ACC Data Steward Program: Evaluating Law Firm Security

Corporations give their law firms more sensitive information than any other type of vendor. Yet surveys show that 70% of companies do not assess the security of their firms and legal service providers. The Association of Corporate Counsel through its 10,000 member companies is looking to change this. Based on a new and innovative model, ACC recently launched its Data Steward Program for assessing and accrediting law firms. Developed through an industry-wide collaboration, this global program is set to be the standard in the legal industry.
