MetaCompliance is eagerly anticipating the “Securing the Law Firm” conference in January 2015, which the company is sponsoring. This important networking conference provides an opportunity for lawyers to obtain best practice guidelines in relation to their data protection procedures and Information Governance within their firms. MetaCompliance will be joining a host of other high profile companies and delegates from the legal sector. The MetaCompliance approach to changing staff attitudes to corporate cyber security has been very well received by both Corporate Counsels and Professional Firms.
The conference, which is the largest gathering of its kind, attracts experts from industry to provide guidance on issues and challenges that law firms now face in conjunction with data protection, security issues and regulations. The event, which is now in its fifth edition, is the leading e-crime and information security forum aimed at IT security decision makers within the legal services sector.
MetaCompliance CEO Robert O’Brien will be addressing the audience on how data protection applies to Lawyers, while questioning their awareness levels and current approaches to policy, learning and the level of user participation surrounding complying with data protection procedures. The reasoning behind the topic of discussion at the conference stems from the challenges in protecting the huge quantity of data lawyers have to handle within law firms.
Data security is indisputably a critical area that IT security decision makers must address. The threat of a breach is a huge risk to any organsiation, particularly with the rise in cyber threat and crime and it is paramount that best practice Information Governance is implemented within Legal firms. Such firms are in jeopardy of espionage, insecure transfer platforms and breach of highly secure information which could be detrimental to any legal case. MetaCompliance recognise that existing policies and procedures within the legal sector must be analysed in regards effectiveness. During the conference, the company will provide an insight into how best practice can be gained through the use of innovative software combined with a demonstration of case studies from a variety of MetaCompliance clients across a diverse range of sectors.
