Legal Delivery Is Becoming Digitized. What Does That Mean?

The features of digitized legal providers are becoming well-defined-- they are customer centric, tech and process enabled, agile, diverse, accessible to clients in real-time, intelligent, globally branded, scalable, multi-disciplinary, and enterprise focused. Few—if any—law firms fit this description. The Big Four accounting firms, Accenture, IBM, and others certainly do. Consider that General Electric recently moved its global in-house tax department to PriceWaterhouse Coopers. Law firms should take notice. This is the next phase of legal digitization: managed legal services.

    #CyberSecurity: Recent Attacks Demonstrate The Urgent Need For C-Suite Cybersecurity Expertise

    On BULLET POINTS we feature a guest post by HPC Contributor on Cybersecurity, Chuck Brooks. This week the mainstream headlines have been brimming with news of cyber attacks impacting society and industry at every level. The legal industry could not escape the headlines and was dragged onto the front page - not as adviser but instead as victim. One of the largest, highest profile law firms in the world was snared by a broad-based cyber attack with severe consequences for day-to-day operations. Those who have questioned the relevance of cyber in the legal industry must surely now be coming around to the reality that no-one and nothing is exempt from attack. Only the right strategy, technology, awareness and people training may stand between attack and devastating consequences. Chuck knows what he's talking about. We commend reading his article.

    THE GAMIFICATION TREND IN #CYBERSECURITY – EXPERT CHUCK BROOKS TALKS THROUGH THIS EMERGING SOLUTION FOR CLIENTS

    Many organizations are learning the hard way that what they thought was secure is really not. Data breaches are an epidemic and every year of intrusion reports outpace the previous year. As a result of procrastination on cyber threats, corporate leadership has been playing catch up by procuring IT security technologies, educating their boards of liability issues, and hiring cybersecurity talent. However, deciding how to best allocate resources, focus on specific industry threats, and design prevention and contingency plans are not easy tasks. Gamification can be helpful in providing testing and simulation for a custom cybersecurity strategy while stimulating the workforce at the same time. Our Cybersecurity Expert Contributor Chuck Brooks walks through the issues.
