Extract from Everlaw's article "Balancing Privacy and Security: How Personal Data and Privacy Laws Collide with “Trustworthiness” Scores"
Everlaw’s VP of Security and Compliance Lisa Hawke was quoted in the Wall Street Journal on April 6, 2019 in Christopher Mims’ Keywords column.
In the article “The Secret Trust Scores Companies Use to Judge Us All,” Mims discusses services like Sift that create “trustworthiness” scores, which are used by companies to flag suspicious behavior and help guard against fraud. In compliance and risk management circles, especially in the Bay Area tech industry, account takeovers (ATO) and chargebacks are a common topic of conversation from a security standpoint. But, there are privacy considerations to prevention measures, like the “Sift score” service discussed in the WSJ article. Lisa commented on the difference between EU and US privacy laws, which define personal information differently.
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!
Kevin Glass, CEO
As a trial lawyer, day-to-day information processing is daunting for my client service. I’ve come to rely on ACEDS to keep me on the ‘edge’ of the curve on e-discovery. It’s a source I ‘ping’ ASAP.
