Client Audits” —

  • “Client audits (like them or not) happen, and you have to be prepared for them. As we become ever more reliant on technology, the complexity of our systems increases; clients know this and want to be ensured that the data they provide us is well-protected. Most of us are regularly subjected to client audits, which can range from being as simple as a couple of security-related questions to the equivalent of a TSA pat-down. Similarly, outside counsel guidelines and representation agreements are becoming more and more complex, covering a wide range of insurance, governance and security requirements.”
  • “So how can we best prepare for and respond to client audits? Bring your friends (and your questions and experiences) and join us in an open mic discussion as we try to chart a better course through the chaos of client audits.”
  • Participants:
    • Matt McKinley – Chief Information Officer, Holland & Knight LLP
    • Jon Washburn – Chief Information Security Officer, Stoel Rives LLP
