Member Profile of the Month

\r\nGreg Houston, Advice Team Manager at kCura\r\n\r\nEDRM Member since 2012\r\n\r\nEDRM Projects & Committees: Processing Specifications, Native Productions, Dataset\r\n\r\nWhy I’m an EDRM member: Through out my years in the industry, I’ve always appreciated having the EDRM as a guide. It’s great to have a respected reference point when teaching attorneys about the electronic discovery process. I have on numerous occasions referenced guidelines and process to educate people. When the opportunity presented itself to collaborate with other industry leaders, I eagerly stepped up to share and provide input. I currently am working with a team to build out processing specifications and I look forward to being a part of setting other standards for the future of this industry teaching others what I have learned.\r\n\r\n
