Beginning March 29, 2012, I will be joining 1SecureAudit in a new four part briefing series designed for in-house counsel on automating the management of legal risk. This series focuses on four risk areas where technology and best practices in managing risk can be innovatively applied to reduce the likelihood of adverse events. The remaining briefings are scheduled once per month during the next quarter. Together, these briefings will introduce a model for building a legal risk management program that works in the 21st century.
The first briefing is Managing the Legal Risks of Outside Counsel. Many corporate lawyers presume that their law firms know how to manage and protect digital information, including the sensitive records that may serve as evidence in lawsuits and government investigations. But do law firms really do the right thing? How can corporations better address the legal and business risks that exist when outside counsel is entrusted with valuable corporate records?
Those attending this webinar will walk away with a detailed RitterMap™ that presents a structure for conducting a dialogue with outside law firms on how the firms implement modern information security management practices, as well as a detailed checklist of issues to be addressed in the engagement letters under which a law firm is employed. Attendees will also receive a discount coupon for a future 1SecureAudit eDiscovery Survival Executive Briefing and Workshop.
Registration for each webinar and access to further information about the series can be done here.
