Lagging GDPR Compliance Efforts: According to a Capgemeni survey of 6,000 EU consumers and 1,000 executives in organizations across eight countries, 85 percent of organizations were not fully ready for the GDPR when it came online. Another survey by Netsparker, found that GDPR compliance rates were lowest in the health care and finance industry. And it’s not just the corporate world that is struggling to meet GDPR mandates. A Wolters Kluwer survey discovered that only 47 percent of law firms are fully prepared for the regulation. These levels of compliance come as little surprise to some data privacy experts, who note that because of the regulation's scope, compliance will be an ongoing, long-term process. How lenient EU regulators will be, however, is a question on many minds.

At a time when the volume and sources of data in the discovery lifecycle continues to rise, modern law departments are increasingly challenged to track and control e-discovery spend.

While many law departments have applied some tactics to control this spend, in many cases, they have only identified cost savings that are “low hanging fruit” because they lack a holistic picture of the e-discovery lifecycle. Without a complete view, even seemingly simple questions can be difficult for most law departments to answer, including: What is the exact total of e-discovery costs, and how do those costs break down at the matter level? How much data is being handled? How many documents are being reviewed, and what is the overturn (quality) rate in that process? Is more advantageous to pay for first pass review by the document or by the hour?
