Start taking steps today to secure your law firm and your client’s confidential data! Written Information Security Programs (WISPs) are becoming essential in many states that have enacted data protection and business shield legislation. Many cybersecurity insurance carriers covering lawyers are starting to require WISPs. Setting aside legislative and insurance requirements, under the Rules of Professional Conduct, lawyers still must implement safe technologies and processes to safeguard client confidential data. Join us for this very practical session to learn the essential elements of a Written Information Security Program. In this session, we will cover ransomware attacks, phishing schemes, cloud computing, mobile device management, full disk encryption, secure document management, shadow-IT, two- factor authentication, password management, VPNs, anti-virus, backup, user education, and more.
