance Watson, Avansic's CIO, will be discussing Litigation Holds - What IT Departments Need to Know. The basic requirements of litigation holds have been painted in broad strokes, but the specifics of implementation remain in the hands of counsel (inside and outside), IT departments, corporate management, consultants, and sometimes e-discovery vendors. The presenter will discuss practical steps, pitfalls, key components of litigation holds, as well as how not to implement a litigation hold.
