Adventures in the Pessimistic DMS Garden: 9 Challenges Security Solutions Must Address

Over the past year, we’ve seen an increase in the number of firms moving to need-to-know or pessimistic security for non-public data. The driver is simple: clients are demanding it.

It’s crucial to be aware of and understand the complete set of requirements before selecting or implementing a particular technology, says Keith Lipman, founder and president of Prosperoware. It’s even more important to understand how people actually work in law firms – unless you don’t care about adoption or compliance.
