Data privacy and security is one of the leading challenges facing law firms and the judiciary today. The statistics are sobering. Every 39 seconds there is a hacker attack. The average cost of a data breach in 2020 will exceed $150 million. Between 2013 and 2018 there were nearly four million records stolen from breaches every day. Approximately $6 trillion is expected to be spent globally on cybersecurity by 2021. This is not a program you can afford to miss.
Security issues aren’t going away. If anything, they will continue to get more complex as cybercriminals increase in sophistication and continue to target the legal industry. Law firms of all sizes and the judiciary must make privacy and security a priority. This 1.5 credit CLE will address what law firms need to know about privacy and security including:
- Ethics obligations of securing employee, client and litigant data
- Common threats including phishing, ransomware, and password management
- Security management of internal systems, business and personal electronic devices
