Electronic information pervades our society. Corporations and other organizations create, store, and utilize that information in all facets of business. Unfortunately, security can be breached and any breach can lead to investigations by various government agencies at the federal and State levels. Those investigations may lead to disputes about scope, variety and volume of electronic information to be produced.
This program will explore the role of electronic information through a hypothetical breach of a corporation’s information that leads to an investigation. It will focus on the “what, why and how” an investigation is conducted – from the viewpoint of the investigating agencies and of the corporate representatives charged with responding to the investigation. The program will then consider a hypothetical class action that parallels the investigation and how that parallel litigation interacts with the investigation.
Our faculty, which includes experienced regulators and attorneys, will address various aspects of government investigations and parallel proceedings with a focus on requests for and production of electronic information.
