With the passage of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), the identification of personal data has gained a lot of attention in 2018. More and more companies struggle with finding PII manually when it comes to Discovery and Data Breach Investigations – it is just too inaccurate, ineffective and time consuming. But there is light on the horizon: solutions like ayfie Inspector and ayfie Supervisor can support and automate these processes. We recently held a webinar on the topic “Automating the identification of PII”. This blogpost summarizes the key takeaways of the webinar.

Yes, Social Media can be a challenge. But at the same time, it offers a lot of potential to increase sales, customer satisfaction and even the business value of law firms – if it's done right. Still, many law firms don't have a solid Social Media strategy in place yet. Saying this, we are not talking about having a Facebook or Twitter Account that has some new updates every now and then. We are talking about using Social Media in a way that leads to a real Return on Invest (ROI). If you haven't started with Social Media yet – or if you are still trying to figure out how to turn Social activities into money – keep reading. This blog post provides 5 top tips for law firms to excel in Social Media. 

A lot of the elements in this article are inspired by a conference we attended earlier this week in Berlin – the Allfacebook Marketing Conference (#AFBMC). We have been a vital part of this event as we've been moderating the LinkedIn- and Facebook track for the day. Thus, we have met a lot of interesting people from the leading German Social Media community and learned how they are leveraging various Social channels to elevate their business in the B2B and B2C world.

The legal industry is undergoing major changes and the use of new technology is reshaping the way lawyers work, interact, and share knowledge. Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to perform most tasks currently carried out by humans, which has left many legal professionals concerned about their future. Yet AI it is not about replacing lawyers or the expertise they have; it’s about using technology as a tool to optimize workflows and make more efficient use of lawyers’ time and knowledge.

GDPR - the General Data Protection Regulation - has been a massive topic of conversation and controversy before going into effect on the 25th of May. The fact is that any company dealing with information of EU citizens must comply with the rules of protection of individual's data. Still, many firms continue to struggle with understanding the guidelines and making sure that they are 100% compliant. It is a challenge that involves a fair amount of budget and resources to be solved. But do not worry there is light at the end of the tunnel: Software companies have implemented GDPR specific products that offer support for streamlining processes around GDPR requests.

Last week we conducted a webinar around the topic of GDPR and demonstrated how reports about Personal Identifiable Information (PII) could be retrieved in structured and unstructured data. This blog post highlights the main talking points of this webinar.

It's been almost two months since GDPR came into effect. Since the right to access has been implemented an increasing number of companies are getting requests from employees to reveal all the data they have stored about them. For many companies, it is still a significant challenge to understand what is in their data and to find all relevant information in a short time. The reason behind this is that Personal Identifiable Information (PII) is not always stored in structured files. It could sit in unstructured documents, PDFs, emails, and archives.

“Are you ready for GDPR?” Companies on both sides of the Atlantic are asking this question as the EU’s new privacy rules come into effect. A more relevant inquiry, however, is whether they know what the rules require from them – and whether they’re taking the regulations seriously.
