As noted in the announcement, iCONECT may be used to import, view, search, analyze, categorize, report and print legal documents. The Legaltech software’s most recent version, iCONECT v10, comes with several useful features such as the manual review Oversight; multi-language support, and Continuous Active Learning AI and COVER.
The software suite also provides a module that “identifies, reports and redacts PII, PHI, sensitive data or keywords to comply with current and future privacy governance standards.”
PwC Canada assists firms with creating a discovery plan, and then aims to deliver it with as little disruption as possible. PwC has employed forensics and information governance specialists in more than 30 countries.
