A 2016 American Bar Association survey showed that more than 25% of law firms had at least one data security breach in that year. In the spring of 2017, the Association of Corporate Counsel (“ACC”) released their Model Information Protection and Security Controls for Outside Counsel Possessing Company Confidential Information (“Model ”). The Model provides best practices for data security that outside counsel should use to safeguard their company’s confidential information.
This webinar will show how outside counsel can best implement the ACC’s recommendations to avoid a potentially catastrophic data security breach. Instead of focusing on the easy and self-evident solutions to sections 3, 4, 7, and 8 of the Model, this presentation will focus on the areas where external counsel is most likely to encounter difficulties. During the webinar you will learn
- The variety of cybersecurity risks to outside counsel
- How to establish an Identity and Access Management program, to address section 5 of the Model
- How to incorporate multifactor authentication as a further control
- Effective cybersecurity monitoring solutions to address section 6 of the Model
