Reducing cost and risk: early data reconnaissance (UK)


Early insight into data has never been more critical to help control costs and manage risk. Getting ahead of the game – and doing so effectively – can be absolutely crucial to keeping costs low and risks mitigated when presented with an investigation, case or urgent information request.

Legal Business magazine and OpenText™ are proud to present this exciting webinar, including a panel discussion and Q&A session, designed to help in-house and private practice lawyers, compliance officers and risk professionals alike to tackle data acquisition and analysis requirements as quickly as possible.

Our expert panel of in-house and private practice legal leaders will discuss the challenges inherent in data-gathering operations, and explore some of the new approaches and tools available to mitigate both cost and risk by effective early data reconnaissance.
