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.

About Securing the Law Firm
Now in its third edition, Securing the Law Firm is the leading e-crime and information security forum specifically aimed at key IT security decision-makers in the legal services. Welcoming an audience of over 100 professionals, it is the largest gathering of its kind. Whether it is espionage, insider risk, or insecure transfer platforms, the threats facing lawfirms are manifold. This event offers practical guidance and strategic insights through a balance of educational seminars and expert presentations in front of those responsible for protecting reputation, setting technology strategy, and ensuring compliance in the protection of sensitive data. Delegates also have the chance to network and exchange insights about the latest industry developments in an invitation-only environment. 
Key Themes
Law firms are eager to catch up with leaders such as the financial industry. Faced with client demands and increasing external attacks on sensitive client data, firms are looking at the key reasons for the gaps between their relative information security postures and capabilities. 
  • 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
  •  Audit
  •  Compliance
  •  Infrastructure
  •  CERT
  •  Group Security
  •  Business Continuity
  •  Digital Forensics
  •  Fraud Prevention
