ILTACON 2015 went off with a bang in none other than Las Vegas! And this year the focus was on humans. For anyone who missed the conference’s 200+ educational sessions can download the material here

This fall has been absolutely full of legal events and we are only one month in. TitanFile had the privilege to exhibit at ILTACON 2015. Our candy bar wasn’t the only attraction at the booth! Experts from TitanFile, joined by our security partners from Hitachi Solutions, were on site demonstrating our recently launched zero-knowledge client-side encryption and advising attendees on secure collaboration practices.

ILTACON is a four-day educational event that draws on the personal and collective strengths of professionals working in technology within law firms and legal departments.

It also means that lawyers need to be continuously learning more about the ever-changing world of technology. The two must meet in the middle.
