Mandiant, an information security company, said it estimates that 80 major U.S. law firms were hacked last year. Computer security is not only an ethical responsibility, it is a legislative requirement for some law firms. Come learn best practices for maintaining secure defenses to assure file confidentiality, avoiding downtime from malware or virus attack, and mitigating risk from data breach.

We will discuss options for protecting everything from desktops to mobile devices including password management, encryption, intrusion detection, and creating policies to help protect client and firm information. Resources for keeping up with emerging threats will also be included.
