Legalweek New York is just around the corner, and we're excited to see what this year has in store. This is a week each year where legal industry thought leaders, technologists, and experts gather to explore the trends and technology drivers impacting the industry.
The AbacusNext team will showcase exciting new offerings in the AbacusNext booth (#220) at Legaltech. Tomas Suros, the Global Product Marketing Director for AbacusNext legal products, will share trends, observations and practical advice in a workshop panel presentation, together with security experts from NetDocuments, FTI Consulting and IBM.
About the workshop
Cloud computing is becoming more widely used than ever, mainly because of the flexibility and lower cost such technology provides. Yet concerns over security and data control have prevented wider adoption of cloud technology in the legal industry. Besides client confidentiality considerations, many firms and corporations handle and store sensitive and highly regulated data, such as IP, medical, employment, or financial records.
If your firm or organization is facing decisions on a move to the cloud, or concerned about security levels of existing cloud applications, this session is a must for your Legalweek agenda. Cloud providers will also benefit from this opportunity to hear the security concerns of law firms and corporations in attendance.
The panel will discuss security and data access challenges associated with cloud technology, and offer specific practical information you can act on immediately:
- Identify strategies legal departments and law firms can incorporate to help mitigate risk and ease client fears around data access.
- Pinpoint key safety measures cloud service providers can include in the future to help calm legal department and law firm fears.
The panel, “Preventing the Worst: A Deep Dive into Cloud Security” will take place on Monday, February 3 from 12:30-2:30 as part of the full day Workshop B – Cloud Systems. The workshop will take place in room #WB102.
