Committee Letter

Thank you!


e want to thank the attendees, business partners, and the dedicated ILTA staff for a successful 2019 LegalSEC Summit. The education and networking from the Summit are very important for our continued growth and success in the security space. As with years past, there were many excellent takeaways expressed during the wrap-up session. We are excited to learn how attendees implement the new strategies, resources, and lessons learned in their organizations.

Please read some of Summit participants’ quotes to prove how this is the must-attend Summit for Legal Security.
“This conference always reminds me that security is always such a work in progress. You can never spend enough time on security.”

— Jim McCue

LegalSEC attendee

“I really enjoyed the introduction to Incident Response by Tom Corham. He included the audience in the conversation by polling them to guide takeaways and information the audience needed. The session with 60 things in 60 minutes; the whole concept was exciting.”

— Jim McKenna

Chief Information Officer at Fenwick & West LLP and ILTA Board Member

“The pre-summit workshop was fantastic, and the energy was high. In speaking with fellow attendees, we look forward to more similar content including the roundtable discussions that are effective.”

— Gary Berger

Director, Information Security at Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, P.C. and LegalSEC Summit Educational Co-Chair

“I thought the Women in Technology meeting was excellent. All the thoughts, input, shared experiences, and framework provided to go forward were phenomenal. The need-to-know access session was important to me, and it is a major thing and a cultural shift in the legal space. I would like to see how that develops and how to push it forward.”

— Julie Simms Holder

IT Security and Risk Analyst at Seyfarth Shaw LLP and LegalSEC Summit Attendee

“The discussions, collaboration, and educational content provide many takeaways on such an important area of focus in the legal industry. Attendees can start leveraging this knowledge right away. I found valuable information in many of the sessions I attended.”

— R. Eric Anderson

IT Director, Seyfarth Shaw LLP and LegalSEC Summit Educational Co-Chair

“We can’t do enough of this. Security is a battle we fight all the time. Our keynotes really set the week by saying, these are hard issues we are dealing with, but we can’t give up. If we keep at it, if we do the basic stuff, if we try to do new stuff and do new things, we will keep the bad guys at bay. We are going to prevail.”

— Joy Heath Rush
