Jason's Keynote will focus on "The Challenge of Cross-Border Information Governance In A Big Data World."
With data volume doubling every two years, information governance becomes more and more challenging. During his Keynote, Jason will discuss the application of predictive analytics in e-discovery to the information governance space, particularly how these sophisticated techniques work for U.S., European, and Asian based companies with a global presence. In addition, he will address whether an optimal information governance program based on the US experience can be successfully carried over in the EU given the EU's greater emphasis on privacy protections.

I am particularly keen on being part of LawTech's increasing focus this year on information governance, a topic that is only growing in importance to the legal profession."
