eDiscovery Specialist Joel Wuesthoff to Address "Big Data and the Internet of Things" at University of Florida EDRM E-Discovery Conference


Joel Wuesthoff, a senior director with Robert Half Legal's consulting and eDiscovery services practice in New York, will be joining a distinguished panel of experts presenting at the third annual University of Florida EDRM E-Discovery Conference— "Electronic Discovery in Social Media, Mobile Devices and the Cloud" on Friday, March 27, 2015. 

The panel, titled "The Four V’s and Your Fridge: Big Data and the Internet of Things (fitbit, black boxes)," will focus on the collection and review of all kinds of data. Noted eDiscovery expert and creator of the EDRM model George Socha will be the moderator. A session description follows:Computer devices are everywhere, and they don’t need a screen to run perfectly.

Welcome to the Internet of Things (IoT), where everything is linked and networked: the car, the refrigerator, work, devices everywhere. This is the world of commercial drones and smart thermostats. What are IoT implications for E-Discovery? What does the world of the quantified self, the quantified home and the quantified everything have in store for electronic discovery and privacy? That reality is now here. Our panel of thought leaders will make this new reality, and its immediate implications, come alive for you.
