March 15, 2011 (Newswire.com) - NEW YORK, NY - The Masters Conference, an advanced legal educational experience, has announced that Complete Discovery Source, Inc. (CDS) will be a sponsor at its 2011 conference, and the company's General Counsel and eDiscovery Counsel, Matthew Knouff, will moderate an expert panel. CDS is a global provider of scalable, defensible eDiscovery solutions to leading law firms, corporations, and government agencies, and maintains one of the most advanced and secure data processing, hosting, and review infrastructures in the legal technology industry.
The theme for the Masters Conference 2011 is "Security, Privacy, and Compliance within Corporate Litigation." The three-day event will be held October 3-5 at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, D.C. Sessions will give attendees from across the globe the chance to learn eDiscovery skills and best practices from corporate and law firm thought leaders. Participants will also have access to advanced sessions on emerging issues of data security, data privacy, and data compliance systems.
Matthew Knouff, Esq., General Counsel of CDS, is an expert in the fields of eDiscovery best-practices, litigation readiness, and legal technology. He is a frequent writer and speaker on issues of eDiscovery and data security, and is a contributor to an upcoming article on Cloud Computing in the April 2011 edition of the ABA Law Journal. Mr. Knouff is a member of the Sedona Conference Working Group on Electronic Document Retention and Production and sits on the Board of Directors of the New York County Lawyers' Association's Cyberspace Law Section. He also coordinates the advanced eDiscovery curriculum for the Organization of Legal Professionals, and is the author of the book eDiscovery 101: A Comprehensive Primer for Attorneys Handling ESI in Litigation.
"Far too often I read about doom and gloom when it comes to electronic discovery: higher costs, larger data volumes, higher stakes," says Mr. Knouff. "The simple fact is that the vast majority of mistakes, sanctions, and wastefulness related to eDiscovery can be prevented if attorneys take the time to understand the process as well as the benefits offered by electronic data. The Masters Conference is an industry leading forum that presents advanced, practical knowledge regarding the intersection between law and technology. CDS is proud to be a part of it again this year."
Each year the Masters Conference provides practical CLE education for lawyers and data-oriented professionals that is delivered by an advisory cabinet of industry thought leaders. Attendees will gain practical knowledge, presented by peers, on current issues that can be applied immediately to everyday practice.
