Extract from Frank Ready's article "Are E-Discovery, Cybersecurity, Two Sides of the Same Coin? BIA Says Yes"
BIA isn’t the only e-discovery company to be stretching its wings. Mary Mack, executive director of the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS), has noticed spillover between the marketing and sales of e-discovery and cybersecurity products.
“I think it’s been percolating for a while. Our forensics community, many of them have moved into not only like fixed machine forensics or hard drives or things like that, [but] now they’ve moved into the cloud for forensics on cloud applications and network forensics, like the movement of data,” Mack said.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.

I get bombarded with all kinds of e-discovery stuff – news, blogs and whatnot. Let me tell you, you guys send the absolute best! I send it to all my partners and sales folks. I said, who are these guys? I have to get to know them better!
