Title: Security Breach: how to avoid a potential disaster for your law firm.
Most cybercrime is breaking and entering. The criminals survey the neighborhood looking for unlocked doors, open windows, and homes unprotected by alarms. An unpatched server, an unencrypted backup tape, a successful phishing attack: there are hundreds of small operational vulnerabilities in every law firm. Even a great deal of money spent on network security will not help you if you leave the house without closing the window.
The biggest security threat to most law firms is a reactive, ad hoc approach to information security. You might shut the window, but leave the back door unlocked.
A risk assessment is not ‘insurance’ against a breach. It is a map of your vulnerabilities, large and small. It provides the insight needed to quickly address serious problems and to build a plan to fix smaller problems over time.
During this session, you will see how a successful risk assessment is carried out using a standard methodology (ISO 27001/2). We will demonstrate how managing risk, as opposed to reacting to vulnerabilities, enables a strategic engagement with firm management and a positive dialogue with clients. We will also review best practices for managing an incident in which a security breach has occurred.
