Research has now shown conclusively that cutting corners on cybersecurity can and will cost you clients.

Audits and questionnaires remain key to winning and keeping business, especially from financial organisations. But those questionnaires are long, complex, and vary from company to company.

IT and information security teams faced with a high volume of these will be overwhelmed - ironically keeping them from actually safeguarding the company's assets.

What's more, they're not just checklists of the basics. When the questionnaires contain everything but the kitchen sink, which requirements are nice-to-have, which will give you a competitive edge, and which will lose you the client?

Clients are demanding higher and higher levels of cybersecurity from their critical third parties. At the same time, cybersecurity is going mandatory - voluntary commercial codes are no longer enough. Security professionals inside legal firms must overcome structural challenges to demonstrate true cybersecurity as well as basic compliance.

Law firms need cybersecurity advice and solutions tailored to their industry's specific requirements. But this advice must also reflect the concrete demands their clients are making today.

This edition of Securing the Law Firm: Special Session will focus not just on securing the law firm for its own sake, but also on giving clear, practical guidance on what clients expect from their legal third-parties.

There will be real-life case studies, strategic talks and technical break-out sessions from experts within and outside of the legal sector, aimed directly at helping information security professionals meet - and exceed - the criteria clients care about.
