Why You Should Attend

Legal Services providers are under increasing pressure from government regulators and clients to insure that sensitive client data stored in law firm servers is secure. The Securities and Exchange Commission, for example, is taking a closer look at cybersecurity breaches in public companies – viewing them as fiduciary lapses. Legal services providers, like most vendors, are required to adhere to the same security standards as their clients. Recently, several large law firms formed a coalition for sharing best practices. Modeled on the FS-ISAC (Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center), the coalition is called the Legal Services Information Sharing and Analysis Organization (LS-ISAO) , and is operated under the umbrella of the FS-ISAC. Join PLI’s expert faculty to learn more about the technical, ethical, and security challenges legal services face in guarding against cyberattacks.
