Description: 
Corporations give their law firms more sensitive information than any other type of vendor, yet surveys show that 70% of companies do not assess the security of their firms and legal service providers. The Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC), through its 10,000 member companies, is looking to change this. Based on a new and innovative model, ACC recently launched its Data Steward Program for assessing and accrediting law firms. Developed through an industry-wide collaboration, this global program is set to be the standard in the legal industry. In this webinar, this easier and more thorough approach to assessing information security will be discussed.

Topics will include:
Why it is difficult for companies to assess their law firms today, and why firms hate the traditional security assessment approach
How the ACC Data Steward Program has developed a standard, relevant, and easier approach
How global standards such and NIST and ISO are winning out over proprietary controls – if the right controls are selected
How this model could become the standard approach across all industries
