Legaltech News published Part Five of TRU CEO Jared Coseglia's series on Cyber & ESI Certifications, titled "When Products Start Teaching Cybersecurity Process," on September 18, 2017. TRU is proud to be the certification attache to the legal technology community and will be featured in Legaltech News every month with a new article about e-discovery and/or cybersecurity certification and education available (or coming soon!) to the marketplace.

Part One of this series, “Maneuvering the Madness of Cyber and ESI Education & Certification,” examined some basic and broadly accepted industry-standard certifications that can be achieved within a year’s time or less: CEDS (Certified E-Discovery Specialist), GIAC (Global Information Assurance Certification) and RCA (Relativity Certified Administrator) programs. CEDS and RCA are distinctly e-discovery, one vocational (product-specific) and one educational. GIAC is squarely focused on cybersecurity.

Part Two of the series, "The IGP and CFSR: Transitioning Your E-Discovery Career Into a Cybersecurity One," aimed to expose two lesser-known but rapidly accepted certifications, the IGP (Information Governance Professional) from ARMA International (Association of Records Managers and Administrators) and the CFSR (Certified Forensic Security Responder) from Guidance Software Inc., makers of EnCase and the EnCE. Both certifications aim to aid e-discovery and cybersecurity professionals alike, but in very different ways.

Part Three of the series, "Mainstream Alternatives: Cyber & ESI Certifications Making Moves in a New Era," noted that choosing certifications and education to invest in continues to be challenging, but worthwhile, for legal professionals, and takes a look at two more launching this year.

Part Four of the series, "University Usage of ESI Technology Gives Rise to Alternative Career Paths for Lawyers," suggested that for iCONECT, certifying future lawyers on XERA at the university level may help solve a talent gap issue as well as increase licensing from potential buyers of the platform.

Part Five of the series, "When Products Start Teaching Cybersecurity Process," explores how the new Nuix cybersecurity training and certification points to a pivot not only at Nuix but in the ESI and cyber community at large.

TRU Tips

There is currently a high demand for and sudden drought of ESI processors.

TOP 3 Reasons For The ESI Data Processor Drought
  • Law firms have been pushing their processing to third-party vendors with greater regularity, meaning fewer data processors in the low to mid-market with law firm experience.
  • Many data processors have evolved into project managers and no longer want to participate technically in processing.
  • The squeeze on processing margins has hiring managers wanting to pay less for processing talent, but still desiring seasoned technical skills for processing analysts.

TRU Tips

Planning your annual conference spend/agenda is a critical part of your professional development.

TOP 3 Legalweek 2019 Takeaways
  • It is Legalweek, not Legaltech. The shift and focus for target audience is now lawyers, not just legal technologists.
  • There was lots of talk of “AI” but few are really using it; this event still centers largely on e-discovery providers and ancillary solutions.
  • Almost everyone on the consulting firm and service provider side of legal services was in town, and the meetings that occur at this event still set the tone for the year ahead for new and renewed business alliances.
