Recently, law firm technology services group LogicForce published “Law Firm Cyber Security Scorecard,” a bi-annual report on the current state of the industry’s security preparedness.

Defining IG for Law Firms
Information governance means different things to different people. Recently, when leading industry organization IGI (Information Governance Initiative) asked its community members to help it define the term, respondents agreed that there are a wide range of activities that fall under the umbrella of IG. Those activities are by the chart below from the Information Governance Initiative 2014 Annual Report.
Starting May 25, 2018, organisations that collect and store data on citizens in European Union (EU) countries must begin complying with strict new rules around protecting customer data. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies to all organisations – regardless of their location – if they’re processing or storing personal data of EU data subjects.
However, discussions often fail to address the challenges organizations will face when it comes to securing and managing records and data after they have been collected. And this is important. GDPR introduces many new requirements for how personal information pertaining to EU citizens can be stored and processed. GDPR covers a wide range of data issues, such as the right to be forgotten; the right to data access; privacy impact assessments; data protection by design; and information security.
