New data breach notification laws are coming into place 22 February

From 22 February 2018 new data breach notification laws (the Notifiable Data Breaches scheme) will come into effect requiring businesses to notify the Australian Information Commissioner and all the affected parties if there is a data breach that is likely to result in harm. Please refer to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner to see if these regulations apply to your organisation.

Data breaches include third party access such as hackers, unauthorised employees accessing or disclosing sensitive data, loss of unsecured storage devices such as laptops, backup technology and USB devices and accidental disclosure by staff. For more information about the new laws and how they may affect your organisation refer to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner.

How can ACP Solutions help secure your iManage environment?

Continuous monitoring and alerts

One of the many capabilities of iManage Threat Manager is the ability to identify behavioural trends and to notify your team in the event of a deviation from normal behaviour.

Key benefits:
• Detect sophisticated threats from internal or external actors
• Reduce the risk of data breaches
• Accelerate time to investigate fraudulent behaviour
• Reduce false positives, ensuring that precious resources are spent on the alerts that are most likely to be fraudulent

Something that came across my desk this morning that is interesting and to some degree something that we all need to watch out for.  It is not specific to iManage.

Microsoft has finally admitted what was obvious to everyone else, that the DDE part of Office is dangerous and should be disabled.
The latest patches have finally provided a way to disable the DDE feature in Office, either completely or in part.  Something that’s looooong overdue.
We all know that the older releases of iManage use DDE (pre Work 10) within the application to open, save and print documents.  This change will affect office 2016, 2013, 2010 and 2007.  This was delivered via the December 2017 security updates for Office.


The following information is an extract from a publication from the iManage forum posted on 12th January 2017.  Within this document there is information that is interesting to both existing iManage users and people that are considering engaging the iManage product as a solution.

Target release: January 25, 2017

Happy New Year

Now that we have said good bye to 2016 and welcomed in 2017 we would like to recap on a few items you may have missed during December.


We started the week thinking intelledox Infiniti is a great product for document generation with outward facing Web forms.  Now, having completed Infiniti Certification ACP has a deeper understanding that the product is so much more.  It is hard to imagine a firm or business that would not benefit from the integration options, workflow functions, flexibility on mobile devices and document generation capabilities.


ACP Solutions attended an interesting product launch last night for small to medium firms that require a process for managing and executing internal (and potentially external) procedures.

What we saw was impressive.  The company define their product as:  […]

We had an email from Mailguard yesterday that said the following:

I couldn’t be more delighted to share with you part of a speech from The Hon. Malcolm Turnbull MP, Prime Minister of Australia

At an event held in Victoria last night, the Prime Minister announced some exciting news: that Microsoft has named MailGuard as a “critical” global Microsoft partner. We’re working closely with Microsoft to improve security for their Office 365 customers around the world. Whether or not you are an Office 365 customer, being a MailGuard customer ensures that you benefit from our world-class technology.
