London 23 February: Cybersecurity & Law Firms Seminar
Ascertus Limited is bringing together security experts and three prominent legal software suppliers, including Mimecast, iManage and DocuSign, to discuss one of the most burning issues for the legal industry in 2017 – cyber security. This free to attend seminar is scheduled for 8:30 – 13:00 on 23 February 2017 at the new Central London offices of Bird & Bird.
The keynote address will be delivered by Rob Dartnall, Cyber Intelligence Director, Security Alliance, an intelligence-driven cyber security consultancy with global reach. Rob has recently authored a white paper entitled, ‘The Cyber Threat Landscape for Law Firms’, a copy of which will be provided to all attendees. His address will be followed by insightful presentations from Mimecast, iManage Inc., DocuSign and others.
The special guest presenter is Jenny Radcliffe aka ‘The People Hacker’ who will talk about her own experiences as an ethical Social Engineer; discussing the tricks, tactics and methods she uses to illustrate how ‘people’ are the weak link in organisations. In her highly entertaining presentation, Jenny will also provide some tips and guidance on how to ‘wake up the workforce’ to this danger.

“With the pace at which technology is advancing alongside the skill set and dogged resolve of cyber criminals, it isn’t far-fetched to believe that a security breach is almost a certainty for most organisations,” said Roy Russell, CEO of Ascertus Limited. “Law firms are especially vulnerable due to the nature of their business. Rather than only focus on breach prevention, loss mitigation is potentially a sounder business approach. It requires all facets of security to come together – i.e. technology, people and processes. At this seminar, attendees will hear from experts and leave with actionable understanding of how they can manage the cyber security challenges faced by their organisations.”
The seminar is aimed at individuals responsible for IT, security, data privacy, operations and strategy in law firms and corporate legal departments.
