Data privacy and security is a critical concern not just for businesses, but also for law firms and attorneys as individuals. Firms of all sizes face threats from cyber actors who seek to compromise their networks and access their confidential client data, often to exploit it for financial gain. Lawyers must be familiar with the threats that they face and the patchwork of regulations that may apply if they do suffer a data security incident.
Join our expert panel and moderator Andrew Levchuk, who was Lead Counsel for the U.S. Justice Department for 24 years, and served as Senior Counsel for the Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section before entering private practice.
The panel will address issues of vital importance to almost all practicing attorneys, including:
• The threat actors targeting Massachusetts businesses
• Types of attacks of particular concern to lawyers and law firms
• Massachusetts laws and regulations related to data security
• The federal and state legal landscape beyond Massachusetts (including HIPAA, the California laws, and the GDPR)
• Criteria for assessing information security at a law firm
• Practical steps you can take now to enhance your readiness for a cyber incident
