Shook, Hardy & Bacon Partner Patrick Oot moderated a panel at the Legalweek West conference June 12-13, 2017, in San Francisco, California.

Titled “Forensics 2.0”, the panel discussed digital forensics as they relate to corporate compliance and government investigations, as well as its impact on civil litigation. The panel included U.S. Magistrate Judge for the Northern District of California Elizabeth Laporte; Peter Day, vice president of privacy and data security counsel for Bank of the West; Kimberly Quan, chief operating officer and vice president of information governance for Dragon Discovery; and Jason Fry, a senior forensics expert Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.

In an interview with Legaltech News, Oot discussed the importance of understanding our digital footprint, noting, “We leave so many computer footprints where we go. As more and more information moves to enterprise systems and the cloud, digital investigations go beyond to the hard drive of the old days”.
