Events June 13, 2017

Rimon Partner, John Isaza, will be a speaker at Legalweek West 2017 for the educational track: Information Governance Challenges and Solutions.

Legalweek is the only legal event to bring together various legal teams to explore the practical solutions needed to drive your technology, talent and business objectives forward. This event will offer five areas of focus presented as events-within-an-event to address the key issues at a tactical level: LegalOps, LegalDiversityForum, LegalSmallFirm, LegalExecutive, and Legaltech West, the largest and longest running trade show for legal technology on the west coast. This format will allow participants to strategically select content tailored specifically to their needs and make the most of the visit.

Mr. Isaza will cover the following topics:
Update on Effects of Brexit on Privacy and Data Protection Considerations – 10:45 am – 11:45 am
Now that Brexit is a reality, organizations doing business or serving customers in the United Kingdom are struggling to understand which data protection requirements they should follow. Technically, the General Data Protection Requirements (GDPR) of the European Union will no longer apply to the UK. Organizations doing business in the UK but also in EU countries are dealing with a new and confusing legal situation. In this session, a panel of experts will walk the audience through the salient UK and GDPR requirements. Based on this foundational set of sometimes disparate requirements, the panel will discuss best practices advice for clients facing the UK vs. EU compliance dilemma.

Data Disposition Strategies from the Trenches – 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm 
Despite advances in technology and legal clarifications, organizations continue to struggle with hitting the delete button on back-up tapes. This is due in part to a grave misunderstanding of where the law currently stands on the issue, as well as legitimate concerns about inadvertent spoliation or the perception that it was intentional. In this session, without naming names, a panel of experts will walk the audience through the legal methodology and thought processes used to help clients reach a studied and vetted decision to finally hit the delete button.

Social Media: Ethics and Records Considerations – 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Social Media presents a host of challenges for organizations, not the least of which involve its impact on legal ethics and records retention considerations. In this session, John Isaza will lead a panel of experts who have contributed to a book he co-authored entitled A Handbook on Global Social Media Law for the Business Lawyer, by the ABA. Contributing authors will walk the audience through legal ethics implications arising from a social media presence, best practices on how to address those ethical concerns. A related topic of discussion will be the records that could arise from social media, including best practices on how to declare, classify and manage the resulting records.
