Law Firms are Pressed on Security for Data – New York Times

As a group of hundreds of large, medium and small organizations, many in the legal community have been working together to accelerate the maturation of cybersecurity practices with a goal of leapfrogging expectations.

The major components of the effort leverage certification and alignment to international standards with a focus on security above and beyond compliance, as well as how firms are sharing threat intelligence and improvements in security practices.

Tune in to this exclusive presentation as Peter Kaomea, CIO of Sullivan & Cromwell LLP and Chair of the International Legal Technology Association’s LegalSEC, and John Evangelakos, a Partner of Sullivan & Cromwell LLP and the Chair of the firm’s Data Security Committee, discuss the “unified theory” of how these security standards and information exchange practices are evolving.
