Upcoming Risk Roundtable Session: ISO 27001 for Law Firms

The Risk Roundtable Initiative is pleased to announce a special seminar on information risk and security management for law firms. The session is scheduled for September 16 and hosted by Cravath, Swaine & Moore in New York:

Over the past 18 months, corporations have increasingly mandated more stringent information security requirements for outside counsel. For IT, this often means more time spent responding to client requests and RFPs. Today several firms are leveraging the ISO 27001 standard as a strategic response.

This session will explore the “how” and “why” behind ISO 27001 for law firms and is designed both for firms interested in certification as well as those interested in information security processes and strategies employed by their peers.

  • Opening Remarks — Pat Archbold, IntApp
  • ISO 27001—What is it, why should I care and an outline of the key stages of deployment? (Andrew Rose, Forrester)
  • Law Firm Accreditation Overviews — How two global firms addressed certification and the benefits they realized (Andrew Rose, Forrester)
  • Where do you start — Real examples of strategies Cravath has deployed to respond to changing requirements (Jeff Franchetti, Cravath)
Andrew Rose, now with Forrester, previously took two Magic Circle firms through the ISO certification process. He is traveling from London to share his experience and expertise. He’ll be joined by Jeff Franchetti, CIO of Cravath, Swaine & Moore, who will describe tactical initiatives he has implemented at Cravath. Together, they will present tangible strategies and ideas attendees can use to enhance their firm’s ability to address client security requirements. Pat Archbold, IntApp Risk Practice Group leader will open the session and serve as moderator.

Attendance is by invitation only and is limited to qualified law firms and personnel. Space is limited. Please contact for more details.
