Security means survival: Fighting fires, hackers and red tape – The Law Society

Protect your valuable electronic assets. Law firms and the wider legal services industry have a growing reliance on vulnerable electronic networks to co-ordinate their back office operations, deliver legal services, and process sensitive client data. Hacktivists, cyber-criminals and foreign governments are actively targeting these operations by crashing and spoofing websites and stealing data.

The consequences of inadequate protection are serious, ranging from direct financial loss to reputational damage and loss of trust. In addition, victims of such attacks are increasingly being held accountable for poor security by regulators.

Learn about the threats, how to combat them, and how to meet your regulatory obligations before it’s too late. Come to Security means survival.

This seminar will be of interest to anyone concerned with protecting the key information assets of their firm to ensure their firm’s sustainability and competitiveness.
