Already we are seeing firms scramble to prepare for the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) guidelines. When the regulation becomes a reality, it will usher in changes to every level of the law firm, impacting daily practice down to even the most minuscule tasks like editing and sharing Excel documents if they contain international client data.
New approaches to risk mitigation will emerge to guard against cybersecurity threats and IT downtime, which will prompt major cultural changes in 2018—a shift in understanding at the highest level of the law firm, not just IT teams.
