Resilience for realists:
How careful outsourcing and proportionate in-house resourcing can deliver better cybersecurity
Like other industries, the legal sector is finding out that digital disruption cuts many ways.
Technology is being used both to deliver efficiencies in the current business model, and to begin the journey towards a new one. As a result, cybersecurity itself is a critical component of those new business initiatives: digitalisation means exposure and vulnerability.
Because many firms are building security capabilities almost from scratch, they have a one-off opportunity to choose the structure of their cybersecurity effort, and in particular to look at the role of outsourcing.
For many firms, a judicious mix of off-premises technologies with a reduced in-house function makes far more sense than trying to resource a fully-featured cybersecurity department.
In this model, everything is up for re-evaluation.
What is the role of the CISO? How many people are needed in the security team and what are their functions? A MSSP is probably needed, so who evaluates solution providers and what should they be looking for?
Do they need SOC-as-a-service? What about managed SIEM-as-a-service?
And, since most digital transformation involves the Cloud, how much in-house Cloud expertise is needed, how do firms maintain Cloud visibility, and how should they evaluate CASBs?
The in-house expertise to build and manage this kind of hybrid cybersecurity apparatus is considerable. So what does it look like, and what is the best way forward?
Securing The Law Firm will cover these and other key subjects for its audience of professionals tasked with safeguarding digital assets and sensitive data. There will be real-life case studies, strategic talks and technical break-out sessions from security teams behind some of the world's most admired brands, who know, just like you, that security is now more important to business than ever.
