Lawyers have an ethical duty to be competent and to keep their client data confidential. Clients too want to keep their confidential data protected. All too often, information security is not prioritized by law firms. It costs money to protect data and businesses frequently 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:
  • Cybersecurity standards for small businesses
  • How to prevent data breaches using a combination of technology, policies and training
  • Secure computing when you’re on the road
  • Two factor authentication
  • 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
