Simpson Associates and IBM have been working with a number of law firms, who are telling us that they have difficulty managing their data and providing better information, to relevant users from the many disparate data systems within the organisation.
Additionally, GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) will be formally adopted in 2018 to make Europe fit for the digital age. It forms a single set of rules across the EU whereby consumers have the right; to be forgotten, to know what information is stored and to the protection of their personal data. Failure to show compliance will result in fines of up to 20m Euros or 4% of annual turnover, whichever is the highest.
In light of the GDPR, many of our Legal clients have been speaking with us as they look to ensure the right level of data governance is applied to reduce the risks introduced by the new law.
Join Simpson Associates and IBM for a 2-part legal round table event on the 15th September 2016 at 200 Aldersgate, St Paul’s, London as we discuss how Law firms can improve their Information Management and Data Governance.
The roundtable will be split into a morning and afternoon sessions. Delegates are welcome to join us for either session or both.
The morning session will cover how Law firms can provide reliable consistent, timely information to their fee earners and key stake holders in order for them to do their job better. In this session we will be joined by Paul Jenkins, Head of Quality and Change at Holman Fenwick Willan, who will discuss how they have set about improving both their planning, budgeting & forecasting and their business reporting and analysis utilising IBM technology.
In the afternoon we will be joined by Greg Campbell, Information Lifecycle Governance and E-discovery Legal Consultant at IBM. Greg will discuss the current steps Law firms need consider, in order to reduce the risks by the imminent GDPR legislation.
