The news these days is full of stories about cyber-attacks and hacking.  Lost among the headlines is the deadly peril that law firms face as hackers target their often insecure computer systems as an easy means of stealing confidential client data and secrets.

DRI has scheduled a special webcast on June 17 from 2-3:30 Eastern featuring Aon’s Doug Richmond and Shari Lewis of Gordon & Rees discussing how these attacks occur, what obligations lawyers have to protect client secrets, practical steps that law firms can (or must) take to safeguard against such risks and what kind of existing or novel insurance products are available to provide coverage against malpractice claims arising out of data theft and insecurity.

This program is a must for law firms worried about such claims, insurance claims professionals handling E&O exposures for law firms and lawyers defending E&O claims.  

The price is $150 for DRI members, $180 for the rest of you.  I convinced DRI to put on this webcast because I think that it fills a need.  Hopefully, you’ll see that need to and attend.
