Office of Michael Jerome Riley, Sr. (N/A:N/A)

Emergency management covers a surprisingly broad range of legal issues that can be better managed with software and other technologies.”

— Michael Jerome Riley, Sr., Emergency Responder and lawyer

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Emergency Management in the U.S. is surprisingly broad. A lawyer in this area will encounter issues as diverse as Grant Management and Administration, Public Assistance Programs, Environmental and Historic Preservation Requirements, Hazardous Materials, and Project Funding. Incorporating technology into a law practice in this area can make the practice more efficient and increase client satisfaction. In fact, technology may enable the practitioner to exceed client expectations.

In this first article in a series, Michael J. Riley, Sr. focuses on case management by software and other technologies for a law practice engaged in this area of law. The complete articles will be published on the blog of Michael Riley at https://michaeljriley.blogspot.com/

Technology is advancing, and the legal profession must keep up with these technological and societal changes. Many of us still remember when they first saw a personal computer, when cell phones became widely available, and when cell phones turned into smart phones that have become indispensable for many.

Incorporating technology into a law practice can make the practice more efficient and increase client satisfaction. In fact, technology may enable the practitioner to exceed client expectations. Here are a few, simple-to-implement options.

Case Management Software

Long gone are the days of paper routing slips, desktop inboxes and consecutive reviews by paralegals and attorneys during which papers and files are shuffled back and forth. With case management software, incoming documents are reviewed in a pre-determined sequence or as authorized, and files or documents are updated the same way. The staff has real-time access to documents and status reports. Important dates are automatically entered into a calendar. Case Management Software also enables legal teams to focus on a pre-set process, thus saving time and energy, and greatly reducing the stress in this deadline-driven profession. Case Management Software can also greatly reduce costs for the law practice and the clients by standardizing and accelerating document creation and maintenance.

There are many different kinds of Case Management Software, some general ones such as:

https://www.capterra.com
https://www.clio.com
https://www.mycase.com
https://www.trialworks.com
https://www.cosmolex.com

In fact, there is at least one software that is tailored for emergency management, https://www.emergency-response-planning.com/incident-crisis-emergency-management-software

SMARTPLAN™ Software is response planning and emergency management software. It can be used for different locations and is web-based. Included are preparedness programs based on “best practices”, company protocols, and regulatory requirements.

These are just a few examples, and should not be considered endorsements of any of these products. Each law practice should make sure to test them carefully before buying, and take advantage of the free test versions or consultations that many software providers offer as part of their sales process. Find the right software to fit your own needs and your client’s expectations

Research and Mobile Technology

Subscription research services such as LEXIS and Westlaw have been available to attorneys online for decades, gradually rendering hard copy law libraries obsolete. The internet has done for law what it has for every other area of modern life, providing instant access to information.

Incorporating technology into a law practice can make the practice more efficient and increase client satisfaction. In fact, technology may enable the practitioner to exceed client expectations”

— K. Todd Wallace, Attorney in New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In this second published article in his series, Louisiana-based business attorney K Todd Wallace discusses the advancements and impact of technology upon the legal profession, and how it is being utilized to enhance the client experience in terms of satisfaction and customer service. As technology reshapes all of modern personal and professional life, the legal profession is no exception.

This article focuses on research and document management. The complete article will be published on the blog of K. Todd Wallace at https://ktoddwallaceblog.blogspot.com/

As technology is advancing, the legal profession is not exempt. Incorporating technology into a law practice can make the practice more efficient and increase client satisfaction. In fact, technology may enable the practitioner to exceed client expectations. Here are a few, simple-to-implement options.

Research Efficiency

The internet has placed all of society’s information at one’s fingertips, and again the legal profession is not exempt. The speed of research has dramatically increased. An attorney can analyze a legal matter much more quickly without even leaving the desk. However, that is what clients expect nowadays – instant results.

There are a few tools that can make your job easier. For example, many cases and articles are available for free on Google Scholar (https://scholar.google.com/) or on Findlaw (https://www.Findlaw.com). Most courts post their forms and cases on the Web, reducing search time to minutes and saving you a walk to the courthouse.

Coming back to smart phones, many attorneys today use them even for legal work. A 2016 survey conducted by the American Bar Association found that 88 percent of respondents used smart phones for law-related work. A fifth of them were using research apps, and those numbers have undoubtedly surged since.

e-Subscriptions

To make your law practice more efficient, subscribing to multiple industry-related blogs and news outlets may deliver relevant information right to your email inbox. In turn, you may be able to tailor valuable information to specific clients and send them a proactive communication.

The Cloud/On-Line Repositories

There are many ways to incorporate a secure document repository in your practice. Online document management providers offer some limited client document sharing and also offer full-scale extranets as an add-on. There are many options and price points for achieving the logical benefit of client document repositories.

Web-based software enables a firm’s documents to be securely stored in “the cloud” and provide accessibility from nearly any location. The safety of such storage systems has increased greatly, and allows you to have remote access while on the road or working from home.

For example, you can set up a system whereby the lawyer uploads the documents he/she wants to share with the client and the client accesses them via a secure log-in.

Todd Wallace concludes that the benefit to the client includes having all the documents for a matter in a single repository, accessible at his convenience, with the lawyer taking responsibility for document management. One can update or replace the documents as needed, thus eliminating concerns over versions. Popular examples include www.litigationservices.com and www.alphareporting.com

Leta Capital has raised a second 50 million USD fund.

Leta Capital launched its second fund in autumn 2017, and fully subscribed the whole thaget size. The capital under management of the second fund is 50M USD.

MOSCOW, RUSSIA, October 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Leta Capital (www.leta.vc) launched its second fund in autumn 2017, and just fully subscribed the whole target size. The capital under management of the second fund is 50 million USD.

The second fund’s strategy follows the paradigm, "software is still eating up the world, and there is still a lot to be eaten", inspired by the thesis of the famous essay by the American venture capitalist Mark Andreessen, published in 2011.

Leta Capital believes that despite the rapid development of new IT technologies, as well as a greater focus on users, the penetration of actual use of excellent and effective IT solutions in the world is far from saturated. Complex legacy systems and generic solutions like Excel dominate in many spheres of business and life; moreover, “pen & paper” solutions hold their ground as confidently as before. This provides a huge opportunity for IT entrepreneurs to create a new class of easy-to-use solutions that effectively solve business and life problems, thus allowing tremendous growth in various industries that traditionally have not had the largest IT penetration.

The key investors in Leta Capital’s second fund are its Managing partner Alexander Chachava (founder of Leta Capital, serial entrepreneur, founder of Leta Group in Russia) and a group of private family offices. The founders of BrightBox, a former fund portfolio company acquired in 2017, are also among the fund's investors.
The fund will make late seed investments, Rounds A and B, with an average amount of 2 million USD in companies associated with Eastern Europe (approx. 70% of the fund) and Israel (approx. 30% of the fund), which already has sales in international markets. The fund will primarily focus on B2B software startups, whose founders want to build a large company and are themselves bright, ambitious entrepreneurs, professionals in the field of technological business.

The second fund started the investment phase at the beginning of 2018. It currently has 8 companies in its portfolio; among the announced deals are the following:
inDriver is an international passenger service using the real-time deals operating model. At inDriver, all trip conditions are determined by an agreement between the passengers and the drivers. Today, 12 million people use the service in more than 140 cities and 9 countries.
Devar is a developer of augmented reality solutions for the printing industry, working with brands like Hasbro, Rovio, etc., and with offices in the US, Europe, and China.
• Bllush is a social content delivery system for the European fashion and interior design retail industry.
“We invest in business software developers with a focus on the most promising markets, where software is dramatically growing, creating a new market or crowding out the “old” one. We are interested in business intelligence projects, big data analysis projects, projects based on machine learning technology and artificial intelligence, to optimize, replace traditional business processes or perform business robotization. We invest in companies operating in the international market, which have a product and sales in 3 or 4 countries,” says Alexander Chachava, Managing Director at LETA Capital.

Leta Capital is a venture capital firm, established in 2012 by entrepreneurs from the LETA Group, a group of successful IT companies. It targets for late seed and early growth stage investments in companies engaged in the innovative development of new IT products and services. Leta Capital is focused on long-term cooperation and is always ready to help talented teams. In 2018, Leta Capital was recognized as the winner of the Best Venture Investor award by the Russian Venture Capital Association (RVCA).

OCR Announces Next Round of HIPAA Audits Will Focus on Enforcements

Office for Civil Rights Director announces intention to use harsher investigative tools to hold bad actors accountable

The next round of examinations will be focused on enforcement and the upcoming audits will use harsher investigative tools to hold bad actors accountable.”

— Roger Severino Director, Office for Civil Rights

SANTA MONICA, CA, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In 2011, The Department of Health and Human Services’ Office for Civil Rights (OCR) began auditing healthcare providers and business associates to determine overall compliance with HIPAA’s privacy and security laws. At a recent HIPAA security conference, OCR Director Roger Severino announced that the next round of examinations will be focused on enforcement and the upcoming audits will use harsher investigative tools to hold bad actors accountable.

Enforcement for noncompliant offenders may include subpoenas, legal action, reimbursements to victims, penalties, and more. Additionally, Bloomberg Law recently reported that OCR has been ratcheting up enforcement actions over the past three years, and as random HIPAA audits occur, increased penalties will most likely result.

Jeff Broudy, CEO of PCIHIPAA states, "Overall we see less than 20% of all practices and business associates have implemented the safeguards required under HIPAA. In preparation for the next wave of HIPAA audits, we are providing all healthcare providers and their business associates complimentary risk assessments and reviews so they clearly understand what is required, and to help identify the right actions to take in case of an audit."

Under the HIPAA Notification Rule, covered entities that experience a HIPAA data breach must self-report the breach to HHS. Some practices aren’t aware of the rules, so audits will help with compliance and overall enforcement. Penalties are no longer immaterial. Average fines range from $100 to $50,000 per HIPAA violation, and are capped at $1.5 million per year.

HIPAA compliance must be addressed continuously. It’s not a checkbox or a “one and done” process. Also, the same HIPAA safeguards required by a hospital or a health plan also apply to dentists, doctors, and their business associates. Anthem’s recent $16 million dollar HIPAA fine, and Mr. Severino’s position above, should be a warning to all healthcare providers and business associates.

OCR’s recent audit results show a lack of compliance throughout the industry. Recurring non-compliance issues include:

¥ Lack of execution of Business Associate Agreements
¥ No HIPAA security risk assessment on file
¥ A failure to manage identified risks
¥ Lack of transmission security
¥ Lack of appropriate internal auditing
¥ No patching of software
¥ Insider threats
¥ Improper disposal of Protected Health Information (PHI); and
¥ Insufficient data backup and contingency planning

Common risk mitigation and corrective action plans that covered entities and business associates may be required to incorporate for compliance include:

¥ Updating risk analysis and risk management plans
¥ Updating policies and procedures
¥ Training of workforce members
¥ Implementing specific technical or other safeguards
¥ Mitigating common risks like utilizing encryption solutions
¥ Improved employee and system monitoring

Broudy adds, "HIPAA requires documented remediation plans. We find this important, yet cumbersome for many dentists and doctors. Often they don’t have the resources that hospitals and larger entities possess. Not only does PCIHIPAA provide a compliance roadmap for healthcare providers, but we also include $500,000 in cyber insurance for all of our clients. HIPAA audits, ransomware attacks, data breaches, and network security incidents happen. We guarantee our clients are covered, just in case."

AUXILIUM TECHNOLOGY LENDS ITS EXPERTISE FOR DHS NATIONAL CYBERSECURITY AWARENESS MONTH/OCTOBER 2018

In recognition of the DHS National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (October 2018), Quince Orchard High School hosted the Stop.Think.Connect presentation.

GAITHERSBURG, MARYLAND, US, October 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — AUXILIUM TECHNOLOGY LENDS ITS EXPERTISE FOR NATIONAL CYBERSECURITY AWARENESS MONTH

THE REGION’S LEADING DIGITAL MARKETING FIRM EDUCATES YOUTHS ABOUT BEST PRACTICES IN DIGITAL SECURITY

(Gaithersburg, MD. October 25) In recognition of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, Quince Orchard High School hosted the cybersecurity awareness presentation “Stop.Think.Connect”. Contributing to this presentation was Nenette Day, Assistant Special Agent with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Scott Rebein, Licensed Private Investigator with SFR Consulting & Advisory, and Ed Samuels, Chief Technology Officer of Auxilium Technology. Together these presenters provided their extensive experience and knowledge in areas of cybersecurity to help students better protect themselves against pervasive digital threats. National Cyber Security Awareness Month is a national initiative that helps build awareness among the public for digital safety and security.

Keeping Students Safe

Students attending the presentation learned about best practices in digital security as it relates to their daily use of social media, websites, and devices. The mission of the presenters was to speak directly to the specific digital threats posed to high school students and provide measures that they can take to minimize vulnerability and exposure.

The presentation developed by Auxilium Technology took a holistic approach to cybersecurity, covering issues of both technical and social nature. Topics covered ranged from social media etiquette, mobile device security, to address the pervasive threat of identity
theft to youth today.

Each presenter provided insights based on their respective areas of expertise, and in general, contributed to each topic of discussion. Special Agent Nenette Day spoke about her experience in investigating threats on social media posed by falsified accounts that prey on students and forge their identities. Private Investigator Scott Rebein spoke to the importance of online reputation management and the necessity of being aware of your digital footprint. Moreover, Auxilium Technology's CTO Ed Samuels provided knowledge in technical practices for securing your information on devices and websites, and vulnerabilities.

The presentation also featured a question and answer portion that allowed students to pose questions to each presenter. Audience members were able to ask questions of specific interest to them, such as number versus pattern lock device security. Questions about Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) and the dark web were of particular interest to audiences’ members. Students were able to engage in conversation with presenters and take away valuable information that can help them in their daily lives.

Building Awareness and Interest

Another objective of this presentation was to provide insights into the professions linked to the cybersecurity industry. Auxilium Technology supports interest in areas of study related to Science, Engineering, Technology, and Math (STEM). The growing demand for professionals in the field of cybersecurity means promising career opportunities await students who focus on those areas of study. In support of Project Lead The Way, an organization that promotes and educates students in STEM-related subjects, "Stop.Think.Connect" seeks to manifest interest in the fields that support cybersecurity. In generating interest in these critical fields, Auxilium aims to expose students to new career possibilities, and secure our digital safety going into the future.

Giving Back to The Community

Auxilium Technology has an established reputation for education and awareness in matters of cybersecurity, which includes contributions to National Cybersecurity Month in previous years. As a leader in digital marketing, Auxilium possesses extensive knowledge and experience in digital best practices. In providing this education as early as high school, students can ensure that their information and reputation is safe going into adulthood.

When asked about why Auxilium contributes time and resources to this cause, CTO Ed Samuels states: "At Auxilium, we understand the complex nature of these digital threats. Unfortunately, our youth/elderly are most vulnerable to these threats and are a focus for cybercriminals. That's why we chose to develop this cybersecurity presentation specifically for high school students. By providing education on these subjects early on, these students can take actions today that will protect themselves now, and into the future."

Leading by Example

Auxilium Technology devotes considerable time and resources to securing their client's websites from cyber-attack and information theft. These efforts include cybersecurity assessments that measure potential threats to each unique website. Moreover, through systematic cybersecurity testing, Auxilium deploys advance tools that seek out vulnerabilities and identifies them before cybercriminals have the opportunity to exploit them. Through this routine practice of cybersecurity, Auxilium has built extensive knowledge and experience that they provide back to the community through efforts such as "Stop.Think.Connect."

A COMMUNITY LEADER HELPING TO LEAD THE WAY

As the region’s leading digital marketing firm, Auxilium is committed to supporting local businesses and organizations that help this community thrive. The award-winning services, Google Certified and Google Partner status, and a member of the Cybersecurity Association of Maryland, means audiences can expect to get high-quality industry-leading advice.

Through contributions to the region’s Chambers of Commerce, networking groups, and local charities, Auxilium fulfills its mission of supporting the local community and helping everyone to thrive.

Over the last few years, we’ve watched in amazement as the market for tokenized blockchain based assets has exploded. Literally from nothing a few years ago to more than $6 billion in the first 3 months of 2018, but the reality is the majority of utility and security token offerings are nothing more than a good idea and a whitepaper.

After seeing this up close we came to the conclusion that the greater opportunity isn’t just in hypothetical businesses but real-world assets. Over the last several months we’ve extensively researched the space and discovered a huge opportunity to fractionalize hard to access assets also known as illiquid using blockchain based technology.

From a high level, an illiquid asset refers to the state of a security or other asset that cannot easily be sold or exchanged without a substantial loss in value. Some examples of inherently illiquid assets include properties, luxury cars, yachts, fine art, private jets or watches.

Though these items may have inherent value, the marketplaces in which they are sold often have few buyers in comparison to those interested in the purchase of more liquid assets. The market for luxury assets is potentially a multi-trillion dollar market. The global private equity market alone is a $4 trillion.

This is where The Luxury comes into play. Our goal is to use modern blockchain based technology to unlock a vast world of assets that were previously inaccessible.

“We need a better way to transact and own luxury assets. And today’s existing models have typically not allowed that level of access… Tokens, or digital shares, do an amazing job of not only allowing asset owners to [convert their assets into shares] but allow investors to trade them among themselves,” said Catalin Dascalu, founder of The Luxury.

The Luxury will be a fractional investment platform that will bring potential buyers together in syndicates to purchase assets that they may not be able to afford on their own. Pre-registration open today (https://theluxury.io) ahead of its retail launch in 2019. Unlike other fractional investment offerings, The Luxury is the first to give a choice of investing in any available asset, anywhere in the world. Investors can even choose to use the asset they co-own. Once they will register on The Luxury platform, investors will have the option to search and view any asset for sale worldwide. They can set up their own investor syndicate with friends, family or workmates or they can choose to join a syndicate of other seasoned investors.

Once the syndicate is full, The Luxury will purchase the asset at market price and will administrate for an annual fee of $1000 per syndicate asset owned. Regarding the release, Catalin stated: The owners of the coins can use them also as a corporate currency to pay for various The Luxury products. On the one hand, these are the typical services of the group, such as Concierge, Lifestyle Management Services, Influencers or Retail support.

The Initial Coin Offer (ICO) of The Luxury is scheduled for two months and 50 million coins will be offered. Throughout 2019, The Luxury will launch the digital market where it can be used and the portfolio to manage said crypto active.

‘’It’s time for people to be able to access more affordable lifestyle options, flexibility, and less financial risk. The Luxury’s tokenized luxury asset structure solves a problem at the heart of current investment barriers and lifestyle issues,” said Catalin Dascalu, By unlocking the value in lifestyle equity, The Luxury is creating wealth, encouraging and promoting savings and enabling investors around the world to participate in a previously untapped luxury asset class.”

The Luxury is a global concierge company founded in 2014 by Constantin Catalin Dascalu. The company is headquartered in London and operates 6 offices worldwide. The Luxury is a member-only "luxury lifestyle management service" that provides concierge services including travel bookings, restaurant recommendations, and access to events. The Luxury includes 4 brand services, including Lifestyle Management, Influencers Talent Agency, Retail, and The Luxury Academy. In 2018, the company was estimated to have about 2500 subscribers, including 12 billionaires.
