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.
