Amid an exponentially expanding universe of data, organisations are grappling with how to root out fraud, maintain regulatory compliance, protect sensitive information and mitigate an ever-expanding landscape of risk.
Inés Rubio, Senior Director within FTI Technology in Ireland, was recently named as winner of the Security award in the Relativity Innovation Awards. In this Q&A, she explains how a constantly evolving data landscape creates risk and opportunity for businesses, and what should be top of mind in the year ahead.
Risk is now at the centre of every conversation in the modern legal department. Over four consecutive years of study in the annual General Counsel Report, in-house counsel have expressed how they’ve been required to evolve and reinvent their roles. Once seen only as risk mitigators, they have become strategic business partners and have taken on an array of new responsibilities across a widening risk landscape.
Last month, FTI Consulting’s cybersecurity team, data privacy and communications experts hosted a roundtable dinner of lawyers and senior leaders from across numerous industries in Ireland. The event served as a forum to discuss the most pressing challenges relating to data breaches and cyber attacks with the stakeholders who grapple with these risks every day.
One year on from COVID, the risks resulting from long-term work from home environments and economic troubles have been widely discussed—and felt—in every major region worldwide. Data and discovery risks have been especially impacted. We gathered a roundtable of our experts from France, Germany, Ireland, and Spain to discuss these issues in detail.
Demand for e-discovery and digital forensics capabilities is growing rapidly in Ireland. FTI Consulting is stepping up to the market’s emerging needs with the expansion of experts in the region and solutions to address the increasing complexity of litigation, investigations and governance in today’s climate.

In a merger between two healthcare industry companies, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) issued a quick look as part of the second request process. Working under a compressed timeline, outside counsel engaged FTI Consulting to quickly structure a review and stabilize the Brainspace Technology Assisted Review (TAR) model so the parties could determine the risk level of overproducing and prepare the dataset for production to the FTC. A first set of documents had been submitted to regulators, with a second production due just as the COVID-19 pandemic reached the U.S. and self-isolation orders were being implemented.
In this interview, Chris Dale of The eDisclosure Information Project spoke with FTI Consulting’s Grainne Bryan about the growing acceptance in Ireland that technology must be used to manage data in dispute resolution and compliance monitoring. Ireland has a strict discovery regime, and until the 2016 discovery judgment in IBRC v Quinn, it had not been considered appropriate to use technology to identify discoverable documents. The Quinn judgment changed that and the use of tools like technology-assisted review is now much more common.
Technology has become an essential part of managing risk across high-stakes M&A.
