    The Third Annual Inside E-Discovery Survey (BDO Consulting)


    The third annual Inside E-Discovery & Beyond Survey by BDO Consulting examines the opinions and insights of more than 100 senior in-house counsel at corporations with revenues ranging from $100 million to over $5 billion from a variety of industries throughout the United States about changes in their approaches to e-discovery and their plans for the year ahead. The survey was conducted by ALM, an independent and impartial research firm, in the fourth quarter of 2016.

    Surveying senior in-house counsel at leading U.S. corporations, the survey offers insight into changes in organizations’ approaches to e-discovery amid an onslaught of new data pressures and predictions for the year ahead. Highlights include:

    • All about cyber. 68% state that their organization’s legal department is more involved with cybersecurity than it was 12 months ago.
    • Data privacy and e-discovery collide. 60% cite international data privacy and security laws as their biggest cross-border e-discovery challenge—and with the 2018 implementation data of the GDPR looming, 37% now see the EU as the most challenging jurisdiction for cross-border e-discovery.
    • 2017 spending plans. 62% plan to increase their investment in information governance in 2017–compared to only 39% last year, while 31% plan to increase their overall e-discovery spend.
    • Legal tech innovations are catching on. 40% of corporate counsel currently use technology-assisted review (TAR), while 30% use data analytics and visualization techniques across EDRMs.

    Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Finalized

    Extract from article by Michael Young

    On January 11, U.S. and Swiss authorities announced final agreement on the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework . The Framework defines standards for handling personal data exported from Switzerland to the U.S. and enables U.S. companies to meet Swiss legal requirements to protect personal data transferred from Switzerland. The Framework is a successor to the former Swiss-U.S. Safe Harbor framework, which was declared invalid by the Swiss data protection commissioner following the invalidation of Safe Harbor by the European Court of Justice.

    U.S. companies may participate in the Framework through an application to the International Trade Association in the U.S. Department of Commerce. Starting April 12, U.S. companies may make an application self-certifying their compliance with Swiss-U.S. Framework Principles .
