Why attend

Thank you, I really enjoyed yesterday and your administration of the event was excellent.

InformationSecurity and Compliance Officer, Field Fisher Waterhouse LLP

There were some superb speakers and the presentations were at a sufficiently fast pace to keep the audience engaged. I shall ensure I attend the next one.


A fascinating conference giving useful insights and practical tips on security. Law firms must step up to the challenge and this course was a great starting point for that.

Director. IP, Innovation, Technology, Jeffrey Green Russell Limited

The presentations were very relevant to the job I do and to the challenge which I suspect many law firms are facing today. I'd recommend it to anyone who has ever responded to a client security questionnaire or is on any part of the path towards ISO accreditation.

Head of IT Operations, Osborne Clarke

Once again AKJ organised a fantastic event with a good selection of speakers and topics relevant to the challenges of legal IT.

Infrastructure Support Manager, Taylor Wessing LLP

I found the conference very informative, a real eye opener!

Head of IT, TWM Solicitors LLP

The fourth Securing the Law Firm conference was a good opportunity to meet and hear from professionals working in law firm information security. Presentations were short, well-informed and stimulating and there was plenty of time for informal discussion between sessions.

The content of the presentations was thought provoking and well delivered. I have taken away some valuable points which I will raise for follow up. I also took the opportunity to meet vendors and talk to delegates from other law firms!

Information Security Officer, Ashurst LLP

I would recommend this event to any law firm serious about maintaining their privileged client relationships in the 21st Century.

Why Sponsor

After Ian Pratt, our founder, spoke our team on the stand was inundated with enquiries, with several projects already under way! Those twenty minutes alone, made the event extremely useful.
Director of Sales – Europe, Bromium

A great event bringing together law firms to discuss a common challenge…more events like this please so we can further collaborate and share ideas on how we can apply the best security available.
Information Security & Strategy Officer EMEA, Websense

This was our first time at the event and what a pleasure it was to work with such a professional team. An impressive list of delegates and speakers with plenty of food for thought from the varied presentations.
VP Alliances, Glasswall Solutions

The event really was excellent.
Managing Director EMEA, Airwatch

Congratulations to the team on managing yet another highly successful event. The pre-event co-ordination was extremely smooth. We were delighted by how well the delegates in attendance on the day matched our expectations!
Head of Marketing, Teneo

It was a very good event, very well organised, and communication throughout was great. The attendees were also very good. Very worthwhile event.
Solution Architect EMEA, Riverbed on behalf of Teneo

It was a fantastic event with a high turn out. For a presenting Vendor the return has been almost instantaneous with two Meetings booked and 8 immediate follow up discussions. The content was excellent, extremely relevant and we will definitely be doing this event again.
Major Account Manager, Fortinet

Delegates also have the chance to network and exchange insights about the latest industry developments in an invitation-only environment.
Key Themes
The Key Themes for September 2014 include:
  • Crossing the capability gap: meeting client expectations, and becoming compliant
  • Protecting against accidents: improving user awareness
  • Mitigating third-party risks: testing, monitoring, and auditing
  • Facilitating a secure user environment
More about the event...
Research by AKJ Associates over the last year has shown that security in the law firm is indisputably no longer an advantage, but a necessity. Law firms are eager now to catch up with industry leaders, such as the financial industry, who have dissolved business relationships with law firms on the basis of insufficient information security strategies.
Faced with client demands and increased external attacks targeting sensitive client data, the firms are therefore looking at the key reasons for the gaps between their relative information security postures and capabilities. Delegation attending this event has been from the following business functions:
 Group IT
 Information Security
 Technology Risk
 Group Security
 Business Continuity
 Digital Forensics
 Fraud Prevention
