Several risk related updates for those readers attending the annual ILTA conference in DC this week. Yours truly will also be on site, so please feel free to stop by booth #905 and proffer the secret risk blog reader handshake -- which I may have to actually invent one of these days...
It’s also a good way to score an invite to the Wednesday wine tasting event, which is always a conference highlight.
(A far from small contingent of Intapp staff will also be on hand to connect with you on matters including business intake, conflicts, information security, client terms/OCG management and much more.)
- Monday (4:00 - 5:00 pm): Security and Information Governance: Together in Perfect Harmony. Information governance and security shouldn't be conflicting goals. You can satisfy the goals of your clients, general counsel, knowledge managers and technologists by aligning your information governance and security policies so they complement one another and advance your firm's strategic goals. Security policies can reinforce information governance imperatives, and good information governance should be part of your security assessments. Join us as we examine the benefits of harmonizing these two disciplines, best practices and how to identify opportunities within your organization.
- Tuesday (3:30 - 4:30 pm): Reduce Risks with Effective Client Intake. An effective intake process can get clients and new matters in "the system" quicker, and it can streamline many processes and procedures and ultimately reduce risks associated with new matters. How can you reduce risks with effective client intake? Gain insight into best practices, new technologies and lessons learned from folks who have been through this complex technology and process dance.
- Wednesday (11:00 - 12:30 pm): Risk Management Unboxed. Following up on last year's lauded "Risk Management in a Box" session, we will provide expanded information about tools for proactively managing risk at your firm while still keeping the lights on.
- Thursday (11:00 - 12:00 pm): Respond Effectively to Your First Client Security Audit. Client audits can be stressful, time-consuming and disruptive. We'll be providing clear and relevant advice for those just starting to receive audits and who, like many firms, do not have dedicated information security staff. Learn techniques to reduce the time, effort and stress involved in security audits while simultaneously improving the relationship between your firm and your clients.
