Tips on how to secure client data in the age of cybercrime
About the Webinar
If you’re practicing law in 2016, you’re squarely in the crosshairs of one of the biggest threats the profession has ever faced: cybercrime.
Law firms, by the nature of their business, are possessors of their clients’ most sensitive trade secrets, IP and electronic records. And hackers know it.
Earlier this year, this threat came home to roost in a big way: The Panama-based law firm Mossack Fonseca fell prey to what Edward Snowden described as the “biggest leak in the history of data journalism” — where hackers accessed the firms IT framework and leaked more than 11.5 million documents across the web.
Since then, several other high-profile law firms have admitted to data breaches and reports of state-sponsored hacking of law firms have surfaced. What steps can your firm take, and what tools can it deploy, to protect sensitive client data in unprecedented times?
Four key learning points:
- Legal, ethical and professional ramifications of breach
- Areas of weakness where law firms are vulnerable to breach
- Steps your firm can take to reduce the risk of intrusion
- Affordable tools you can use to secure client data
