Short Description:
Few law firms seem to fully appreciate the level of risk attorneys and staff truly represent. As a user of firm technology, any individual’s actions can unintentionally circumvent the security tools IT support has deployed. This program will try to address this problem by focusing on how to secure the users of technology by creating awareness of how social engineering attacks occur and coupling that with passing along knowledge of how the attacks themselves can be circumvented.

Law firms of all shapes and sizes, including solo and small law firms, have been held hostage by ransomware, the malicious software that encrypts your data until you pay a hefty fee. Worse yet, today's criminals also steal and threaten to publish or sell your information if you don't meet their demands.

It seems there is a disconnect between the number of women in law schools and the number of women who enter (or remain) in the legal profession. That’s bad news for business and not a good indicator for the current culture of law practice.
