Live Webinar - Ethical and Budget-Friendly Cybersecurity for Solo Lawyers

March 8, 2022

1-2 p.m.

Solo lawyers are anxious to keep their data confidential – and compelled to by ethical requirements. All too often, solo law firms have difficulty maintaining an appropriate level of cybersecurity. It costs money to protect data: Frequently solo lawyers resist budgeting for security, even though an ounce of prevention is far less expensive than a pound of cure. Investigating and remediating data breaches is hideously expensive, not to mention the necessity of complying with state data breach notification laws. But there are a host of free and budget- friendly tips. Our presenters will cover:

•    The ethics of cybersecurity for law firms
•    Current cybersecurity standards for law firms
•    How to prevent data breaches using a combination of technology, policies and training
•    Secure computing when you’re working from home   
•    Multi-factor authentication
•    Endpoint protection
•    Intrusion detection systems
•    Encryption
•    The new rules for strong passwords and password management
•    What you must do after a data breach and the components of an Incident Response Plan
•    Defending against – and recovering from – ransomware
