The primary asset of every law firm and legal organization, apart from skilled employees, is information. Lawyers deal with voluminous amounts of information daily. Ensuring that this data is identified, organized, accessible, and secure is part of records management. Often overlooked is the requirement to ensure that the data complies with legislative, regulatory, and to a lesser extent, internal policies.
Ever increasingly complex and onerous legislation regarding reporting requirements, from data breaches and OSHA and SOX to HIPAA, is driving development of robust standards for data management and breach mitigation. Law firms are no exception.
In this webinar, the panel of information management compliance practitioners and lawyers will discuss changes in code and case law that create policies affecting your firm’s practice and the businesses of your clients.
Subjects to be discussed include:
· Managing Electronic Data in a Law Firm
· Document Retention and Destruction Policies
· Changes in Laws and Regulations: Stricter Enforcement
· Legal Risk and Pitfalls
· Information Security
· Compliance and Costs
· Strategies for Data Life Cycle Management
