Cyber & ESI Certifications, Part One

Legaltech News published Part One of TRU CEO Jared Coseglia's series on Cyber & ESI Certifications, titled "Maneuvering the Madness of Cyber and ESI Education & Certification" as the lead story in the June 7, 2017 Daily Alert. 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.

Education, and re-education, will be a critical consideration and expenditure for mobilizing a career and retaining staff in e-discovery and cybersecurity over the next several years. Many hiring managers who have precious little training budget but who boast an ambitious, eager-to-grow staff find themselves unsure which certification training to invest in.

There are many factors to consider, both as an individual or a company, when examining certification programs and plotting professional development tracks. Variables like pass/fail rates, preparation to completion time, local versus virtual learning centers, product knowledge versus process knowledge and outplacement success stories all come into play in an attempt to unify the radical divergences in educational opportunities available in today’s cyber/ESI landscapes.

Getting the basics and getting them quickly to stay competitive and relevant in either e-discovery or cybersecurity can be done. Three certifying bodies stand out as both educational (process) and vocational (product) outliers that categorically qualify as industry-standard certifications and ones 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.

TRU Tips

About 50% of roles filled by TRU in June 2020 were jobs that had been active prior to COVID.

TOP 3 Job Market Takeaways From Q2 2020
  • For most alternative legal service providers, the bottom was felt in April and May with all-time lows in net new hires.
  • The privacy job market is coming back strong, but corporations are rethinking and retooling their leadership roles/responsibilities rather than hiring/scaling their middle management staff.
  • ESI companies and law firms are running lean on talent despite rising billables. ESI mid-market staffing remains flat (on hold mostly) for project managers and analysts.
