On Information Security -- Law Firms - the "Soft Underbelly of Corporate America"?

The folks at ILTA have graciously posted the recordings of several sessions at their recent Law Firm Information Security Symposium (LegalSEC). We’ll be highlighting several worth reviewing in the posts to come. Here's a recording from their keynote presentation: "The Soft Underbelly of Corporate America? Law Firms and the Cybersecurity Threat Matrix"--

  • Each day we hear about another data breach in the news. More personally identifiable information (PII) and account information is being siphoned out of respected companies. What about our intellectual property, our trade secrets and other business capital?
  • Oftentimes, the easiest place to attack is when the data is outside the walls of the owner — in many cases at their law firm.
  • During our keynote, we will walk through the cybersecurity threat matrix and its evolution, discuss how various state and federal laws drive forward controls that may or may not help protect our data, and the role of active defense and intelligence.
  • Attendees will learn what programs and controls will position their firms for success in assurance reviews, certifications and competing for business.
  • Together we will explore this topic — as you hear from someone who has worn the hats of law firm counsel, chief privacy officer, chief security officer and chief compliance officer — so we can operationalize against this threat.
