Looking Back on ILTA LegalSEC 2018

Written by: Christina Adams, Corporate Marketing Manager – Each year, hundreds of professionals come together at ILTA LegalSEC to find solutions for their toughest security challenges. One of the primary concerns raised was client confidentiality. It is absolutely critical to protect client data and law firms go to great lengths to protect it. However, because of their wealth of private information, law firms are increasingly targeted by cybercriminals. With constantly evolving threats from APTs to ransomware to employees clicking on malicious phishing emails, it remains an uphill battle for law firms to keep up with attackers seeking to exfiltrate and exploit valuable client data. This year, there was an emphasis placed on addressing these core challenges and exploring the cybersecurity strategies that firms can incorporate to better protect their networks through collaboration with peers.
