You have probably heard of the Panama and Paradise Papers, millions of sensitive documents that were leaked to the public in 2015. It’s just one example of many high-profile leaks of sensitive data in recent years. Cybersecurity is not a new issue, but the damage caused by such attacks is rising exponentially each year.  Some predict that cybercrime damages will reach $6 trillion by 2021.

Of the organizations targeted, law firms are seeing a rise in attacks due to the nature of the data they hold. In this presentation, a panel of legal and technology experts will discuss the current trends in cyber attacks, why attackers are focusing on law firms and the techniques they implement, and the legal and ethical obligations a lawyer for protecting his or her clients’ confidential data.
