How Lawyers Can Help Keep Sensitive Data Safe from Hackers

Posted 09/11/19 1:31 PM by Sarah Brown

Keeping data safe used to be the sole job of dedicated departments within companies – typically not something lawyers were trained on.

What Makes Discovery Truly International?

Posted 07/22/19 11:00 AM by Sarah Brown

Many eDiscovery providers claim to be “international,” “global,” or “worldwide.” But many are US-founded, US-based, and at their core, US-centric. Given the unique litigation landscape within the United States, this is not unexpected – however an entirely US-centric approach to discovery work can have detrimental effects on litigation projects conducted for clients in (or doing business in) the UK, Europe, or Asia.

If providers aren’t mindful, they can easily bring a skewed perspective to their work – favoring US-centric discovery workflows, US-centric language, and a US-centric cultural approach to client relationships. 

New FATF Guidance to Affect Cryptocurrency, Anti-Money Laundering, and Anti-Terrorist Financing Compliance for Financial Institutions

Posted 07/17/19 2:41 PM by Erin Plante

FATF detailed which types of virtual asset (VA) activities (a virtual asset is a representation of currency, rather than currency itself) must be regulated and the minimum requirements it expects from regulators, which far surpasses current efforts in most countries. The guidance can be used as an aid to implement existing FATF recommendations for other financial instruments.

 

Machines vs. The Mob: Fighting Money Laundering & Terrorist Financing with Machine Learning

Posted 06/19/19 10:00 AM by Erin Plante & Sarah Brown

Consider for a moment the problems of criminals: The money they earn, spend, transfer or move – as a result of crimes committed or as part of the planning process for crimes as-yet-to-be-committed – has the high potential to raise the suspicion of law enforcement. If criminals wish to live to fight another day, they must conceal the origins of their ill-gotten gains – typically by “laundering” their money.
