William Ives Consulting hosted the CIO Roundtable: Law Firms of the Carolinas on July 14, 2016 in Charlotte, NC at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in uptown.
The group includes CIOs from the largest law firms based in the Carolinas while attempting to represent geographic as well as business regions. Meetings are tentatively scheduled every 4 months. William Ives Consulting facilitates the group, its activities and assumes the role of roundtable Secretary.
The group’s goal is to have a forum where law firm CIO’s can gather to learn and share best practices and discuss relevant topics pertaining to the group’s business.
On July 14th the main discussion topics were formal security awareness programs, Windows 10 trials and planned rollouts and Intranet / Extranet value and future plans. Additionally, the need to test systems, user policies and services that are designed to protect organizations against spear phishing and whaling attacks were discussed.
We were fortunate to receive a presentation on ILTA and its upcoming conference, ILTACON. The speaker provided valuable insight into getting the most out of the annual conference.
Our guest speaker for the roundtable was the CEO of Acrowire, who outlined their core services:
- Project Leadership That Ensures Project Success
- Portals That Simplify Collaboration
- Custom Applications That Are Cloud-Ready
The roundtable concluded with networking and dinner.
William Ives Consulting (WIC) continues with it’s history of support for the ALA groups throughout the Carolinas. On March 15, 2016 we participated in the Raleigh ALA Educational Conference and Partner Dinner.
