Chris Dale talks to Alex Andrianopoulos of Guidance Software about a survey of in-house counsel and CEIC

Whilst at LegalTech 2014 in New York, I took the opportunity to interview Alex Andrianopoulos, VP of marketing at Guidance Software. My main purpose was to follow up on a survey recently undertaken by Guidance Software of general counsel in larger corporations.

As Alex Andrianopoulos explains, the survey indicated strong intentions by a high number of respondents to take yet more of the discovery process in-house – not just by managing the “left-hand side” of the EDRM, but by taking charge of review. The press release is here.

Cost reduction is only part of the story – growing Cybersecurity fears make corporations more wary of delegation to companies whose security standards are less adequate than their own.

Alex Andrianopoulos also talks about Guidance Software’s big annual conference, CEIC, to be held this year in Las Vegas on 19-22 May. The conference deals with eDiscovery, forensic collection and the detection and analysis of cyber threats, three increasingly conjoined issues
facing corporations.

The CEIC site is here:
