10.50 Conducting internal and regulatory investigations in a corporate enterprise information environment: going beyond email and documents to get to the critical evidence found in financial systems, HR systems and other databases
eDisclosure in internal and regulatory investigations has typically focused upon email, IMs and documents. While these media may reveal the communications flow surrounding the events, the direct evidence of the activities or transactions of those events are instead likely to be contained in what is known as “structured data”: the Accounting, Financial, HR, CRM, ECM database systems. Identifying, preserving, analyzing and reviewing this structured data is typically quite difficult. Databases are designed to be readable by computers, not people. Simply running reports from those structured systems may not be enough, as the data may be in many different, unconnected systems designed only for operational, not investigative, use. Unless you can accept leaving these critical stones unturned in your investigation, you need a better way.
Navigant have brought together a panel of in-house and outside experts to discuss how to get results you need from structured data in investigations, including:
- Locating, accessing and locking down potentially relevant data to make sure it is not lost
- Analyzing and visualizing the results in a way that you can understand the evidence and present it to the investigators
- How to utilize your internal IT resources and outside consultants to get the best results, quickly
- Putting everything together into a single process that combines the structured data and the communications media so that you can create a complete picture of the matter
11.30 Getting started on the information governance journey:
Developing a legally-led information governance
- How do you get started in the journey to information governance?
- How can companies formulate effective information governance strategies with so many varying laws and regulations from jurisdiction to jurisdiction?
- Corporate law departments have evolved: how can you play a more strategic role in determining information management strategies and processes?
- Why legal must be the catalyst for information governance throughout the organisation
- Setting up an internal corporate team to enhance data accessibility and reduce redundancy and inconsistencies

12.20 Sharing the Burden: The Benefits of Multi-Party
With claimants, defendants and the judiciary continually seeking effective ways to
simplify and reduce the overall cost of litigation, the document disclosure process
is a good place to start.
The efficiency gains that can be achieved, and the cost savings generated, by
having multiple parties utilising a shared document review environment can be
significant. The legal and technical
experts on this panel will explore many facets of the concept of multi-party
document databases, including:
- What is a multi-party database, and when is it appropriate to use one
- The importance of security
- Dispelling concerns
- Practical examples of matters that have benefited from shared databases
- Cost savings and efficiency gains

How to Form an Information Governance Committee
One of the biggest challenges corporations face is getting an information governance committee started within an organization. Many recognize the value, but don’t know where to start. It can be extremely difficult to ensure that all of the necessary parties are at the table. An even greater challenge is often presented when attempting to gain buy-in from other departments - particularly in larger, siloed organizations.
RSD has identified as crucial to the process of forming an IG committee, through the following fundamental steps:
- Align with the corporate agenda
- Document and communicate
- Define your scope and timelines
- Include all stakeholders early in the process
