Machines vs. The Mob: Fighting Money Laundering & Terrorist Financing with Machine Learning

Posted 06/19/19 10:00 AM by Erin Plante & Sarah Brown

Consider for a moment the problems of criminals: The money they earn, spend, transfer or move – as a result of crimes committed or as part of the planning process for crimes as-yet-to-be-committed – has the high potential to raise the suspicion of law enforcement. If criminals wish to live to fight another day, they must conceal the origins of their ill-gotten gains – typically by “laundering” their money.

It's all Belgian Fries to Me: The Art of Multilingual eDisclosure (Part I)

"Un type spécial de beauté existe qui est né dans la langue, de la langue et pour la langue.” – Gaston Bachelard (1884-1962) French philosopher and poet

As a Belgian national born to Spanish parents, my love affair with languages started at a young age. I was brought up bilingual in a country with three national languages: Dutch, French, and German. This meant that I was constantly exposed to different languages and cultures. When growing up in Brussels, reading traffic signs, street names, and publicity boards displayed both in Dutch and French became second nature.

Cloud Security & eDiscovery: Separating Myth, Fact, and Marketing Fluff (UK)

Posted 04/23/19 8:00 AM by Sarah Brown

Cloud computing – or data storage in the cloud – is often touted as a cure-all for the woes of mounting ESI costs. Whether considering cloud computing for the home with storage backup services like Google Photos or iCloud, or considering cloud computing for a business process like eDiscovery, the same considerations apply: How do you know your data is really secure? How can you be sure you won’t be subject to a breach, and how can you ensure your provider doesn’t accidentally lose or delete your data – or do something illegal with it (intentionally or by mistake)?


When it comes to personal privacy, these questions are worth serious consideration. And when it comes to litigious – or potentially litigious – data involved in corporate litigation or regulatory investigations, these questions can make or break a law firm or corporation’s reputation and significantly affect profitability. A cloud provider’s security vulnerabilities could, if exploited, not only compromise the security of its clients, but also extend culpability to any of the provider’s clients who didn’t properly vet their vendors.


So what can lawyers who handle large amounts of litigious data do to ensure that their firms, corporations, and their ownreputations are secure when working with the many vendors who handle and store discovery data on behalf of legal clients?
