Program Description:

We are all aware of, and probably have experienced first-hand, the effects of an unwanted data breach. Maybe you were forced to change an online password, acquire a new credit card number or you lost important files corrupted by malware.  At best, these incidences have been hassles. At worst, entire identities and fortunes can be compromised.

Now, consider your law firm and its clients. What effects would a data breach have on the work-product, attorney/client privilege and financial stability of these organizations?

The growing interest in cybersecurity comes as no surprise considering how much important information could be at risk. As key information professionals, librarians should be aware of cybersecurity trends and their impacts on the legal industry.

Join your Thomson Reuters Librarian Relations Manager, Blythe McCoy, and Technical Client Manager, Patrick Barry, for a presentation on this hot topic:  Cybersecurity Trends. The Threat, Impact and Awareness of Law Firm Security. We will discuss:

  • Status of law firms and corporate security
  • Actions to mitigate security risks
  • Current & Proposed legislation on point
  • Librarian leadership views on the legislation
  • Changes to Thomson Reuters business practices for increased security
