“Absolutely. My law firm is supremely qualified to address your global cybersecurity legal risks.”
Can you say that with confidence?
Your clients — and your prospective clients — are facing significant data security risks. Many may have been hacked and don’t even know it. Most are not versed in critical emerging issues, like GDPR, or what to do in the event of a breach. Attorneys must be able to advise clients on cybersecurity risk. Are you prepared to advise them? Are you able to assure potential clients of your expertise?
Join our panelists during one of the RSA Law Firm Cybersecurity Practice events being held around the country and work on that confidence. The first will take place Dec. 5, 2017, in Washington, DC, followed by an event the following day, on Dec. 6, 2017, in New York.

Privacy & Security
How are industry and business trends changing the way we look at risk, privacy and security? How is the vendor industry responding? What are the evolving variables that drive the evolving threat landscape?
Hear a lawyer from a legal practice that provides legal services, an IR service provider and technologist speak of their experience in delivering breach solutions to end-clients of legal firms. What other law firms are providing to their clients and how that is evolving? What are the market opportunities?
Hear the team of industry experts chime in on the top trends and which ones will have the biggest impacts in the future. Trends in privacy, government, and industry are trying to offset increased threats … but all of these are combining to create the perfect storm of work efforts for organizations.

Ethical Considerations in the Context of Law Firm Data Security
Starting with amendments to the ABA’s Model Rules of Professional Conduct in 2012, the legal profession has responded by enacting new ethics rules, creating new obligations for attorneys to take proactive measure to protect client confidential information. So far, 30 states have adopted the ABA’s new Model Rules. What you will learn: 1. How ethics rules regarding accidental disclosure of confidential information have changed in the last two decades in response to the rising use of the Internet, electronic storage systems, and email; 2. Attorney obligations under the new rules; 3. How these recently amended ABA Model Rules, especially 1.6(c) and 4.4(b), have been adopted or modified by various states; 4. The implications of these new rules for legal malpractice claims, in light of Shore v. Johnson & Bell; and, 5. How to implement substantive change programs to ensure individual and firm-wide compliance.
Recommendations for Law Firm Preparedness
In this segment our panel will discuss the trends related to law firms becoming primary attack targets. The common weaknesses, threats, and risks facing law firms are rapidly changing and privacy compliance is seeping into all businesses, including law firms. What are the risk, impacts, and what can be done about them.
