Episode Summary: In this session, our podcast hosts and guest speaker, Mike Brown, will uncover the how Microsoft 365 (M365) and GDPR have changed company attitudes from a more reactive response to triggering ediscovery events to a much more proactive approach around preparation and information governance. They will also uncover how, in different civil law jurisdictions, discovery obligations differ and therefore ediscovery discussions are less relevant without considering more fundamental information governance issues, something that M365 lends itself to.

The podcast wholly devoted to pursuing the legal technology revolution. Co-hosts Bill Mariano and Rob Hellewell explore the impacts and possibilities that new technology is creating by streamlining workflows for ediscovery, compliance, and information governance.
