On Monday, August 23, 2021, Josh Jones, Brian Ellis and Jorkeell Echeverria will present a Lawline webinar titled Examining Phishing in Law Firms: Tips for Attorneys to Combat Cybersecurity Attacks.
Cybercrime is a real and constant threat for any business, and news of cybersecurity incidents has become almost commonplace. In this environment, cybercriminals view law firms as attractive targets, as they are typically at the center of most complex business deals and financial transactions and can also host vast amounts of personal information. Needless to say, lawyers must establish safeguards sufficient to secure client and employee information, consistent with their ethical obligations.
The objective of this program is to discuss the importance of cybersecurity in the practice of law along with the ethical obligations presented and to raise awareness of the threats posed to law firms from phishing attacks.
