Course Description

For lawyers, securing client information is of paramount importance and there can be severe risks that come from not doing so. However, most law firms are not adequately prepared in terms of cybersecurity because they do not invest in the tools necessary to prevent the inadvertent disclosure of, or unauthorized access to, client data. Failure to do so can be devastating for any law firm and the shift to working remotely due to COVID-19 has exacerbated the probability of these problems occurring. This program aims to elucidate the importance of cybersecurity for attorneys who are providing legal services from home and how to protect that legal data from potential cyberattacks.
