Testimonials

Very useful day - great to see real life examples of what firms are doing to mitigate risk, what we can do to protect ourselves, and what's out there to keep us awake at night. Well worth the time out the office.

Director of IT, NABARRO LLP

This was a very well attended event in a good quality venue, with a very full program and excellent networking opportunities. I was delighted to join an impressive list of speakers, with a depth of highly relevant experience, gained from an industry background.

Solicitor CIPP/US, PricewaterhouseCoopers Legal LLP

I thought the conference was very informative, particularly the panel session from the clients at the end of the day. This really echoed the concerns and issues raised at the earlier presentations during the day, and showed us that the legal profession are rightly concerned to take information security seriously. The mix of presentations including clients, legal businesses and vendors brought depth to proceedings, it was a great opportunity to network with peers, and I had the opportunity to put faces to names of people I had only previously met via email or on the phone.

Information Security Manager, Bird & Bird LLP

Like every AKJ event I have ever attended, Securing the Law Firm was absolutely first class in its venue, its programme and in the delegates it attracted; as good as it gets.

Senior Manager, Burrill Green

Great content, great location. Good balance of products being demonstrated in an environment that was conducive to discussion. Should be a feature on all Legal IT Directors’ and Senior Managers’ diaries.

IT Director, Stephenson Harwood

I was impressed with the overall organisation of the event. I certainly learnt a lot from the speakers. The content of the presentations was thought provoking and well delivered.  I have taken away some valuable points which I will raise for follow up. I also took the opportunity to meet a few vendors and talk to delegates from other law firms about what they were doing in the Information Security space. The day was extremely valuable in terms of looking at industry approach and giving consideration to how the offerings could factor in strategy to deal with the evolving threat landscape.

Information Security Officer, Ashurst LLP

Thanks for another excellent StLF session; I am glad it was able to go ahead online.

Cyber Security Specialist, Addleshaw Goddard LLP

The conference provided an opportunity to explore cyber and information security concerns with peers, sharing our own perspectives and context to learn from each other. The presentations were of good quality and struck a good balance between technology providers and information security professionals working within the legal sector. I came away with loads of questions and more importantly, contacts who might help me find the answers!

Info Security & Data Governance Manager, Mills & Reeve LLP

I thought the event itself was absolutely excellent. I think the mix of speakers and content made the whole day a must attend event for firms. 

Chief Information Security & Technology Officer, Howard Kennedy LLP

This was my first event and I really enjoyed the presentations and understand some of the current risk mitigation options. The opportunity to network was especially useful for myself as this is the first time I’ve operated in the Legal sector so it was good to discuss individual war stories and understand some of the cultural nuances of the Partnership model.

Information Security Manager, Ward Hadaway

It was a pleasure to participate in such a well organised event and at such a good venue

Sector Consultancy Manager, IT Governance Ltd

The event was very informative and educational, I try to attend this type of event regularly to ensure that I kept up to date with the latest threats to my organisation, the best industry practice in defending ourselves and the market leading products which can be used. A side bonus is the great networking and the wonderful staff from AKJ who make these events the success which they have proven to be.

Information Security and Compliance Officer, Field Fisher Waterhouse LLP

I found the seminar to provide the right amount of infosec industry information directed at the right level, delivered in a professional and enjoyable environment.

Information Security & Business Continuity Manager, Weightmans LLP

The presentations were very relevant to the job I do and to the challenge which I suspect many law firms are facing today. I'd recommend it to anyone who has ever responded to a client security questionnaire or is on any part of the path towards ISO accreditation.

Head of IT Operations, Osborne Clarke

A fascinating conference giving useful insights and practical tips on security. Law firms must step up to the challenge and this course was a great starting point for that.

Director. IP, Innovation, Technology, Jeffrey Green Russell Limited

I found the conference highly valuable. It was useful to network with fellow legal IT professionals and discuss some of the challenges we’re all facing, I found the supplier stands useful in getting an update on what the market has to offer and I thought the presentations were right on target in terms of content and delivery. I look forward to the next one!

IT Manager, Kennedys

The event was extremely useful in being able to network with peers across the sector as well as discuss legal specific issues/concerns with industry leading vendors. The speakers were able to provide real world experience to their presentations with in depth knowledge and expertise during the Q&A and panel discussions.

Head of IT Security & Operations, Irwin Mitchell LLP

Well organised conference with key IT security decision makers from law firms. Agenda was suitably diverse covering policy, technical and practical presentations. Well worth attending to keep abreast of the latest trends and thinking.

Marketing Manager, Stroz Friedberg

Many thanks for a great event yesterday. Being new to the legal sector after 16 years in the banking/financial sector, it was good to get real world experience/examples from the speakers as well as being able to network with information security professionals at other law firms. The event was well organised and flowed well.

Information Security Manager, Brown Jacobson LLP

This was my first time attending and presenting at the Securing The Law Firm series. I am not only grateful to AKJ Associates for inviting me to contribute, but also for giving me the opportunity to access new content and knowledge, as well as extending my network to a sector that will hopefully become increasingly more aware of the threats associated with cybercrime. I would recommend this event to any law firm serious about maintaining their privileged client relationships in the 21st Century.

FBCS, Chairman, Global Advisory Board, CSCSS & Chairman, Advisory Board, Ensygnia

Having wondered whether in a busy schedule I could afford the time to attend the event, I found it stimulating, interesting and somewhat scary. It was certainly worth the investment in time. Without exception, all the presenters had something to say that was relevant to my firm, and I took away a number of real nuggets which I am sure I will use. The breakout seminars were also extremely useful, as was the opportunity to network with colleagues from other firms. All in all, a great day.

Head of Information Systems, Mills & Reeve LLP

Focussed and thought provoking – if you want to know what is happening in the world of information security – this is a great source of information.
