No cybersecurity, no clients

Securing The Law Firm: Special Session
London, 25th January 2018

 

As recent breaches have shown, even the largest professional services firms, with big budgets and cybersecurity expertise, can be caught out. Most law firms are, understandably, further behind the curve. They need rapid, direct access to advice from those who have solved the key problems already. 


Securing the Law Firm: Special Session will bring in leaders from outside the legal industry to explain how they have built the teams, processes and technology stacks necessary to provide the critical foundations of cybersecurity. 

 

It is clear that recent high-profile hacks in the legal sector, in consultancy and in credit scoring are game-changers for professional firms. Senior management and partners have realised that digital infrastructure and cybersecurity area bedrock of their business. Suddenly:
 

  • Legal CISOs who have struggled or budget for years saying that suddenly they have budget
  • Legal data security professionals say for the first time they are being asked to go on client meetings to re-assure clients about cybersecurity
  • Senior partners (budget-holders) admit publicly now that they are part of the problem
  • Barristers' chambers realise they too have a problem 
  • Senior financial institution clients now publicly give law firms the message: ”You are critical third-parties and you will not get our business unless you can provide us with guarantees of security.”

 

As the business leaders at law firms realise the urgency of the problem, senior management are allocating significant budget now and demanding that the problem be solved. 

 

In addition, the structure of law firms will make selling easier in this window: senior partners are reacting to a sudden, perceived critical business threat and they are responding with budget and by delthe power to purchase is suddenly delegated to the few people that they have on board who have had any connection with cybersecurity. 

 

People who were previously junior or had to go through endless meetings to get anything done, become key budget holders and decision makers with real money to spend now.

 

Securing the Law Firm: Special Session is our response to this sudden change in perception. We have gathered a range of speakers from outside the legal industry, chosen for their expertise in the key building blocks of cybersecurity. This event is a unique opportunity for legal practices of all sizes to keep up to date with the best in international cybersecurity processes and technologies.

Law firms are, for the most part, starting from a low base. But partner and client expectations are now high. With budget comes responsibility and scrutiny. Information security professionals will be under pressure to perform, and to perform quickly. 
Securing the Law Firm: Special Session is a must-attend collection of presentations that CISOs can use today to start the process. Join us.
