Cyber Security attacks are at an all-time high. Now more than ever, law firm management needs to take appropriate measures to both protect the firm and uphold the firm's ethical obligation to preserve client data. This webinar will offer practical guidance and strategies to help minimize the risks of a cyber security breach, which can lead to devastating financial losses, exposure of confidential client information and damage to a firm's reputation — its most important asset.

Our distinguished panel of experts will cover the following:
• Best-practices, legal and regulatory compliance, and procedures to defend against attacks;
• Technology resources and solutions to help protect your firm; and
• Insurance coverage options to transfer some of the financial risks.
