Resilience for realists:
How careful outsourcing and proportionate in-house resourcing can deliver better cybersecurity
Like other industries, the legal sector is finding out that digital disruption cuts many ways.
Technology is being used both to deliver efficiencies in the current business model, and to begin the journey towards a new one. As a result, cybersecurity itself is a critical component of those new business initiatives: digitalisation means exposure and vulnerability.
Because many firms are building security capabilities almost from scratch, they have a one-off opportunity to choose the structure of their cybersecurity effort, and in particular to look at the role of outsourcing.
For many firms, a judicious mix of off-premises technologies with a reduced in-house function makes far more sense than trying to resource a fully-featured cybersecurity department.
In this model, everything is up for re-evaluation.
This year we’ll be attending with Silver Peak and Palo Alto Networks, talking about Robust Multi-level Security for the Cloud-Connected Enterprise.
Securing The Law Firm will cover this and other key subjects for its audience of professionals tasked with safeguarding digital assets and sensitive data. There will be real-life case studies, strategic talks and technical break-out sessions from security teams behind some of the world’s most admired brands, who know, just like you, that security is now more important to business than ever.
