When news of the Panama Papers
broke world-wide, the poorly kept secret that hackers routinely target
law firms was out in the open. The ever-growing threats to confidential
data held and used by legal professionals and law firms include
sophisticated electronic attacks, lost and stolen devices, a variety of
tricks and scams, and even simple lawyer, paralegal and employee errors.
Each of these can result in serious consequences for legal
professionals and firms alike.
This webinar will canvas a
number of different aspects of computer use in a legal firm that are
targeted by those who have dishonest purposes in mind. You will learn
- Your ethical obligations related to technology and data confidentiality
- Comprehend a wide array of electronic threats facing legal practitioners
- Understand the essential steps you need to take to safeguard your computer network, computers and mobile devices
- The methods hackers use to trick people and how to avoid being a victim
- What basic steps you need to prepare for and respond to a security incident.
Even if you aren’t ‘computer literate’ you need to know the questions to pose to your IT person.
Your presenter, Marcel Mongeon, LLB, LLM, has 35 years experience working with computer networks
