  • Washington, DC-MD-VA-WV (1888PressRelease) January 10, 2012 - Intelligent Discovery Solutions, Inc., ("iDS") a premier provider of expert services in information management and e-Discovery to multinational corporations, financial institutions and law firms, announces that Managing Director Daniel Regard will speak at an e-Discovery event at the American University School of Law on Wednesday, January 11. The course name is: An Attorney's Introduction to Computers and How They Work.

    The session will focus on two areas: how computers generate and store electronic information and how attorneys use computers to organize electronic information. Regard will include:
    - A background on computers, networks, data storage and use.
    - A review of attorney obligations and potential sanctions.
    - An overview of creating and consuming data, and potential consequences.
    - A discussion of advanced issues, such as international privacy, complex data systems, and social media.
    - An introduction to data filtering, analysis and review for litigation.

    "It's a tremendous honor to be invited to speak at this type of a program and instill in this new class of graduating students the framework for understanding computers and ESI," Regard said. "More and more of our client law firms tell us they don't just use associates within their e-discovery practice, they rely on them. They've observed that the generation of attorneys graduating this year is more comfortable and facile with computer technology. While this makes sense, it turns out that many of those same associates tell us they are computer comfortable but not necessarily computer savvy. Courses like this are changing that answer."

    Regard is a nationally recognized electronic evidence and case management expert with more than 20 years of experience consulting with legal and corporate entities. A programmer and an attorney by training, Regard has conducted system investigations, created data collections and managed discovery on some of the highest profile financial investigations of the last decade. He has national and international experience advising on such issues as e-Discovery, computer forensics, database development, application software, data analysis, and repository services. He has testified on numerous occasions and been engaged as a testifying expert and a court-appointed neutral on issues of e-Discovery. He has also served as a Special Master to facilitate the resolution of e-Discovery disputes. He frequently writes about the issues surrounding e-Discovery and speaks at industry events worldwide.
