Law firms have an even more difficult job than in years past when it comes to protecting themselves from cyber attacks and data breaches. They have to work with other professionals to ensure they are governing their information to maximize benefit and minimize risk. Lawyer’s Weekly brought this information to us in their article, “Information governance of utmost importance.”

Information governance is in order and it ensures that information is managed to achieve the strategic objectives of the organization by providing an information governance framework, systems and processes.

IGANZ is a think tank on information governance and aims to bring together all the different professionals dealing with information across organizations.

Collaboration across the silos of cyber security, IT, privacy, records management and information management can help secure information. This is a new approach for most laywers, because lawyers have typically been siloed and IT has been siloed.
