Cyber resilience for boutique practices: Practical strategies to prevent and mitigate cyber events and data breaches


Cybercrime is predicted to lead to the biggest transfer of wealth in human history, and in Australia cyber-security incidents have been estimated to cost businesses up to $29 billion per year. Your legal practice and your client data could be a target because you act on high-value funds transfers, or hold confidential and sensitive information.

In this session you will learn:
• The human factors in cyber risk, email fraud and data breaches.
• Ways in which professional duties can be impacted by changes in technology.
• How a five-step approach that focuses on both prevention and mitigation strategies can help protect you, your business and your clients.
