Mintz Levin's Wynter Deagle will speak at the Legaletch West Conference on a panel titled, "Beyond Encryption: Protecting Your Company’s Assets & Client Confidence."
From massive breaches to fear of litigation and rising costs of e-discovery, the urge to retain large amounts of information has been tempered by evidence that holding data when not required can actively work against companies’ interests. While data encryption is a great step forward, a mere fact of storing too much sensitive client data significantly increases security risks and potential liability. How can law firms minimize the window of opportunity for attackers while enabling active communication in house and with the clients? This session will discuss how proactive ephemerality, or automatic data deletion, can help manage information security risks, support in-house and client collaboration while ensuring that no valuable communication lives beyond its useful life and intended recipients.
