TRU/ACEDS: “The State of the Industry 2017: e-Discovery and Cybersecurity.”

TRU Staffing Partners, an award-winning search firm representing talent and opportunities in e-discovery and cybersecurity, today announces the company has partnered with the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS) to bring out a TED Talk-style presentation and town hall Q&A on "The State of the Industry 2017: e-Discovery and Cybersecurity." The event, which is open to the public, will be held at the beautiful 487-seat Auditorium in the AXA Event & Production Center at 51st Street and 7th Avenue in New York City on January 30, 2017, beginning at 6 p.m.

The event will feature an introduction and observations by Mary Mack, e-discovery luminary and executive director for ACEDS, followed by a comprehensive past, present and future state analysis of the e-discovery and cybersecurity industries with a specific focus on careers and hiring trends from TRU Staffing Partners CEO and founder Jared Coseglia. Coseglia will reveal global compensation, geographic, role definition and other employment trends and statistics from 2012 to 2015 and release the never-before-seen 2016 statistics providing insight into where the industry is headed and how it will impact individuals, law firms, corporations, government agencies and service providers. Following the presentation, Coseglia, Mack and members of the TRU Staffing Partners Recruitment Team will invite the community to provide their own insights and ask follow-up questions in a town hall-style question-and-answer session.

Following the interactive portion of the event, Complete Discovery Source, Inc. (CDS) is sponsoring an exclusive after-party reception. CDS is a leader in e-discovery, providing highly secure and defensible expertise and technology to law firms, corporations, and government agencies. Held in the atrium of the AXA Equitable Center, the reception will give attendees an opportunity to network with the presenters, hosts and sponsors as well as their community of peers.

"The information presented on January 30 will change your understanding and perception of the job market, talent availability and global hiring trends in the e-discovery and cybersecurity verticals, particularly if you are in the legal sector. TRU's analyses are derived from over five years of carefully tracking, compiling data points and intimately servicing the legal and cyber communities as staffing provider and as talent agents. This event is invaluable and will give a significant competitive advantage to anyone considering a career move or contemplating hiring professionals at their organization in 2017 and beyond," states Coseglia. "We are especially pleased to be partnering with ACEDS for this event. The association's commitment to enriching the careers of the e-discovery community through continuing education, certification and scholarship align meaningfully with TRU's core mission of empowering and improving the health and wealth of the companies and candidates we represent. ACEDS has proved to be a valuable partner with TRU and others over the years, and we have tremendous respect for their perspective and the work they do in the industry."

"Over the last two years, as I have been speaking with community members all over the country, there is keen interest in how e-discovery, privacy and security combine in a team or career plan. Those concerned with team retention and augmentation and those concerned with career mobility will find themselves well prepared to make best use of their time during the trade show of record, Legaltech New York (LTNY), by attending this kickoff event designed for interactivity and celebratory networking," states Mack.

"ACEDS is thrilled to support our gold affiliate recruiting partner, TRU Staffing Partners, as they demonstrate the pathways for e-discovery organizations and professionals to differentiate and stand out in the rapidly changing marketplace. Jared's talks are among the highest rated of our membership, and I am looking forward to seeing Mary and Jared team up for this event," states Kaylee Walstad, sales director for ACEDS.

TRU Tips

On an interview, rather than ask what will make "me" successful in this role, instead ask what has made others successful in this role in the past. Take the interview out of the hypothetical and into the historical.

Top 3 Takeaways From cyberSecure 2017
  • Companies, no matter the type or size, need to be thinking about cyber attacks; 50 percent of cyber breaches are inside threat actors.
  • Amazon Web Services (AWS) holds the largest percentage of “cloud” market share at 42 percent with the second largest being Azure, holding 14 percent of the market. Although these entities control the market, there is still a shared responsibilities model, meaning they sell the services to allow you to secure yourselves, but don't necessarily monitor your networks or notify when you've been hacked.
  • With the lack of federal regulations in place, large corporations housing sensitive data, such as Amazon, can label something an “outage.” Doing so keeps them from having to notify authorities/agencies otherwise required. By classifying the incident as something other than a hack, there is less negative impact, press, etc.

TRU Tips

Security protocols don't yet have an industry-wide standard that companies can rely upon. This may mean that there will be first-mover advantages, or it could mean that the market is so fragmented that there will be many players. This can be good for investors because it creates plenty of consolidation opportunities.
