Accellion, Inc. to Present at LegalTech New York 2012 Conference

Law Firms Challenged to Evaluate their File Sharing Systems and Protect Legal Documents in an Increasingly Mobile World

Palo Alto, CA – January 30, 2012 –

Accellion, Inc. today announced that Paula Skokowski, will present at the LegalTech New York Conference about “Protecting Legal Documents in an Increasingly Mobile World,” on Monday, January 30 at 2:45pm - 3:30pm ET. LegalTech New York offers law firms and legal departments the ability to stay on top of this evolving industry to improve their law practice management.

During her session, Ms. Skokowski will review the challenges facing the legal industry in an increasing mobile world and explain how leading law firms are addressing the issues. The use of personal mobile devices and easy access to free cloud-based applications has introduced new data security vulnerabilities for law firms. Lawyers and legal support teams are putting confidential information at risk with the increasing use of free, dropbox-type of applications to share files with clients and outside partners. The use of consumer-grade, unmanaged cloud-based file sharing applications exposes law firms without providing adequate information security measures or visibility to ensure confidentiality and compliance.

WHO: Paula Skokowski, VP of Products and Marketing, Accellion

WHERE: The Hilton New York, 1335 Avenue of Americas, New York, NY
