Kraft Kennedy is proud to join ALA (Association of Legal Administrators) for their 2019 NYC Symposium! Be sure to catch our law firm cybersecurity expert David Owusu in “Big Apple Bites – Cybersecurity | Firms Responding in Real time | Showdown Edition.”

Direct from the trenches of 3rd Avenue and 40th, a first-person account of how a firm responded to a cyber attack, minute-by-minute and hour-by-hour. We then zoom out to survey threats afflicting the legal industry at large. Our lens pivots to the most common threats, namely ransomware and other malicious breaches, which can have devastating and wide-reaching affects, often an existential threat to a firm. These attacks often start with something astonishingly simple, like a phishing email. We dissect the anatomy of a phishing email, how it is connected to ransomware, and why we – the humans – are unfortunately the weakest link in any cybersecurity program. Takeaways include practical suggestions to keep your firm safe in the current cyber threatscape.


Our project manager expert Pat Mansuy will also be participating in “Perfecting the Pitch to the Managing Partner: ALANYC meets Shark Tank”
