Organized, cybersecurity breaches to companies and government agencies have grown at an alarming rate in recent months. This rapid increase has left in-house counsel and their outside law firms scurrying to minimize the risk.

At the January 2015 meeting of The Legal Innovation 2020 Working Group (LI 2020), participants provided some examples of what they’re seeking this year in order to help them do a better job in the areas of data security and information governance. The 5 tips below are the results from that discussion and are courtesy of a recent article available via the Business of Law Blog.

1. A common language that supports collaboration between corporations, law firms and third-party legal technology vendors.

2. More case studies and specific “best practices” of how other companies have achieved successful process improvement in their information governance plans.

3. An accurate and independent report on employee head count at corporations of various sizes with respect to data security and information governance teams.

4. Greater clarity on laws in various countries around the world governing how we must treat data involving both employees and customers.

5. Better insights into challenges faced by each player in the industry – the corporate client, the outside law firm and the legal vendor – so we can learn from each other and better work with each other.
