Data Security Concerns for Online Professionals and How to Address Them with Chris Draper, Managing Director of Trokt on The Learn to Mediate Online Podcast #124

Data Security Concerns for Online Professionals and How to Address Them with Chris Draper, Managing Director of Trokt on The Learn to Mediate Online Podcast #124

September 29, 2020

This week Susan Guthrie speaks with Chris Draper, Managing Director of Trokt and Co-Chair of the American Bar Association Dispute Resolution Section's Technology Committee about the increasingly important topic of online data security.  Chris outlines what an online professional needs to know as well as what technology exists to help you keep that all-important data as secure as possible!

As the world moves increasingly online, our pathways of communication, including negotiations, discussions and agreements, are still processed in written form but now that information is tranmitted electronically and in ever-increasing formats which may lead to untold problems in the future.  Chris Draper's area of expertise is reducing human error while using technology and he is here in this episode to help dispute resolution and legal professionals understand just what they face when communicating and conducting business online.  There are three main concerns for online professionals to consider in this arena:

  1. Is the communication effective?
  2. Is the archiving accurate?
  3. Is the retention of information appropriately permanent?

There is a new culture of communication and Chris is going to start to help you get up to date so be sure to listen to this episode!

Chris even has an amazing free trial offer for a unique "data stamping" technology that is going to get you started in getting on top of these issues so be sure to listen to end of the episode for details on how to take advantage of this offer of 100 FREE WRITES ON TROKT!!  (Hint:  The code is "LTMO")

 

More Information About This Week's Guest:  Chris Draper is an expert in reducing human mistakes when using novel tech. As Managing Director of Trokt, Chris oversees the development and delivery of technologies that help equitably resolve and avoid disputes ranging from labor relations to construction arbitration, financial compliance to special needs education. He is a regular guest speaker for dispute resolution programs across the nation; provides technical support to Department of Education and National Center for State Courts focus and working groups; and is Co-Chair of the American Bar Association's Section of Dispute Resolution Technology Committee.

Just Sign Here:  How to Memorialize Agreements in Online Dispute Resolution on The Learn to Mediate Online Podcast with Susan Guthrie, Esq. #123

Just Sign Here: How to Memorialize Agreements in Online Dispute Resolution on The Learn to Mediate Online Podcast with Susan Guthrie, Esq. #123

September 8, 2020

In this episode, online mediation expert, Susan Guthrie reviews the options for the all-important memorialization of agreements reached in a virtual proceeding.

It's a great day when a mediation or dispute resolution proceeding results in an agreement but when the process is virtual, and all or most participants are remote from each other, memorializing and executing the settlement agreement can be difficult.  After all, no one is sitting in your conference room with pen in hand ready to sign on the dotted line.  For dispute resolution professionals, it is essential to have one, two or even three options for creating, reviewing and executing documents at the ready so that the key step of memorializing the agreement is not delayed or overly complicated.  This episode gives you all the current updates and methods for getting things signed, sealed and delivered!

In this episode, Online Mediation Expert, Susan Guthrie, points out potential areas unique to online dispute resolution that can lead to unconscious bias on the part of the neutral and/or other participants in the proceeding.

Is Mediation Confidentiality a Myth? Some Thought Provoking Facts from Special Guest, Jeff Kichaven on The Learn to Mediate Online Podcast with Susan Guthrie, Esq. #119

Is Mediation Confidentiality a Myth? Some Thought Provoking Facts from Special Guest, Jeff Kichaven on The Learn to Mediate Online Podcast with Susan Guthrie, Esq. #119

August 11, 2020

In this episode, Susan Guthrie speaks with Jeff Kichaven, one of the country's top mediators and a Legal Thought Leader, about his recently published article in Law360, "What You Say in Online Mediation May be Discoverable" which is causing quite a stir in the mediation community!

For many practitioners, the idea of mediation confidentiality is a given. In fact, many mediators include a confidentiality agreement in their agreement to mediate and tout the promise of confidentiality to participants. The problem? According to experienced mediator and attorney, Jeff Kichaven, and his co-authors Theresa Frisbie and Tyler Codina in their article for Law360, "What You Say in Online Mediation May Be Discoverable", the promise of confidentiality is not one that a mediator has the power to keep and by making that promise, mediators run a risk they may not wish to take after hearing this episode. Find out what the risks are, how the rise of online mediation adds to those risks and what Jeff suggests mediators do to solve the problem, all in this episode!

Learn more about this week's Special Guest: Jeff Kichaven, is "Ranked in Chambers (USA) 2020" as one of the country's top mediators, and "Who's Who Legal" lists him as a "Global Elite Thought Leader" in mediation, one of only five in the United States and 20 in the world. He is an Honors Graduate of Harvard Law School, a Phi Beta Kappa Graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, and an Elected Member of the American Law Institute. His recent articles on the lack of confidentiality to online mediations have shaken our thinking about how we have always done things.
