Whether you are technologically savvy or still do not use a smartphone, cybersecurity threats pose a risk to you and your clients on a daily basis. Because of the increasing importance cybersecurity plays in our personal and professional lives, this year, the Spring Symposium will focus on cybersecurity. Specifically, the Symposium will examine cybersecurity from the perspective of law enforcement, law firms, clients, and insurers. During the Symposium, presenters will address current and emerging cybersecurity threats, protecting your firm and your clients from cybersecurity threats, responding to cybersecurity breaches, securing confidential medical information from cybersecurity breaches, insurance coverage issues arising from cybersecurity breaches, and ethical issues specific to cybersecurity.
