Mountain View (August 29, 2013) – Fenwick & West is pleased to announce the publication of IT Law Today, a new blog from Fenwick’s electronic information management chair Robert Brownstone. IT Law Today offers readers a dedicated source of commentary and perspective on legal developments in electronic information management (EIM). Never has awareness of the concerns unique to EIM been more important or more complicated. Data security breaches dominate the headlines, the rising social media industry’s rewards are accompanied by risk-management and privacy concerns and an ever-growing wealth of data is being retained and is at risk of exposure in eDiscovery. From eDiscovery to retention policies to information security and data breaches, Brownstone offers fresh actionable tips and solutions to managing electronic information throughout its lifecycle.
A nationally-recognized EIM advisor, writer and presenter, he has authored more than 50 articles on law-and-technology issues, been featured in more than 50 media outlets and delivered more than 260 presentations over the past decade. As chair of Fenwick’s EIM practice and as the firm’s technology counsel, he advises clients on eDiscovery, retention/destruction policies and protocols, information-security, privacy and computer-forensics, among other EIM matters. As the firm’s eDiscovery counsel, Brownstone also oversees Fenwick’s maintenance of, and compliance, with the protocols underpinning its award-winning eDiscovery process.
