What happens during a data breach? How do you determine if you have experienced a data breach? What are the first steps you should take during / after a cyberattack? Are you willing to pay to have your critical files unlocked due to a ransomware intrusion to your computer systems?

Be prepared. Get your law firm prepared.

This seminar will provide you with proven strategies to harden your computer systems and to minimize the risks to your firm and to your client’s information. We will also discuss what steps to take should you fall victim to a cyberattack.

Good Cybersecurity consists of a multilayer, integrated, systems approach to protect your client’s and your firm’s data. This means constant vigilance, good office email policies, and staff training.

Good Cybersecurity means active awareness and keeping computer systems up-to-date. The security of your client’s information and your very livelihood depends on you taking the appropriate steps to protect and secure your firm data.
