Trading on trust: How Harneys are using email security to protect client data and revenue generation


Mike Duff, CSO, Harneys & Mark Lendon, Senior Vice President, Egress

Email is the pillar the ‘always-on’ legal industry has built client communication on while entire firms continue to work remotely. 91% of legal professionals say the pandemic has increased their reliance on email – and not just during the working day. 93% say they use a mobile device to email out of hours, with 69% acknowledging they feel pressured to reply to emails as quickly as possible.

In direct correlation, 90% of law firms report they’ve experienced an email data breach in the last 12 months, leading to increased pressure for 62% firms to provide assurance to their clients that confidentiality can be protected on email.

Join this webinar to hear Mike Duff, CSO at Harneys, discuss the pivotal role of email for law firms during the pandemic and the security risks this has created. In conversation with Mark Lendon, Senior VP of Sales at Egress, Mike will also examine how law firms can use intelligent technology to take their email security strategy from reactive to proactive and provide a differentiating service to clients that protects revenue streams.

  • The role of email for modern law firms
  • The COVID-19 catalyst for remote working in legal
