Information Superiority – Helping your Company Make Superior Use of Information

On February 12, 2013, President Obama issued an Executive Order focused on improving cybersecurity by improving information sharing and thus creating a framework to reduce cyber risk. As the threats continue to grow, and the chances of governmental action increase what steps companies can take to get ahead of the cybersecurity framework, and also reduce their cybersecurity risk? In these times of doing more with less, using Information Superiority to focus security efforts offers many companies a path forward to address cyber concerns.

Information Superiority is a Department of Defense doctrine that is defines as "A relative state achieved when a competitive advantage is derived from the ability to exploit an "Information Advantage". This doctrine can help companies facilitate executive decision-making by getting the right information, to the right executives, at the right time, which will help companies increase revenues, reduce costs, optimize risk, mitigate brand damage, and reduce cyber and industrial espionage risk.

Raising the Bar on Technological Competence - the Outside Counsel Tech Audit

Technological incompetence is endemic to the legal profession; and the quantity of resources wasted on busywork is shameful. D. Casey Flaherty, Corporate Counsel at Kia Motors America, has developed a countermeasure, an audit to assess the technology skills of his outside counsel. And Mr. Flaherty is working to make the audit accessible, automated, and free for his fellow in-house counsel. Very soon, his audit will be coming to a law firm near you. 

Mr. Flaherty himself has audited nine large law firms. All nine firms have failed – some more miserably than others. Of the failed firms, some simply did not secure business from Kia Motors America. Others secured business but had to accept an across-the-board rate cut – on top of already discounted rates – that will be restored if/when they pass a subsequent audit. 

Mr. Flaherty's audit is an instrument for holding outside counsel accountable for their failure to satisfy their professional duty of competence as it extends to technology. The audit was born of fear — fear of wasting company money on low value-added work. The results thus far justify that fear. But the audit is primarily an idealistic enterprise. The audit manifests the modest ambition of raising the threshold of technological competence throughout the legal industry. The ultimate objective of the audit is its own obsolescence.

Please join us as Mr. Flaherty discusses his 'revolutionary' insight that lawyers are responsible for being able to efficiently and effectively use the ubiquitous technological tools at their disposal. No matter what portion of the industry you represent, the environment in which you and your organization operate is about to change.
