Demystifying cyber security for your firm

A half-day seminar for lawyers with practical strategies from cyber security provides on how to safeguard their firms.




Law firms are prime targets for cyber-fraud and 2019  has seen an unprecedented increase in incidents across Victoria. Cyber security should now be an essential part of legal practice management, but many firms don’t know where to start. LPLC and the LIV have joined forces to bring a practical approach to supporting lawyers to secure their practices.

This half-day seminar will give lawyers an opportunity to hear from cyber security service providers about practical strategies to safeguard their firms from cyber-attack and why it is so important. Practitioners will have the opportunity to ask questions and consider the options in a relaxed atmosphere, rather than in a crisis situation.
