Pension Trustees need to affirm Pension Administrators are in compliance with EBSA Cybersecurity guidelines.

The Department of Labor Department of Labor set new standards for Cybersecurity Compliance. In April 2021, the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA) issued cybersecurity guidance for employee retirement plans. Shortly thereafter, the DOL updated its audit inquiries to include probing questions for plan fiduciaries about their compliance with these new agency guidelines. Subsequently, pension trustees have a responsibility to affirm pension administrators are abiding by Internet Security best-practices as outlined by the Department of Labor.

Legal Computer Consultants (LCC) assists pension trustees, working with pension administrator’s Chief Information Officers (CIOs), to affirm they are following cybersecurity best practices.

Working with the CIO of each pension trust, LCC conducts an in-depth inventory and questionnaire, collates results, and in some cases, requests validation. The evaluation assesses adherence to Department of Labor guidelines as articulated in the following guidelines outlined by the DOL:

Federal Courts may require your firm to submit PDF files in a PDF/A compliant format.  PDF/A is type of PDF file that contains all the elements of the document ‘embedded’ in the document versus having links to content in the document.  This is important for long term archiving and subsequently preferred by the courts.

Here are two ways to convert PDF files to PDF/A compliant:
1.  Print PDFs to the PDF printer driver;  Choose, [File][Print] in the PDF and choose the PDF printer driver as the printer to create the output.  This is fast and simple, but the markups and other features like digital signatures, embedded content and encryption will be removed from the file.  This is usually OK for legal professionals submitting files to the courts.
2.  Using Adobe Professional, creating PDF/A files requires a few extra steps, but this method preserves the markups and other features.  Choose PDF/A-1b for Federal Court Filings:
