How large of a group do you want on Tech committee?
Suzanne Tomatore
21:21
At City Bar we have 6 people. A mix of support staff and attorneys.
Stephen Goldmeier
22:43
When I ran a group like this at the Ohio Public Defender, we had about 6, but it’s mostly determined by which roles and departments you need to make sure to include
Brent Yosh
23:41
We have subset of our Management team that convenes on tech issues. It has 7 ppl.
Suzanne Tomatore
25:51
We have a standing tech committee meeting weekly that lasts about 40 minutes. However, we skip weeks when we are not busy. The mix of staff levels I find really important because management uses tech in different ways than frontline staff. We talk hardware, apps, improvements, changes to LegalServer with a goal of trying to get more people on staff to be tech savvy. We have a separate IT department
Christopher Schwartz
27:13
When I was at CBJC, going from meeting only when necessary to having regular tech meetings was key in adopting new tech and policies more quickly than before.
Christine Fecko

We used FaxFinder to send and receive faxes from our same dedicated fax in the office. IT set it up so I don’t know the details.
Suzanne Tomatore
59:46
Its a program and it can send pdf faxes from our fax line
Christine Fecko
59:53
Thanks Suzanne for the tip
Suzanne Tomatore
01:00:35
We are also using the MMS function in LegalServer to get clients to reply to use with pdfs or images (assuming they can print the document or receive a form by mail)

Your funders might already have user security training programs they’ll hook you up with at no cost
Christine Fecko
01:05:59
I don’t. Sorry.
Rochelle Klempner
01:06:32
a cyber security webinar for your staff is a great idea though. I went to a presentation on the dark web years ago and I still haven't recovered.
Christopher Schwartz
01:08:52
What are the top 3 policies you think every organization should take a look at implementing/revising first? I am thinking in particular of organizations that don't have dedicated IT staff with capacity to guide them.
Christine Fecko
01:13:27
I have to leave, but want to thank Ben and John. I think the powerpoint will be a great reference!
Brent Yosh
01:14:40
I really like these intranet guidelines. We actually don't have an intranet, but we do have Teams and these guidelines are a great jumping off point for thinking about how we share info on Teams.
Stephen Goldmeier
01:16:01
I second that an intranet is critical to growing your formality and clarity in technology use (and process in genera)
