Description

With professional hackers and cybersecurity criminals posing a constant threat to law firms big and small, the reality is that your firm’s sensitive data will always be a target. But with everything else on your plate, how can your firm afford, let alone find time, to safeguard against these ever-present and constantly evolving risks? In this 1-hour CLE, Sherri will walk through real examples of the types of cyberattacks and strategies leveled against law firms and demonstrate low-cost, effective ways to bolster your firm’s defenses. Learn how to cheaply and effectively reduce the likelihood of a cyberattack.

Under various states’ rules of professional conduct, lawyers have an ethical obligation to protect their clients’ information and files. Attention should be paid to the benefits and risks associated with relevant technology. The greatest risk lawyers face today with the use of technology is the possibility of their systems being hacked by cybercriminals (by ransomware or other means) to gain access to sensitive data to hold for ransom payments.

Confidentiality rules state that a lawyer shall make reasonable efforts to prevent the inadvertent or unauthorized disclosure of, or unauthorized access to, client information. The good news is this risk can be averted by a few simple and cost-effective security strategies which you’ll learn in this cybersecurity course.
