Cybersecurity is only as strong as your weakest link. No matter how well you shore up your firm or 
corporate legal department, you can still become vulnerable through a vendor. Chances are you’ve 
heard of more than one company recently that has suffered costly, embarrassing, and damaging 
breaches that jeopardized customer relationships. For corporate legal departments, the weak link may 
be an outside law firm. For a law firm, the weak link may be a deposition services provider. 

 

What can happen if the deposition services provider systems are hacked? 
-  Personally identifiable information of lawyers, clients, witnesses and others can be grabbed 
from transcripts, scheduling and billing systems.

-  Confidential documents pertaining to undisclosed settlement terms can be exposed in the 
media or used for blackmail.

-  Private health information can be exposed, risking a HIPAA violation.

-  Deposition transcripts, exhibits, videos and more can be stolen, changed, destroyed, altered, or 
publicized. 

All of these scenarios jeopardize cases and reputations, potentially putting law firms out of business.  
Companies that hire law firms and law firms that hire deposition services providers are becoming 
increasingly concerned about these risks. Two-thirds of chief legal officers view cybersecurity as very or 
extremely important, according to the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) Chief Legal Officers 2017 
Survey.


Agenda Topics:


1. Law Firms and Corporate Legal Departments are Enticing Targets to Cybercriminals
2. Why Chief Legal Officers View Cybersecurity as Very or Extremely Important  
3. Model Cybersecurity Practices for Law Firms and Corporate Legal Departments 
4. Third-Party Security Concerns for Law Firms and Corporate Legal Departments
5. The Human Factor: Transferring Risk from Home to the Workplace
