Cybersecurity is now top of mind for many lawyers, law firms, and government agencies as increased numbers of lawyers and staff members are working from home and more services are being provided remotely due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Our speakers will discuss the threats that lawyers face, what you need to know about the reasonable security requirement in the NY SHIELD Act that takes effect on March 21, 2020, and the cybersecurity related obligations of lawyers. They will also outline steps you can take to improve your cybersecurity, using the Global Cyber Alliance’s free cybersecurity tool kit and will walk you through what you need to do to put this valuable resource to work to protect you and your clients.
