Cybersecurity can be overwhelming for lawyers. Get essential tips from legal IT experts Sharon D. Nelson, Esq. and John W. Simek with this 28-minute installment of Webinars for Busy Lawyers.
Law firms are anxious to keep their data confidential – and compelled to do so by ethical requirements. All too often, information security is not prioritized by law firms. It costs money to protect data: Frequently 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 experts will offer you a wide array of cybersecurity tips!
Over 30 minutes of Q&A following the program is included in the recording.
