Law firms have received two dramatic wake-up calls about the vital importance of data security in the last two years.

Cyber security is today an unavoidable concern for law firms and the legal sector at large, which oversees disproportionately large volumes of sensitive data and which is therefore an attractive target for sophisticated threat actors. From confidential information about mergers and acquisitions to disclosures made under attorney-client privilege, today’s law firms are inundated with data that would be disastrous if leaked, both for the results of individual cases and for these firm’s long-term reputations. Indeed, this reputational damage diminishes the very trust upon which the legal profession is predicated, jeopardizing client relationships and hindering customer acquisition. Legal organizations lose 5% of their clients following a data breach, while significant or high-profile breaches can even prompt a firm’s eventual collapse, as was the case for Mossack Fonseca in the infamous Panama Papers breach. In today’s increasingly digital business world, even the most private legal docum

AKAs can be any alternative name or date of birth used by or associated with the candidate in the past. Conducting the search on AKA names can help ensure that you do not miss records that were logged under another name, for example a maiden name or an abbreviated version of a first name. When someone is arrested, if they do not have an ID on them they’ll be booked under whatever name they give to the police. Richard could be Rick, Elizabeth could be Beth, and John Joseph Smith-Johnson could be Joe Smith. These additional names are called alias names. When we look for records, we only have the name and date of birth to go on. Today, very often the individuals arrested provide an alternate name. If you are ONLY using the current legal name, or have search limitations such as LAST NAME ONLY, you might be missing records.

Today, it’s commonplace for companies to check the motor vehicle records (MVRs) of their drivers once a year. That’s considered due diligence. But what if one driver gets a moving violation or a citation for driving under the influence three weeks after the report was pulled? It could take months for that potentially costly issue to come to light. Likewise, a driver safety policy issued annually is typically worth about as much as the paper it’s written on. There is great potential in setting high standards and creating positive driving behaviors, but this must be a continual process informed by concrete policies, shared motivation to improve, useful data, and quality leadership. Fortunately, several important practices can help companies create a better safety culture –saving money, reducing risk and legal vulnerability, and keeping employees and communities safe. Here’s how.

Employers with the budget to do so are outsourcing—often to a single vendor—leave-management tasks for the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and state and local leave ordinances, according to recently released findings from a survey of 1,203 employers conducted in 2017.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the new legal framework that will come into effect on the 25th of May 2018 in the European Union. EU regulations have direct effect in all EU member states, meaning the GDPR replaces the current Data Protection Directive and applies to all EU member states. The GDPR’s focus is the protection of personal data. In fact, GDPR is one of the biggest shakeups ever seen affecting how data relating to an individual should be handled—and it affects not just companies but any individual, corporation, public authority, agency or other body that processes the personal data of individuals based in the EU. As gatekeepers and processors of personal data, HR and People teams have a crucial role to play in preparing for this step change. The rules on how data is kept and used will become much more stringent, and it’s vital that HR and People teams become more transparent, communicating to employees exactly how their data is processed.

As 2018 comes to a close, it is critical to ensure that your organization—and more specifically, your employee handbook—is compliant with the latest legal developments on the federal, state and local levels.

For example, does a new statewide lactation accommodation law prompt the addition of a new policy to the employee handbook? Here are some of the top issues you should be aware of for 2019 when updating your handbook: 1. Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) 2. Leaves of Absence and Time Off 3.
