CYBER & ESI CERTIFICATIONS, a monthly article series from TRU CEO Jared Coseglia, featured in LegalTech News

TRU is proud to be the certification attache to the legal technology community and will be featured in LegalTech News every month with a new article about e-discovery and/or cybersecurity certification and education available (or coming soon!) to the marketplace.

Part One of this series, “Maneuvering the Madness of Cyber and ESI Education & Certification,” examined some basic and broadly accepted industry-standard certifications that can be achieved within a year’s time or less: CEDS (Certified E-Discovery Specialist), GIAC (Global Information Assurance Certification) and RCA (Relativity Certified Administrator) programs. CEDS and RCA are distinctly e-discovery, one vocational (product-specific) and one educational. GIAC is squarely focused on cybersecurity.

Part Two of the series, "The IGP and CFSR: Transitioning Your E-Discovery Career Into A Cybersecurity One," meanwhile, aims to expose two lesser-known but rapidly accepted certifications, the IGP (Information Governance Professional) from ARMA International (Association of Records Managers and Administrators) and the CFSR (Certified Forensic Security Responder) from Guidance Software Inc., makers of EnCase and the EnCE. Both certifications aim to aid e-discovery and cybersecurity professionals alike, but in very different ways.

Part Three of the series, "Mainstream Alternatives: Cyber & ESI Certifications Making Moves in a New Era," notes that choosing certifications and education to invest in continues to be challenging, but worthwhile, for legal professionals, and takes a look at two more launching this year.

Be sure to read Part One, Part Two, and Part Three, and keep an eye out for Part Four!
