Traveling Coaches Updates OnGuard Materials

DALLAS – December 7, 2016 – Traveling Coaches has completed an end to end content refresh of its wildly popular OnGuard Security Awareness Program. Launched in 2013, OnGuard is used by 99,000 lawyers and staff including 33 of the Am Law 100 firms. OnGuard is regarded as the industry standard for law firms that wish to create and maintain a culture of security.

“A round of applause to the super amazing team who worked days, nights and weekends to bring this one home!” said Cindy Mitchell, Manager of Product Development for Traveling Coaches. “They completely updated the program with a new look, new sound, new posters, new stats and new stories.”

OnGuard leverages Traveling Coaches’ expertise in user adoption and change management to create a lasting culture of security. The program incorporates strategic consulting, live events, online content, awareness commercials, posters, reinforcement messages, assessments and reference tools. Law firms receive a steady dose of OnGuard security awareness tools then leverage them to create and sustain a heightened level of awareness around security risks and best practices.

“Keeping pace with the constantly evolving threat landscape is a real challenge,” said Julia Montgomery, Senior Change Management Consultant for Traveling Coaches. “With this significant redesign and update of our award-winning OnGuard product, we’re giving law firms the comprehensive turn-key program to meet that challenge.”

Traveling Coaches was recognized by the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) with the 2013 Innovative Solution Provider award for the extensive foresight and innovation represented by the OnGuard program. State bars have also taken notice and granted CLE credit for participation in OnGuard events.

“We are honored by the multitude of law firms, large and small, that trust OnGuard to educate people on the risks and the consequences associated with their behaviors,” added Gina Buser, Chief Executive Officer for Traveling Coaches. “OnGuard is absolutely the best defense law firms can mount to protect not only their private and confidential information but also their reputations.”

Traveling Coaches Wins ILTA Award

DALLAS – September 19, 2016 – Traveling Coaches announced the company has again been recognized as the Innovative Consultant of the Year by the International Legal Technology Association. The Distinguished Peer Awards recognize ILTA peers who have delivered great business value and transformational impact through their innovations and implementations.

ILTA is an association of law firms, government and corporate legal departments founded to explore and share information on the effective use of technology in the legal profession. Members include firms of all sizes, state and federal agencies, military JAG, and in-house legal departments. Premiering in 2010, the Distinguished Peer Awards have become tradition at the group’s annual global conference, ILTACON.

“The award honors their exceptional work and innovative approaches to learning,” said Randy Mayes, Executive Director of ILTA. “Traveling Coaches are an integral part of the legal community and have contributed enormously to the success of our member firms. I celebrate their continued distinction for innovative service delivery.”

Traveling Coaches was chosen Innovative Consultant of the Year in recognition of the company’s Certified Legal Trainer Program. Developed at the request of the most forward thinking law firms, the 6-week professional development program is tailored for legal trainers, exposing them to current adult learning theory, needs analysis, learner engagement, change management, effective facilitation, and value measurement. Certified trainers are able to think outside the traditional classroom to deliver a variety of highly engaging and effective learning experiences with measurable value to their firms.

Unlike traditional law firm classroom training, the CLTP participants don’t go to class – the class comes to them. To illustrate a modern blended learning program, students are immersed in a social learning experience that connects them with instructors and other students in virtual classrooms, peer to peer discussion boards, video presentations, targeted reading, and an advanced learning portal. There is also the chance to demonstrate what they learned when students meet at Traveling Coaches’ Dallas offices for three days of face to face time.

“We constantly challenge participants to seek the most appropriate and effective solution for each unique learning opportunity,” added Eileen Whitaker, Senior Learning & Change Management Consultant for Traveling Coaches. “Graduates are less the sage on the stage and more the guide on the side. They use effective strategies which both set conditions for learning to happen and optimize learning transfer.”

This is the sixth time in the seven-year history of the Distinguished Peer Awards that Traveling Coaches has been an award finalist. In 2012 the company took home top honors as both Innovative Consultant and Vendor Thought Leader of the Year. In 2013, Traveling Coaches was selected Innovative Solution Provider becoming the first vendor to collect all three awards.

“We are so very thankful to the ILTA members and staff for their recognition of our hard work,” said Gina Buser, Chief Executive Officer for Traveling Coaches. “We have long relied on their input, feedback and support to focus the incredible talents of our consultants, developers and thought leaders. It is our pleasure to provide highly valued products and services to the ILTA community.”

The award gala was August 30 at the Gaylord National hotel outside of Washington DC.

As an official Champion, Traveling Coaches is recognized for its commitment to cybersecurity, online safety, and helping law firms create a culture of security.

“National Cyber Security Awareness Month presents a perfect opportunity for law firms to initiate a dialog with their employees about the part everyone plays in information security efforts”, said Julia Montgomery, Traveling Coaches Senior Change Management Consultant. “For those firms that have already begun that dialog, it’s a great time to ask ‘What else can we do?’ Social engineering tests, town hall meetings, even friendly competitions to identify security gaps at the firm – National Cyber Security Awareness Month is a great framework for these conversations, and serves as a reminder that this is a serious issue for all of us.”

Traveling Coaches was recognized by the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) with the 2013 Innovative Solution Provider of the Year award for extensive foresight and innovation represented in the OnGuard Security Awareness Program. Used by more than 85,000 lawyers and staff, OnGuard is the only legal specific, programmatic approach to law firm information security. Designed by and for law firms, OnGuard leverages Traveling Coaches’ expertise in user adoption and change management and incorporates strategic consulting with live awareness events, online content, awareness commercials, posters, emails, assessments and reference tools.

Traveling Coaches Offers Hosted Version of OnGuard Security Awareness Program

DALLAS – September 1, 2015 – Traveling Coaches, the legal industry’s foremost partner for learning and development, today announced hosting services for the award-winning OnGuard Security Awareness Program. As part of the fully-managed LegalMind personal learning portal, lawyers and staff can now access content and complete assessments anytime, anywhere from any mobile device or desktop platform.

OnGuard has experienced incredible growth and is now used by 78 firms and over 83,000 lawyers and their staff. OnGuard is the first and only programmatic approach to law firm information security and one of the reasons Traveling Coaches was named ILTA 2013 Innovative Solution Provider. Based on proven change management methodology, OnGuard leverages a mixture of strategic planning, communications and education tools to create awareness, encourage participation and reinforce behaviors that promote information security best practices. Short, legal-specific online modules, CLE accredited Employee Awareness Sessions, engaging posters and imagery, informative commercials, plus a variety of collateral and tip sheets combine to heighten awareness of cyber threats at work, at home and on the road. “Occasional or annual, training might fulfill a compliance obligation, but it doesn’t deliver what law firm clients arereally looking for – which is behavior change among their employees to help ensure their data and their reputation are protected.”, said Julia Montgomery, Senior Change Management Consultant at Traveling Coaches. “OnGuard’s combination of strategic planning, communications, education and reinforcement is based on sound change management methodologies which is the way to create and sustain a culture of security.”

Beyond awareness, OnGuard was recently expanded to include a full menu of information security assessment, testing and risk mitigation services. A team of accredited information security consultants, engineers, programmers and ethical hackers conduct risk assessments, penetration tests and social engineering attempts to prepare firms for more strenuous client audits and certifications. For firms lacking a full-time veteran security director, the Virtual Information Security Officer is an affordable alternative.
