Recorded: December 5, 2017


Recent breaches at top law firms have led many to question whether law firms are up to the task of ensuring confidentiality in an era of free-flowing digital information networks. At the same time, the resignation of Yahoo’s general counsel amid accusations its legal team failed to properly respond to a 2014 breach has brought the issue of data security to the doorstep of corporate law departments.

In this session, ALM Intelligence analysts will discuss the state of the legal services sector in the age of ever-present cybersecurity threats. Drawing on ALM Intelligence’s latest surveys of corporate law departments and law firms on the topic of data security, the presentation will give attendees an inside look at the challenges at the intersection of cybersecurity and legal services.

This program was recorded as part of ALM's CyberSecure on December 5th, 2017.
