BOSTON -- April 9, 2014

Iron Mountain Incorporated (NYSE: IRM), the storage and information management
company, is hosting its third annual Law Firm Information Governance Symposium
from April 9-11 in Washington, D.C., bringing together some of the legal
industry’s leading information governance thought leaders to discuss ideas for
improving how law firms protect and manage information. This year, for the
first time, symposium participants will drive the agenda and discussion,
helping to advance the standard for information governance within law firms.

“It’s been a privilege to see how the symposium has grown and evolved over
these last three years, mirroring the growth and evolution of information
governance itself,” said Rudy Moliere, director of records and information,
Morgan Lewis & Bockius LLP and a member of the symposium’s steering committee.
“When we first started, information governance was an emerging practice. But
as the stakes for managing information have grown, information governance has
increasingly become a key part of law firm information managers’ daily lives.
As a steering committee member, it’s been a thrill to see symposium
participants take on the responsibility of continuing the information
governance conversation in the weeks and months following the 2013 meeting,
and I’m excited to see the results of all that hard work.”

Following a request from symposium participants, the steering committee
commissioned four task forces to analyze and report on protocols and best
practices for the most pressing governance issues of the day. The task forces
will present initial findings and recommendations at this year’s symposium, in
a peer review format with 30 law firm and industry leaders. Iron Mountain will
publish the final task force reports this summer focused on:

  *IG & the New HIPAA Omnibus Rules. Led by Brian McCauley, director of
    Information Governance at McDermott Will & Emery LLP, this team focused on
    what law firms need to do to comply with the 2013 Health Information
    Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Omnibus Rule, which expands the
    security and protection requirements for organizations that store or
    access private patient information.
  *IG & Lawyer/Matter Mobility. Led by Terrence Coan, senior director for HBR
    Consulting, this team explored the information governance ramifications of
    lawyers, clients and information moving from firm to firm, or matter
    mobility.
  *IG & eDiscovery. Led by Brian Donato, chief information officer at Vorys,
    Sater, Seymour and Pease, LLP, this team looked at how information
    governance can help properly manage and protect the large volumes of
    emails and other electronic records generated by electronic discovery
    requests from existing and prior cases.
  *Emerging IG Trends. Led by Samantha Lofton, director of records
    information, risk management & practice support at Ice Miller LLP, this
    team explored two key areas: The skill set requirements for emerging law
    firm information governance professionals, and how increasing client
    demands in outside counsel guidelines impacts law firms’ abilities to win
    business.

“We’re excited that the symposium continues to grow and gain momentum,
including new topics and, for the first time, a new participant-driven
format,” said Carolyn Casey, Esq., senior manager, legal vertical for Iron
Mountain. “Clients are now asking law firms if they have the appropriate
measures in place to protect their information. In response, our task forces
explored the intersection of information governance with privacy, security and
compliance topics to help law firms create the right mechanisms and ensure
they can address client demands. We are honored that the industry has embraced
the symposium as a platform for creative dialogue and problem solving on these
and other important governance topics.”
