Cybersecurity Best Practices for Lawyers 2021
Practising Law Institute (PLI)
Data Privacy Partners Mark Melodia and Mark Francis will join a PLI webinar titled "Cybersecurity Best Practices for Lawyers 2021." Cybersecurity attacks and data breaches at law firms are a growing problem. Many professionals agree it’s not a question of “if” a cyber-attack will occur, but “when.” Attorneys are under increasing pressure from government regulators and clients to ensure that sensitive client data stored in law firm servers is secure. During this session, the panelists will explore the legal, technological and ethics issues lawyers should know about. They will also discuss best practices for guarding against cybersecurity attacks and handling the aftermath when a cyber breach occurs.
Attendees will learn:
- Why lawyers and law firms are particularly attractive targets for cyber-attacks
- Best cybersecurity practices for attorneys, law firms and law departments
- Special cybersecurity risks and requirements for law firms with banking/financial services clients
- A look at the SEC’s cybersecurity guidance and what it means for law firms that represent public companies
