Proper information governance is vital to implementing defenses against breaches and unauthorized access

Philadelphia, PA – September 19, 2016 – Prosperoware, a leading enterprise software company delivering innovative technology that’s transforming legal and professional services, today announces that its Vice President of Solutions, Ben Weinberger, will present an ILTA-sponsored panel session at ARMA International Expo: “How Security and IG Can Live Together in Perfect Harmony.”  Ben will be joined by Terry Coan, senior director for HBR Consulting, and Faron Lyons of Zia Consulting.  ARMA Live! commences Sunday, September 25th, and Ben’s session is on Tuesday, September 27th, at 10:55am.

Sprawling data collections are more difficult to protect from hackers, malicious insiders, and negligent employees. Disorganization and information silos make data more vulnerable. The first step in securing an organization’s data is proper governance, especially over confidential information. Firms can’t secure what they don’t know they have, and don’t know the value – or risk – of unclassified data.

Proper information governance is vital to implementing defenses against breaches and unauthorized access. It is no longer a question of ‘if’ but ‘when’ organizations will be hacked. The leak of the Panama Papers triggered a significant awareness and increase in clients’ demands for data to be locked-down to matter or client teams. Regulatory organizations—from the FTC and SEC in the U.S. to European and U.K. ones such as the ICO – are pursuing clients and firms, holding them liable for data breaches.

‘Need to know’ security has quickly become the standard clients expect. Legacy products with outdated architectures designed for the old paradigm of ethical walls have proven incapable of managing today’s firms’ dynamic matter and team groupings, high volumes of requests, and constant security challenges. With thousands or more client matters, firms need automated systems that enable distributed security management, to the right level: practice group, client, matter, or industry team. Without it, Risk and IT teams quickly become bottlenecks, overwhelmed by requests.

Milan InfoGov (IG) is the industry’s most comprehensive confidentiality management solution, as well as the industry’s only multi-system platform capable of securing data across all core systems including NetDocs, iManage, eDocs, Elite, Aderant, IntApp Time / DTE, Windows File Shares, SharePoint, and others.

Milan IG enables data to be compartmentalized – secured to the smallest group needed to service each matter – without the need for constant IT and Risk Team intervention. Powerful self-service features allow the Head of Risk to set policy and delegate who can manage daily matter access (down to the individual document level) – Matter Owner, Head of Risk, or Matter Team – to simultaneously meet the needs of the client and the firm.

Ben Weinberger comments, “I’m looking forward to discussing IG and security at ARMA. It is paramount that firms align IG and security policies so they complement one another and advance their strategic goals and the goals of their clients, general counsel, records managers, and technologists. We look forward to a highly engaging discussion.”
