TRU Staffing Partners, an award-winning search firm representing talent and opportunities in e-discovery and cybersecurity, today announces Jared Coseglia, the founder and CEO, will be speaking at ILTACON 2017 taking place August 13-17 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The panel discussion is titled “Transition Your Litigation Support Career to Cybersecurity and Information Governance” and will take place August 14 2:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m. in conference room Jasmine E, F.

In addition to Coseglia, this panel will consist of Caroline Sweeney, global director, e-discovery and client technology services, Dorsey & Whitney; Rachelle Rennagel, e-discovery counsel, Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP; and Wale Elegbe, senior manager, e-discovery and litigation support, Sullivan & Cromwell LLP. This session will discuss the skills and experiences of e-discovery professionals that touch on the implications of information governance policies and data security issues and the transition from the litigation support world to another related discipline. It will outline additional education and certification options and will provide tips and lessons learned when incorporating cybersecurity and information governance into e-discovery roles.

This session will mark the third time Coseglia has presented this topic to the legal industry this year. The first was in New York when Legalweek 2017 was taking place; the second was at Enfuse 2017 where he was recognized after the event with an award for best reviewed ESI session of the conference.

“Transitioning your career from e-discovery to cybersecurity or IG is not only topical – it may be necessary for some to stay relevant, challenged or employed within the legal vertical over the next decade,” states Coseglia. “I am humbled to share the stage with some of the foremost thought leaders from the Am Law community whose perspective, coupled with TRU’s, will undoubtedly enlighten and enrich the careers of all those in attendance whether they are individuals hiring or looking for their next job.”

In addition to this panel, TRU is a sponsor of the Women in eDiscovery 10th Anniversary ILTA Event with ACEDS taking place Wednesday, August 16 4:30 p.m.-6:00 p.m. in Ballroom C at the Mandalay Bay Conference Center. More information about this event is available here.

Security protocols don't yet have an industry-wide standard that companies can rely upon. This may mean that there will be first-mover advantages, or it could mean that the market is so fragmented that there will be many players. This can be good for investors because it creates plenty of consolidation opportunities.

TRU Tips

Compensation for Privacy Professionals, often individuals who spent much of the early 2000s specializing in ESI, has increased notably and consistently over the last three years.

Top 3 Compensation Takeaways From The IAPP 2017 Salary Survey
  • In 2017, the median salary for privacy professionals globally is $115,000, an increase of more than $4,000 from 2015. The mean salary is higher, $123,000, reflecting an overall trend of increasing pay over the last decade.
  • In the European Union, the median salary is $95,800, a healthy climb from the median salary of $89,739 in 2015.
  • Another consistent trend is that privacy professionals holding at least one IAPP certification earn markedly higher salaries than those without one. In the U.S., those with at least one IAPP certification earn on average an additional $25,000 in annual salary ($135,000 vs. $109,400), and those with multiple certifications average more than $35,000 per year over the salary of their non-certified peers ($145,100 vs. $109,400).
