"The automated enforcement, auditing and alerting capabilities provided by Intapp's risk management software provide vital compliance capabilities."
Brisbane, Australia and Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) July 09, 2014
Intapp, provider of the most-adopted information access management and auditing software for law firms, today announced that McCullough Robertson, a leading Australian law firm, uses Intapp Wall Builder to secure client data across firm information repositories and support its risk management protocol.
Law firms across the globe are updating their information security policies and procedures to respond to new pressures and risks. These include more stringent requirements from clients and insurers, new regulations like the revised Australia Privacy Principles, and professional responsibility requirements updated to account for the risks associated with new technologies like cloud services.
“Because risk management is core to our firm’s culture, we made a significant investment in technology that would enhance our existing client data privacy and confidentiality management practices, without disrupting lawyer productivity or client service,” said Kim Trajer, Director of Governance and Knowledge, McCullough Robertson. “With clients increasingly mandating matter-team-only internal access policies, the automated enforcement, auditing and alerting capabilities provided by Intapp’s risk management software provide vital compliance capabilities.”
McCullough Robertson is leveraging Intapp software to limit access to confidential information and prevent accidental contravention of defined information governance policies.
Intapp Wall Builder is a web-based information security and confidentiality management software application that enables organizations to centrally control and report on user access permissions across multiple applications, including document management, accounting, portal, CRM, time entry and records management systems. It also automates notifications to individuals subject to specific policies and tracks acknowledgments for compliance purposes.
Wall Builder is the most-adopted information security management software by law firms with 150 or more lawyers. According to an independent survey by the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA), 72% of large law firms using commercial software to enforce information access controls use Intapp Wall Builder.
“We’re proud to highlight McCullough Robertson’s adoption of our information security products to improve their risk management programme,” said Bruce Heaney, Managing Director, APAC. “By auditing for compliance with central policies, the firm is taking strong steps to guard client information and protect the organisation’s reputation.”
