Securing the digital client journey

SECURING THE LAW FIRM

26th January 2023 • Park Plaza Victoria, London, UK

The growth of emerging legal technology and increased outsourcing mean additional challenges for CISOs

 

Costs versus risks – a difficult conversation?

One recent Gartner survey predicts that legal departments will increase their spending on technology threefold by 2025. This spend will buy workflow and automation tools, contract lifecycle management systems, legal applications on top of business application platforms like Microsoft, SAP, Salesforce and ServiceNow, and the adoption of non-legal-specialist technology applied to legal challenges using artificial intelligence (AI), ML, advanced analytics, process automation and other emerging technologies.


Law firms are also increasing their use of Alternative Legal Service Providers (ALSPs) to effectively outsource routine services such as  document review, contract management, litigation support, discovery and electronic discovery, investigation support and legal research, IP management and even analyzing financial transactions as a component of corporate merger due diligence operations.


And of course, both the new technologies law firms are buying and the outsourcing partners they are using rely upon huge volumes of data exchange and, usually, the Cloud. ALSPs also tend to use off-shore outsourcing and web-based services.

 

The growth of emerging legal technology, the use of ALSPs and reliance on Cloud all have security implications. At the same time, the current economic and geopolitical turbulence is making law firms an even more attractive target to traditional and nation-state attackers. So:


• How are legal cybersecurity professionals coping with the expansion of the attack surface via new tech and outsourcing?


• How are they ensuring third-party security with regard to ALSPs?


• How are they building in resilience against Cloud outtages that can affect all elements of their business processes and even their SaaS cybersecurity vendors?


• And how are they progressing with the core cyber hygiene we all struggle with around hybrid working, email security, ransomware, patching and IDAM?

 

Securing the Law Firm will look at the latest thinking around legal cybersecurity. As well as presentations from some of the world’s largest firms we will also be asking how small and medium-sized organisations can keep up with cybersecurity best practice in the sector.

  • Mapping resources and controls to material business risks

    • How can CISOs understand which threats represent real business risks?
    • It’s easy to say ‘talk to the business’ – but how does that conversation work?
    • If it does then CISOs can create a framework for prioritizing security, resilience, incident response and BCP spend. 
    • So, what does this look like in practice?
  • Why maturity matters

    • The range and variety of security technology available continues to grow in volume and complexity.
    • One way to determine which solutions work best for which firms is to understand what those solutions require in terms of ongoing costs and management.
    • How mature do firms have to be to use which kinds of security software?
  • Cloud incident response

    • Recent Cloud outtages have not simply disrupted low-level infrastructure, they have disabled cybersecurity solutions and sometimes shut down corporate access to critical network assets.
    • As well as managing Cloud security, CISOs need good Cloud incident response. How are they going about it?
  • Some third parties are more important than others

    • As law firms outsource key processes to non-legal service providers, a clear set of material third-party risks is created.
    • How are firms assuring their clients (like the banks) that this outsourcing is secure?
    • And do those measures create a path to broader third-party security?
  • How secure is new legal technology?

    • The drive for process efficiency is putting ever more sensitive data into on prem and Cloud applications and giving access to that data to more people in more places.
    • The use of web browser interfaces is common. This creates both security and resilience risks.
    • How can CISOs prove that they on top of those risks?
  • Managing insider threats at a time of crisis

    • When economies are under stress, employees too can find themselves in financial difficulty. When geopolitical tensions rise, people can take sides.
    • Insider threats of various kinds become far more prevalent and dangerous at times like these.
    • How have security and other MIS tools matured to make detecting malicious insiders easier and more accurate?
