"Whether securing sensitive customer information, pulling transactional data out of a financial application, or assessing the content of an email exchange, data management is a critical component that determines how well financial services companies can handle compliance and legal matters," said Robert Brunner, senior managing director of FTI Consulting. "In this presentation we address critical data management pain points specific to financial services companies and provide actionable information on how to manage these challenges."

In this Webinar, speakers will address a number of key challenges within the financial services industry, including:

    -- Assessing and producing relevant structured and unstructured
       data quickly
    -- Keeping customer data secure and avoiding privacy breaches and
       identity theft
    -- Providing the right level of data in the right timeframe -- and
       knowing how expectations are different for litigation versus
       regulatory requests

In addition to the Webinar content, attendees will receive a complimentary white paper from Kahn Consulting, "Addressing E-Discovery Challenges in Your Industry: Latest Developments in the Law and Best Practices." Kahn Consulting, Inc. (KCI) is a leading consulting firm specializing in the legal, compliance, and policy issues of information technology and information lifecycle management.

"The judiciary is growing more sophisticated about data management and e- discovery processes, and demand more of companies that come before the bench," said Barclay Blair, a consultant and author with Randy Kahn Consulting. "Because financial services companies are at the forefront of today's major business litigation cases, such as subprime and auction rate securities, the onus is on them to have their data in order, or run the risk of being made an example of by an exasperated judge."
