Description

Assessing your cybersecurity is more important in the work-from-home environment where vulnerabilities are far greater and hackers are focused on exploiting them. While the process may seem overwhelming, with a little bit of education, you will learn how you can further strengthen your firm’s security posture. Security Assessments and Pen Testing for Law Firms teaches lawyers the benefits and necessity of having their networks scanned for vulnerabilities and weaknesses — even law firms on a budget. This CLE will cover the basics of each of these services, how to engage a vendor, questions to ask and exactly what each service will entail.

Some of the focused discussion points include:

  • What are the differences between a security assessment and penetration test?
  • How long does each one take to complete?
  • How do I prepare for an assessment or pen test?
  • What are the expected costs?
  • What are the deliverables?
  • How often should I have these services performed?
