Hacking: The Threat from Within

Law firm management and risk managers have been focusing on the threats of outside hackers, malicious source code attacks and the everyday digital threats that could disrupt business. But there is one weak link that the also need to focus on — people.

Whether disgruntled or dishonest, whether destroying records or stealing intellectual property, it is shockingly easy for insiders to wreak havoc on your most valuable digital assets. Unprotected data can leave your office on a thumb drive, a laptop or through a personal email account. Once outside, there are plenty of lively markets for it. From competitors looking for trade secrets, to criminals stealing customer data, to rogue states breaching national security and much more, there is no shortage of buyers for any information that can be monetized. Before you can begin to build your defense, you need to know what you must protect.

• Identify the risks within the law firm environment.
• Discuss practical tips on how to better secure and monitor sensitive data.
• Examine surveys and facts to support the trends.
• Analyze interactive hypotheticals.

Audience: This session assumes that participants have a working knowledge of cyber security and risk management in the legal industry.
