Dispatches From OpenText's 2019 Enfuse Conference

Cybersecurity, legal and digital forensics experts gathered to discuss security in a zero-trust world.

This past November, software company OpenText brought together leaders from cybersecurity, digital investigations, artificial intelligence and e-discovery for the Enfuse 2019 conference.

OpenText is a leading developer and seller of enterprise information management (EIM) software, including a number of popular and cutting-edge legal industry solutions that can address compliance issues, manage information, optimize processes, and minimize costs and risks. Its software products for the legal space include Records Management, Content Suite Platform, Contract Center, Decisiv, Axcelerate, Magellan, File Intelligence, Insight, Legal Hold, eDOCS and eDOCS Defense, and EnCase (including Endpoint Security, Risk Manager and eDiscovery).

Enfuse 2019 attendees had a unique opportunity to learn about the latest OpenText updates in information security, e-discovery, artificial intelligence and forensic investigations, as well as to update their skills with hands-on training at more than 100 labs. Areas of interest included mobility, the internet of things, information governance, forensics, e-discovery, legal document management and threat hunting. Speaking engagements by industry experts provided further learning opportunities, including discussions about the latest trends in EIM, as well as best practices and techniques.

At the 2019 event, the keynote address was given by OpenText CEO and CTO Mark Barrenechea, and the event was brought to a close by James Clapper, former director of national intelligence, who discussed the scope and scale of cyberthreats to U.S. national and economic security.

Enfuse, featuring a unique blend of technologies, disciplines and knowledge, brings together experts in the cybersecurity, legal and digital forensics fields to share ideas and shape a secure future.

“Conventional approaches are no longer sufficient to secure the modern enterprise in Industry 4.0,” said Barrenechea. “For information to remain a strategic advantage, it must be protected. Enfuse is our opportunity to convene leaders from the information security, legal and law-enforcement industries to share modern approaches to security that are effective in today’s zero-trust world.”

Indeed, Enfuse is the only conference featuring this blend of technologies, disciplines and knowledge— where experts in the fields of cybersecurity, legal and digital forensics convene to share ideas and shape the future.

CCBJ was proud to be in attendance at the 2019 conference, where we conducted a series of wideranging interviews with key members of the OpenText organization, including Hope Swancy-Haslam, senior director; Steve Davis, digital discovery group principal; Adam Kuhn, director of product marketing; Rachel Teisch, senior director of product marketing; and Andrew Teichholz, global industry strategist for the legal division.

Enfuse is an annual conference that will be part of OpenText Enterprise World in 2020, and CCBJ will be providing updates about the 2020 conference, and how our readers can take advantage of this unique opportunity, as more information becomes available.
