Business data today is created across many channels, including email, voice, video, and social media. In many instances, communications about a single subject take place across multiple channels over time. In today’s business environment, that data holds tremendous value. Simultaneously, that data and the way it is used carries incredible risk—legal, business, financial, and even personal.

Our panel of legal and technology experts will discuss how advanced data analytics can mitigate risk to the business by identifying critical information and key players. They also will discuss how organizations are leveraging such technology to unlock previously inaccessible business value. Actual use cases interwoven into the discussion will help illuminate the value data analytics can bring to your organization.

Join this presentation to ensure that your organization is using analytics to its benefit rather than having analytics used by others to your detriment.

This program was recorded as part of ALM's Legalweek Conference on January 31st, 2019.
