The objectives of this webinar are to help you learn to identify and understand your firm's potential Cybercrime vulnerabilities, and what steps to take to reduce your exposure to Cyber-related dangers.

We have all heard about Cybercrime, but do you know just how great the risk to your law firm is? According to one practicePRO article, “Cybercrime dangers are many, complex and ever changing…. Cyber criminals have considerable resources and expertise, and can cause significant damage to their targets. Cyber criminals specifically target law firms as law firms regularly have funds in their trust accounts and client data that is often very valuable.”
