GLA ALA IT section meeting for the board year 2016/2017 was
held on Tuesday March 21st at two locations. One in Century
City hosted by Kameelah Hakeem at Freeman, Freeman and
Smiley and the other in downtown LA hosted by Kelly Hons
at Alston & Bird. The topic was 2017 State of IT, the Direction
of Legal IT in 2017, and was presented and sponsored by our
GOLD sponsor WAMS. Mike Powers and Ashli Lopp discussed
the top priorities for the legal industry when it comes to IT,
the Internet of Things (IoT) - the inter-networking of physical
devices, vehicles (also referred to as "connected devices" and
"smart devices"), buildings, and other items-embedded with
electronics, software, sensors, etc., that enable these objects
to collect and exchange data; Client Relation Managers that
studies show increases law firm revenue by strengthening
client relationships, remote access and AI powered analytics;
the Hybrid Cloud, where many firms are migrating to for cost
savings, efficiency and increased security.

Nilo Bolden, IT Section Chair 2016-17 with WAMS' Mike
Powers and Ashli Lopp

Thank you to Kameelah Hakeem and Kelly Hons for hosting,
to Mike Powers, Ashli Loop of WAMS for a great presentation
and sponsoring the event and to all the attendees for taking
time out of your busy schedules to come support the section
meeting. Last but not least thank you to the IT departments
at Freeman Freeman and Smiley and Alston and Bird for
helping with the smooth operations of video conferencing
between two locations. You made it all seamless.

The return one gets from volunteering for GLA is multiples of the investment.

Security was still a top priority in law firms with clients
wanting to make sure that their data was secure with
the ever imminent threats of hacking and ransomware
take overs. We also discussed LTC4 certification, legal
technology core competencies and certification that
all law firms can use to measure ongoing efficiency
improvements. LTC4 training targets attorneys and
support staff providing the skills necessary to address
professional responsibility to the firm and clients to create/
oversee quality work product, avoid risk, and maintain
confidentiality and compliance and enable the firm to
measure staff proficiency.
