ILTA Conference: Risk Management Sessions

With the conclusion of its annual industry conference, the International Legal Technology Association has posted several session presentations and recordings. We'll be highlighting several of potential interest to our readers.

IT and Firm Risk Management: The Crucible
IT professionals calculate risk every waking moment. They work to quantify and manage it. In many ways, lawyers are professional risk managers for their clients. However, the way lawyers practice law and otherwise behave can pose risks to their clients and their firms, potentially culminating in lawyers’ professional liability, management liability and/or an employment practices liability claim against the firm. Despite these exposures, it remains a significant challenge for IT professionals in law firms to have meaningful discussions with their lawyers about risk and to develop a more integrated approach to risk within their firms. Let's examine the approaches and methods IT professionals can use to quantify risk metrics to advance their efforts. [Slides] [Assessment Framework] [Session Recording]
