trend also creates new and often high-profile risks. This session examines the
factors to consider in transitioning all or part of your organization's
e-discovery functions to the cloud, including complex issues that potentially
can affect your firm's security, business continuity and compliance — while
exposing clients to unnecessary liability. This session addresses ways to
avoid the possible hidden pitfalls, including:

  oKey legal considerations for moving to the cloud, including the advantages
    of risks of public vs. private clouds
  oImportant technical considerations for moving to the cloud, including
    security, 24/7 access and data privacy
  oTips on effectively negotiating service-level agreements with cloud
    providers

them now) — from 3:45 p.m.–5:00 p.m. ET

For the fourth consecutive year, corporate counsel of Fortune 1000 companies
shared their thoughts on e-discovery in the annual Advice from Counsel study.
This year's study focuses on the evolving trends that will impact the legal
