The increased adoption of virtual collaboration systems – like Microsoft Teams – due to the pandemic has created a new, hybrid workforce. While this massive switch has allowed organizations to operate during these unprecedented times, new threats have arisen. Cyberattacks – including ransomware – have increased by 62% over the last year. This has led the White House to declare the threat of cybercrime on-par with terrorism. While cybercriminals and hackers have become the face of these attacks, human error is actually the largest risk factor leading to an attack. In fact, nearly 95% of organizations that experienced a cyberattack or data incident last ...

Often, firms wait until all documents have been processed before deciding how review will be managed.

However, prior to implementing AI, firm leaders and professionals must take critical steps to ensure they truly understand the state of their underlying data.
