High profile cybersecurity breaches at law firms have increased the need for corporate legal departments to better assess the risk preparedness of their law firm partners.
Keep your organization’s most sensitive data secure by managing IT security risk across your law firms and other legal service providers with Wolters Kluwer’s ELM Solution’s Cybersecurity Risk Assessment application. Not only does this application automate the assessment and management of law firm performance against your department’s specific cybersecurity policies, but it also provides a secure portal for assessment collaboration between your department and firms. This includes the ability to capture remediation plans and document actions, as well as gain insight to support prioritization and planning with reporting dashboards.
