What if you came into the office to realize your law firm's critical data had been held for ransom, or worse, deleted. What do you do next? In this program first we will review the "Hack Action Plan" to mitigate the impact of a breach or ransomware. Then we will explore the 'anatomy of the hack' - how did they get into our client files in the first place and how can we guard against it in the future? Finally we will look at how to determine your firm's overall risk map and low cost/no cost steps you can take to harden your defenses.

Speaker: Brian Brammeier, CEO of HigherGround Managed Services and former Security Engineer at Discover Card
