Traveling Coaches, experts in effective security awareness, learning programs and user adoption, has been recognized by the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) as the 2018 Innovative Consultant of the Year.
This award is part of ILTA’s annual Distinguished Peer Awards program and is given to the consultant or consulting company that has had outstanding achievements in the provision of technology services in the legal environment.
Traveling Coaches was chosen Innovative Consultant of the Year in recognition of the company’s OnGuard Consulting Team, which includes team members Kenny Leckie, Sr. Technology & Change Management Consultant, Eileen Whitaker, Sr. Learning & Change Management Consultant, and Russ Mullins, Sr. Change Management Consultant. The team developed a uniquely packaged consulting service that enables legal organizations to successfully implement a programmatic approach to security awareness. The OnGuard consulting services utilize a proven methodology, tools and best practices needed to get clients’ information security programs off the ground and relevant to all firm personnel. These services coupled with our OnGuard program provide the necessary elements for a sustainable culture of security. The OnGuard Consulting Team has worked with clients all over the world to customize strategies for their information security programs and the change management plans used to implement them.
"Just knowing about security issues is not enough. Security Awareness is all about culture change, and we are passionate about helping law firms convey how firm personnel at all levels are important to the firm's security initiative," notes Leckie. "We've worked with hundreds of firms and thousands of firm personnel and continuously assess how to tie personal awareness to the firm's ethical responsibility to secure the information they've been entrusted to protect."
In 2013, Traveling Coaches was named Innovative Solution Provider for their OnGuard® Information Security Awareness Program, which helps law firms and corporate legal departments create and sustain a culture of security.
