Planet Data’s Howard Reissner, Esq., & Park Legal’s Joan Antokol Reveal Data Mgmt Best Practices in Bloomberg Law Reports

Elmsford, NY – January 3, 2011 – Planet Data, a global innovator in the creation and development of defensible legal technologies, services and solutions, today announced that CEO Howard Reissner, Esq. and Joan Antokol, Park Legal LLC, contributed a proactive article on e-discovery to Bloomberg Law Reports Vol. 3, No. 12 titled "Corporate Accountability for Data Mismanagement: Compliance Challenges in Data Privacy, Security, Records Management and eDiscovery."

"In light of the recently heightened sensitivity to breaches of private and confidential data, large and even small companies in 2011 will seek better security measures in order to protect their, business, financial and legal interests," said Howard Reissner, who co-founded Planet Data in 2001 and has built the company into a global data management services provider. "It is imperative that organizations incorporate data management into their compliance framework from the perspective of privacy, security, records management and e-discovery to prevent confidential data loss."

Authors Reissner and Antokol emphasize that growing enforcement in the data privacy and security areas, coupled with the increasing standards and judicial intolerance of records management and e-discovery practices that fall below the legal requirements, should send a clear message to organizations to ensure solid data management practices.

"Given the substantial risks of confidential data loss, organizations must carefully consider the expertise of the vendors it selects for privacy, data management or e-discovery assistance," said Joan Antokol, who is internationally recognized for her work in privacy and data protection. "Good practices in this area will prevent an organization from becoming the next poster child for violations in this area.."
