IRM Master Class at ILTA>ON

Learn about Information Rights Management – what it is and how it is implemented – on Wednesday, 8/26/2020, at ILTA>ON.

Our CEO and Chief Architect, Seth Hallem, will be presenting an educational Master Class on using Information Rights Management to prevent data leakage at ILTA>ON. Note: this is an educational session, not a promotion of our LINK app.

What You Will Learn

What is Rights Management? This class will dive into what rights management is, how it works, and who the major providers are. The introduction to the class will discuss the goals of Information Rights Management, what specific security problems IRM solves, and some of the major challenges IRM presents, particularly focused on how to navigate the trade-off between protection and practicality with IRM technologies.

Microsoft (Azure) Information Management: We will then spend the second portion of the class diving into Microsoft’s Information Protection (formerly known as Azure Information Protection) technologies, how those are implemented both on-premise and with Azure, and how they work for documents and emails. In this section we will dive into the architecture of Microsoft’s Information Protection, the benefits/disadvantages of this architecture, and how this particular implementation fulfills the security promises of IRM outlined in part 1.

Challenges with IRM: We will also dig into the challenges with IRM, and why IRM has not yet become a standard requirement for a secure enterprise.The class will conclude with a step-by-step outline for how to get started with Microsoft Information Protection. The goal of this section is to provide enough hands-on details to allow the attendees to get started down the IRM path with a clear vision of how it works, how to get started, and how to manage the trade-offs between security and flexibility based on the protection requirements for a particular client or matter.

ILTACON ended one week ago, are you caught up yet? 🙃

LOL. I am by no means caught up. I’ve got to-do lists and piles of sorted business cards. Plenty of follow-up yet to go. How about you?

If you were there, wasn’t ILTACON fantastic this year?

A View from a Booth

ILTACON 2019 was the first year of Joy. Not only do I mean the first year of ILTA’s vibrant new CEO, Joy Heath Rush, but the first year that ILTA felt truly back on-track.

ILTACON 2019 broke all attendance records, at over 3,500 legal techies comprised of over 1,800 members and 1,700 business partners. Over 800 members were first-timers, which is fantastic. I can imagine that some of the booth locations were poor at the Dolphin. We were fortunate to have good traffic and terrific interest in our LINK app.

ILTA LegalSEC Summit 2019 Redux

We are back from a busier than ever ILTA LegalSEC Summit. People attend LegalSEC to genuinely learn how they can keep their law firms protected. This is no easy feat because cybersecurity is a moving target. While Big Law firms participate, there is great value for small and medium sized firms where there might not be a CISO. The Director of IT or network engineer might be the security department. The two or three days at LegalSEC are packed with information.

This year the well-received keynote by William R. Evanina, Director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center, was recorded. Another popular session was “Leverage These Free Resources to Up Your Security and Governance Game.” Both of these and several other LegalSEC 2019 sessions can be heard at no cost by ILTA members, here.

Heads up, save the date. Next year’s LegalSEC Summit 2020 will be June 1-3 and the location…San Antonio at the Marriott Riverwalk. If you have visited the Riverwalk you know that this is a fantastic location. Hope to see you there.

ILTA Webinar, Dec. 10th: Data Loss Prevention on Mobile with Seth Hallem

Mobile devices are constantly transacting with sensitive corporate data. Historically, most of that traffic is emails and email attachments. Increasingly, attorneys want to do more on their mobile devices, including annotating and editing documents. Much time and energy has been invested in DLP on the desktop, but what is the state of the art in mobile?
