Cyber Security Challenges for Today’s Small Law Firms

Event Description

Deadline to Register: October 17, 2017 

Confidentiality is at the heart of every attorney / client relationship. It’s something no lawyer can take for granted. And that’s why protection of client information, whether it’s kept locally or on a Cloud system, is something every lawyer needs to address -- and reasses -- on an ongoing basis as technology evolves.

There are things you can do -- steps you need to take -- but first it’s important to understand the true scope of what effective cyber security looks like. Achieving solid data security involves much more than just keeping your antivirus program up-to-date. It involves using best practices and deploying modern methods like encryption, validated backups, two-factor authentication, guarded client communication portals, and more. Vulnerabilities exist in places most of us are not even aware of -- such as within popular email providers -- and you need to know where the "holes" are before you can plug them.

This presentation will show you various methods small law firms can and should use right now to greatly improve security across the entire practice. Join us for what promises to be a lively, interactive, and valuable session on ‘Cyber Security Challenges for Today’s Small Law Firms’.
