A free webinar series from Microsoft designed to help law firms adopting Teams with a focus on data privacy for client matters is running weekly through April 7th.
Microsoft recently began a webinar series about its 365 and Teams platform with insight for law firms in particular. Collaboration and project management tools can be a boon to law firm productivity. Microsoft’s 365 and Teams products are among those discussed in our recent update on Essential Tech for Paperless, Virtual, and Remote Law Firms. Teams, part of Microsoft 365’s popular office suite, offers robust videoconferencing and VoIP in addition to collaboration and project management features. The series (running weekly through April 7th) focuses on data privacy, change management and more. From the series website:
Microsoft has developed a Legal-specific vision for Teams and Microsoft 365 that carefully considers Law Firms’ concerns and requirements around data privacy for client-matter data.
In this series, we will discuss Microsoft 365’s productivity & security platform from the perspective of law firms who we recognize have the clear-cut client-matter data Privacy requirements.
You will hear from subject matter experts across Teams, Office 365/SharePoint/OneDrive, Security, Compliance, and Windows 10 to present this proposed vision. This vision will include an Action Plan for how your Firm can start leveraging Teams & Microsoft 365 while still respecting existing client-matter data privacy requirements, to enable a modernized workplace for your lawyers and employees.
