UBIC's Signature Seminar Sheds Light On How to Navigate An Ever-Growing Pool Of Big Data

Tuesday, July 1, 2014 - 16:20

UBIC, Inc., a leading provider of international litigation support and big-data analysis services, held another one of its Signature Seminar Series, A Predictive Analytic Approach to Investigations and Regulatory Disputes through Artificial Intelligence, in June at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.

Paul Starrett, esq., counsel and chief global risk officer, UBIC North America, Inc., launched the program with his presentation, The Challenge of Big Data and How the Legal Profession is Affected.

A continental breakfast was enjoyed by attendees while taking in the views from the National Press Club's First Amendment Room of downtown Washington, DC, on a topic very much fitting to the venue.

Christina Ayiotis, esq., cochair, Georgetown Cybersecurity Law Institute, served as moderator for the first panel, Proactive Methods are Always Less Expensive than Reactive Ones -- Strategies to Leverage Technology to Identify, Avoid and Mitigate Risks. A robust discussion took place featuring the following panelists: David Shonka, principal deputy general counsel, U.S. Federal Trade Commission; Min Hee Kim, manager, Forensic Services Practice, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP; Cheryl Scarboro, partner, Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP; and Michael Woodson, director of Cyber and Network Security, Santander Bank, N.A.

UBIC's own Paul Starrett moderated the second panel, Advanced Analytics for the Legal Profession - Big Data Challenges, Analytic Solutions and Thoughts for the Future. Offering their insights were panelists Elle Pyle, discovery counsel, McDermott Will & Emery LLP; Bennett B. Borden, partner, Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP; and Yoshikatsu Shirai, chief client technology officer, UBIC, Inc.
