While lawyers and their aversion to technology may have been the punchline of a joke some time ago, today, the industry handles an increasing amount of sensitive and confidential information stored digitally. As a result, law firms and legal services have become attractive targets to cybercriminals, looking to exploit limited security practices and plentiful data. Now as lawfirms look to reduce their technical and regulatory cybersecurity risks, cyber risk assessments and tabletops are essential tools for identifying vulnerabilities, mitigating risk, and educating attorneys and staff. Single practitioners to Big Law attorneys should consider cyber risk assessments and tabletops for the risk management of their practice as well as a key solution to advise clients on.
In this seminar, our expert panelists begin by giving an overview of cybersecurity, the current cyber threats that law firms face, and what information is being targeted. Next, our speakers discuss some of the relevant guidance and regulations on cybersecurity. Our panelists then discuss recent data breaches that have affected law firms, how they happened, and what we can learn from them. Following this discussion of the risks, our speakers introduce cyber risk assessments and tabletops, highlighting how they work and their key features. Our speakers conclude by discussing additional strategies of cyber risk mitigation for attorneys to consider in protecting their practice.
