We had the opportunity to host thirty of the Am Law 100 firms over a two day summit in Utah to address the topics of technology and global data security. Keynoting the event were leading corporate data security experts speaking on the topics of security and compliance in the legal and professional services industries. Attendees, both NetDocuments current customers and prospective customers, discussed the challenges and opportunities around collaboration to meet the increasing security demands and audit requirements from firms' corporate clients.
"Events like this help our customers and prospective customers navigate the changing security landscape to better understand the regulation-driven audits and compliance pressures that they are seeing from their corporate client-base," said Alvin Tedjamulia, NetDocuments CTO. "The incredible attendance of leading firms and industry thought leaders highlights the need for ongoing collaboration and dialogue between law firms, their corporate clients, and the technology service providers like NetDocuments who provide an important service to meet their security, audit, and data custody needs. The insights shared during the social and networking sessions and throughout the two-day event proved extremely valuable for our customers, prospects, and NetDocuments alike."
NetDocuments' annual customer CIO Forum was combined this year with an Executive Briefing event for prospective firms that are currently evaluating the NetDocuments service. "It's exciting to see such a large group of legal professionals come together with a common goal of increasing data security through modern technology," Matt Duncan, CEO at NetDocuments, stated. "High profile security breaches, client-driven audits, and increased regulation are driving forces behind firms looking to their technology providers for guidance and solutions on how to best navigate the complexities around protecting data with best-of-breed technologies. By bringing together our customer and prospective firms along with industry experts, we can ensure we're meeting both our customers' and their clients' needs."
