H5's Julia Brickell in LegalTech News
Who’s Your New Buddy?
Changing technology (with attendant benefits and risks) is driving the need for lawyers to expand their set of BFF’s. Increased privacy regulation, cybersecurity threats, suggestions that lawyers are a weak link in data protection, and a recent focus on technology in rules of competence should serve as wake-up calls for counsel to add the CIO, IT, and a security specialist or two to their inner circle. Ultimately, counsel needs to know enough to glean what they are not technologically competent to handle and form appropriate alliances with those who have those competencies. This calls for an unprecedented level of collaboration of lawyers with in-house “techies” and, where warranted, with external experts.
