Year 2000 Risk Management & Legal Issues From CCH Helps Companies With Millennium Bug Plans

(Riverwoods, ILL., October 5, 1998) -- As companies struggle to become "Year 2000 compliant," they should take a moment to ask whether they will be Year 2000 viable, suggests CCH INCORPORATED, a leading provider of business law and information now offering Year 2000 Risk Management & Legal Issues on CD-ROM. The question of how a company’s computers deal with a date of 2000 is not simply a question of its own information technology, CCH says.

When it comes to business risk, companies have never before faced anything quite like the potential Year 2000 crisis. With businesses dependent on computers for their core processes, and also dependent on other businesses that rely on computers, the "Y2K" crisis is above all a risk management issue.

To help companies -- especially their risk managers and their legal advisors -- tackle the Y2K problem and ensure business continuity, CCH, in association with Y2Ki publications, is offering Year 2000 Risk Management & Legal Issues.
