The continuing global health crisis has prompted an unprecedented move towards whole workforces working remotely. But this move has come with heightened risks. Many legal counsel and law firm advisers are dusting off their clients' privacy, confidentiality and cyber-insurance policies to ensure their companies and clients are doing all they can to avoid data breaches and manage cyber-attacks.
Legal webinar overview

Thomson Reuters is pleased to present a webinar for legal professionals, both working at law firms and in-house, addressing compliance, responsibilities and the legislative areas to consider in respect of cyber security, data protection and privacy. By joining this complimentary panel discussion, you will hear from the top industry, academic and legal experts and walk-away with practical tips and guidance to assist you as you proceed through these unprecedented times.
Areas of discussion

  • Cyber security: How will your client put the security wrap around its digital environment with a remote workforce?

  • Ransoms: Is it illegal to pay a ransom and how should you manage such a crisis if it comes your way?

  • Cyber insurance policies: When should you contact your insurer and how can they help? What coverage do you need – does coverage extend to employees working from home? What happens if your legal department or client does not have adequate insurance to cover a cyber-attack?

  • Litigation fears and risks of data breaches: Hear how your firm or in-house legal department can mitigate the risks and employ best-practices to prepare for and respond to a data breach scenario. How can you update your data breach response plan to be fit for the pandemic? When should you engage external counsel?

  • Lessons from COVIDSafe: The legal industry has responded to the launch of the contact tracing app and the legislation that has followed. What can we learn from this and what does it signal about attitudes to privacy?

  • Back to work: How are organisations responding to being 'workplaces in transition'? Some organisations are employing additional technological surveillance tactics to monitor their staff and comply with government legislation in the APAC region. Hear some real-life stories to work out how best to proceed.
