Not if but when: How prepared are you to manage cybersecurity and privacy risks?
Monday 9 October (0930 - 1230)
Regulation of Lawyers Committee
This session will seek to explore the interrelated issues that are necessary to prepare for, respond to, manage and recover from concerning cybersecurity and privacy-related risks. Law firms are increasingly becoming the targets for sophisticated and opportunistic criminals looking to obtain access to client funds, confidential client and/or personal information – either for immediate financial gain or potential ransom or extortion demands, or to perpetrate identity or social engineering frauds. This session will identify the components of a strategic approach to identifying, managing/responding and mitigating cybersecurity and privacy risks, specifically: how to look at your organisational approach; identifying and containing the issue through forensic information technology expertise; how to manage communications with clients; what reports to relevant regulators are required; potential reputation damage and necessary remediation and/or mandatory corrective communications or monitoring; and how to ensure you are properly insured,managing your insurers and maximising what is recoverable.
