October is cybersecurity month and as attorneys, we have an obligation to ensure our firms are safeguarded, both for our sake and our clients'. This session will encourage cybersecurity best practices for law firms by breaking down complex security issues in a format designed for the non-technical lawyer. We will discuss topics from privacy statutes, the types of losses and breaches and how they occur, and why law offices are considered gateways for hackers. We’ll also cover:

  • Internal threats to your firm’s security and password management

  • How to manage your office’s inventory and secure office assets
