New WG11 Brainstorming Group - Second Edition of Commentary on Law Firm Data Security

Brainstorming Group - Overview


WG11 is forming a new brainstorming group that will consider whether a second edition of the Commentary on Law Firm Data Security ("Commentary") is warranted because of changes in law and technology, omissions in the original product, or newly developed needs for guidance. The original Commentary, published in 2020, includes a discussion of criteria and protocols for assessing data security at law firms and a companion discussion of how organizations should communicate with outside counsel about their data security practices. The Commentary also includes model clauses for engagement letters as well as a sample questionnaire corporate clients could provide to their law firms to assess data security readiness.


Brainstorming Group - Member Expectations


Brainstorming group members will be expected to actively participate in regularly scheduled phone conferences to brainstorm on work product ideas. Members will also be expected to participate in the drafting of a detailed outline that allows a subsequent drafting team to prepare work product consistent with standards of The Sedona Conference.

In order to apply for the brainstorming group, you must be a member of WG11. If you are interested in applying for the brainstorming group, but are not yet a member of WG11, please become a member by signing up for a Working Group Series (WGS) membership.

The WG11 Steering Committee terms of Amy Keller and Jonathan Wilan expire at the end of today's Steering Committee meeting. Amy and Jonathan have been outstanding Steering Committee members and have helped guide WG11 through some significant successes during their tenure. I thank them sincerely for their service and their dedication to WG11 and The Sedona Conference. Amy and Jonathan have agreed to join The Sedona Conference Working Group Series Leadership Council, where they will be available to lend their expertise and experience to assist the WG11 Steering Committee in the future with special projects as requested on an ad hoc basis.

I am pleased to also announce that Arianna Evers, Jerami Kemnitz, and Jim Shook have agreed to join the WG11 Steering Committee for three-year terms effective at today’s Steering Committee meeting. Arianna, Jerami, and Jim were selected because of their capacity for dialogue and working to achieve consensus, subject matter expertise, their records of significant contributions to WG11 meetings and drafting team efforts, and demonstrated commitment to the mission of The Sedona Conference.

We appreciate the continued dedication and support of the WG11 members who comprise the Steering Committee. They are: Starr Drum (Chair), Kate Baxter-Kauf, Arianna Evers, Jerami Kemnitz, Colman McCarthy, Tim Murphy, Dalia Ritvo, Jim Shook, Alex White, and Chair Emeriti Al Saikali, David Moncure, and Doug Meal.
