Information Governance is coming to the forefront as privacy become stricter in more and more jurisdictions. Clients are also inquiring about how their records are kept and demanding that firms put protections in place. In this podcast we will review the differences between Records Management and IG. We then delve into IG frameworks and policies and why you would want to establish these, followed by a look at client expectations. We will conclude with an overview of where to start when developing an IG framework and policy and the steps to take to put this in place.

Questions Ann will ask speaker:
1. What’s the difference between records management and information governance? 
2. What is an IG framework and associated policies and why would you want to establish these? (i.e. risk management, costs, etc.)
3. In terms of client expectations, what are clients concerned about and what do they want to see in terms of IG?
4. If a firm or corporation wanted to establish an information governance framework and policy, where would they start and what steps would they go through to get this in place?

The majority of breaches today no longer come through delivered malware as our systems have become very strong with detecting and blocking these resulting in more effort than value for the attacker. Instead, it’s easier, faster and more economical to just try and steal your password, or better yet have you provide it yourself. This podcast takes a look at the security risks that are actually derived from one of our more important security controls… passwords; and look at what we can do to minimize those risks moving forward.

Questions Dave will ask the speakers:

  1. A recent study by Verizon found that more than 80 percent of breaches through hacking involve brute force or the use of lost or stolen credentials. Microsoft estimates that there are 921 password attacks per second. We’ve been educated for years by the security industry and our awareness programs that passwords are the most crucial component to protecting our environments and our information. How is it that this sacred key to our kingdom is actually resulting in opening so many doors for attackers?
  2. NIST has taken steps to try and reduce the bleeding with their new Password guidelines and best practices which encourage passphrases of more characters, less complexity and less changes. Are these steps in the right direction to actually keeping us secure?
  3. Many security tools are now providing artificial intelligence around login requests that look to see if the member is coming from a known device and location prior to providing access. Would implementing these types of risk based controls with MFA and a passphrase by the answer to our problems?
  4. Biometrics for authentication always seemed to be the next logical step for passwords. We have our basic biometrics on devices however, those are all back supported by a password or PIN. Will we ever get to a place where we’re truly only using biometrics for all authentication?
  5. I understand that Apple, Google and Microsoft are working on a solution together that will get rid of passwords. Instead, they will just leverage the biometrics on your phone as your access code to everything. With this in mind do we just need to sit tight and all our troubles will soon be fixed?

Project management skills are essential in litigation support to respect deadlines and deliverables. Similar to juggling many balls at once and the trick is not to drop one, two, or more. Get advice from experts on managing expectations - the key to success is not always known - but the key to failure is certainly trying to please everyone.

Questions Kathy will ask speakers:
- What are some of the most difficult expectations you have had to deal with and how have you dealt with them?
- Do you have any time management strategies you can pass along? How can you effectively prioritize to meet demands?
- Can or should a plan-B be offered when a deliverable is impossible ?
- What advice would you give to someone about managing expectations?

Questions Christiane will ask Andrew:

Change management is a critical part of any successful project or initiative. With so much change happening both in the legal industry and in the world as a whole, a good change management program has never been more important, especially if your firm expects to continue with a hybrid work model into the foreseeable future.

In this podcast, we’ll talk to Sharon Ford, Change Management Manager at Perkins Coie, about how to think about change management in a hybrid workplace.

Questions that Holly will ask Sharon:

1. Over the past two years, people have gone through a tremendous amount of change. Does the pace of change in the world at large impact how we talk about change internally to our stakeholders and end users?
2. What are some aspects of change management that become more important when communicating with a hybrid workforce?
3. What are some specific issues, or ‘gotchas’, that people involved in change management efforts may not realize will be problematic?
4. A successful change management effort will always tailor the message to the audience. Has the way you think about different audiences changed in a hybrid environment?
5. If you could provide listeners with one (or two!) takeaways for putting together a successful change management initiative in a hybrid environment, what would it be?
