Securing the return from home
The transition back from fully remote working is much more complex than the blanket lockdown. What should CISOs look out for?

In a sense, the sudden lockdowns of March last year made things easy. With no choice except to secure fully remote working, legal CISOs and cybersecurity professionals simply did whatever had to be done to ensure that employees working from home could do their jobs while maintaining the security of critical data and resources. But the return from home is different.

The transition back to some form of ‘normality’ brings with it levels of uncertainty and unpredictability that few firms have experienced before.

Who will be in the office? When? What levels of network access and privileges will they require? What devices will they be using where? Do devices used at home require quarantine in case of malicious infection? Should hybrid workers be re-onboarded every time they come to the office? Do you need new policies for different classes of employees? Will you need to re-think collaboration technologies and their security? The list of questions goes on.

Law firms are already a prime target for hackers. They also do not have the huge cybersecurity teams or budgets of other major targets such as the financial sector. These challenges will stretch teams already battling sophisticated ransomware and other attacks.

At the same time as all this, clients have upped their demands for proof of security. The audits law firms must now routinely complete in order to service their most profitable clients are becoming ever more demanding and expensive. Those clients will doubtless want to know how firms are securing the transition away from blanket remote working.

So how can law firms remain secure affordably? Is Cloud migration a critical component of this and can firms’ security and privacy concerns with Cloud be mitigated? What other solutions and strategies can help – from people to process to technology?

The latest Securing the Law Firm virtual event will look at all these issues and more. Join our real-life case studies and in-depth technical sessions from the security and privacy teams at some of the world’s most admired legal brands.

  • More for less - getting smart with cybersecurity budgets

    • Affordability and value for money are as important in cybersecurity as they are in any other service sector
    • Legal partnerships are particularly keen on understanding ROI
    • So, while new technologies such as XDR and new philosophies such as ZTNA and SASE sound good, can they demonstrate value and practicality?
  • Are criminals winning the ransomware war?

    • Ransomware test every part of your infrastructure, from awareness to endpoint protection to patching to phishing defences
    • Some attacks are sophisticated, but most rely on traditional methods and vectors
    • So why is it so hard to beat them? Is AI or zero trust or something else the answer?
  • Getting Cloud migration right the first time

    • Migrating to the Cloud is a priority
    • But, if not properly managed, cloud migrations result in extra complexity and risk
    • How can firms efficiently assess cloud readiness, plan and execute migrations, and establish comprehensive cloud governance?
  • Cybersecurity priorities for hybrid working

    • We may not be returning to a fully office-based world, but there is little doubt that companies in all sectors want employees to be working more in the office than they are now.
    • Securing that transition, and the fluid and uncertain environment it creates, is the next challenge for CISOs.
    • What do you need to know and how can you prepare?
  • Pass the audit or lose the business?

    • How can law firms prove to their largest and most valuable clients that they are third-parties who can be trusted with sensitive market, deal, IP, contract and other data?
    • What technologies exist that can help automate the process of data aggregation and validation?
    • How can CISOs ensure they have enough time to do their real job, and aren't just turning into box-ticking machines?
  • The need for more proactive security

    • As cyber threats have multiplied, the time CISOs have to choose, buy and implement security has solutions has fallen sharply
    • But it has never been more critical to make the right choice
    • How can cybersecurity professionals change their RFP and POC processes while maintaining quality?
