Are you aware that 53 million Americans—that’s 34 percent of the U.S. workforce—are working on contract? Electronic discovery is not immune from this trend. In fact, e-discovery is aggressively moving toward an increased adoption of contract staffing augmentation around the globe.

As a 2016 and 2017 National Sponsor of WiE, we at TRU want you to be aware of the top trends in e-discovery and cybersecurity. The shift to contract staffing for e-discovery project managers, analysts, forensic examiners and more has impacted the market dynamically over the last several years. TRU’s founder and CEO, Jared Coseglia, has written a three-part series published in Legaltech News that is the blueprint for why, when and how the Contract Staffing Revolution can and will have an effect on your company and career.

    TRU Tips

    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.

    Top 3 Cybersecurity Investment Stats For 2017
    • Venture capital firms invested $3.1 billion in nearly 300 cybersecurity start-ups in 2016.

    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).
