Keynote: Legal Innovation: Back to the Future, or the End of History?

Theme Session: Innovation in Law Firm Security

Keynote - Be Not Afraid: Security in the Age of Breaches

How should legal teams think about security when breaches seem to happen every day? In brief, breaches do not happen at "light speed;" they are not the victim's fault; and offense isn't inherently dominant online. FireEye strategist Richard Bejtlich will explain that a shift in strategy is the key to success.

The panel – moderated by Chrissie Lightfoot – will discuss the implications of Richard’s presentation. The discussion will focus on what can (and already has) been done by law firms to successfully fight possible cyber attacks and other digital security issues.
