Roundtable Events

  1. Special Event – ISO 27001 for Law Firms

    Date: September, 2011

    Location: New York

    The Risk Roundtable Initiative is pleased to announce a special seminar on information risk and security management for law firms. The session is scheduled for September 16 and hosted by Cravath, Swaine & Moore in New York:

    Over the past 18 months, corporations have increasingly mandated more stringent information security requirements for outside counsel. For IT, this often means more time spent responding to client requests and RFPs. Today several firms are leveraging the ISO 27001 standard as a strategic response.

    This session will explore the “how” and “why” behind ISO 27001 for law firms and is designed both for firms interested in certification as well as those interested in information security processes and strategies employed by their peers.

    Agenda:

    • Opening Remarks — Pat Archbold, IntApp

    • ISO 27001—What is it, why should I care and an outline of the key stages of deployment? (Andrew Rose, Forrester)

    • Law Firm Accreditation Overviews — How two global firms addressed certification and the benefits they realized (Andrew Rose, Forrester)

    • Where do you start — Real examples of strategies Cravath has deployed to respond to changing requirements (Jeff Franchetti, Cravath)

  2. London Risk Roundtable – Aligning Risk and IT

    Date: Friday, December 3, 2010

    Please join us for a Risk Roundtable panel on aligning risk management and IT.

    Co-Sponsor:

    Speakers: 

    • Heather McCallum, Head of Risk and Compliance, Allen & Overy LLP
    • Janet Day, IT Director, Berwin Leighton Paisner LLP
    • Pat Archbold, Head of Risk Practice Group, IntApp
    • Neil Araujo, CEO, Autonomy iManage

    Industry developments continue to raise the profile of risk and compliance issues — particularly with information risk management, where rising client expectations, evolving professional standards and new regulations create new challenges and dangers.

    In this context, it’s vitally important that risk and IT organisations develop a shared understanding of the resources, policies and processes they can put in place to minimise firm exposure.

    This session will explore current information risk and compliance challenges facing law firms, how risk and IT stakeholders can further educate firm management and peer departments, and how to effectively make the case for increased investment in risk management.

    This Panel Will Explore Topics Including:

    • Communicating the implications and potential exposure tied to the expanding information risk landscape
    • Explaining the value and importance of the risk organization, its efforts across the firm and the importance of close collaboration with IT
    • Reviewing recommended areas and well-aligned projects for collaboration between risk and IT
    • Understanding the value of and making the case for several types of “investments” – including management mindshare, budget, staff resources and technology tools
  3. Chicago Roundtable – Making the Business Case for Investing in Risk Management

    Date: Tuesday, November 2, 2010

    Please join us for a Risk Roundtable panel on aligning risk management and IT.

    Speakers: 

    • Ann Ostrander, Sr. Director of Loss Prevention, Kirkland & Ellis LLP
    • Beth Chiaiese, Director of Loss Prevention, Foley & Lardner LLP
    • Pat Archbold, Head of Risk Practice Group, IntApp
    • Neil Araujo, CEO, Autonomy iManage

    Please join us for a Risk Roundtable panel on strategies for increasing the resources available for your risk management efforts.

    Industry developments continue to raise the profile of risk and compliance issues — particularly with information risk management, where rising client expectations, evolving professional standards and new regulations create new challenges and dangers.

    Unfortunately, risk and IT leaders don’t always have the resources necessary to put the people, processes and tools in place to best protect their firms.

    This session will explore how risk and IT stakeholders can successfully educate firm management and peer departments, and effectively make the case for increased investment in risk management.
  4. New York / Philadelphia – How Advanced Technology is Transforming Law Firm Risk Management

    Dates:

    Tuesday, May 18 (Philadelphia)
    Wednesday, May 19 (New York)

    Speakers: 

    • Pat Archbold, Head of Risk Practice Group, IntApp
    • Neil Araujo, CEO, Autonomy iManage
    • Nancy Beauchemin, President of InOutsource

    Over the past 12 months, several developments have raised the profile of risk management and compliance issues related to information management in law firms. This heightened focus results from the increased need to secure information, stricter penalty enforcement for non-compliance and the continued economic pressure to drive new business.

    From conflicts and intake, to email and records, to confidentiality management, firms are under increasing pressure to examine and update their response strategies. This session will provide law firm General Counsel, Loss Prevention Directors, and Conflicts and Risk Management stakeholders with key understanding of the role of technology in achieving compliance and mitigating risk.
