Lawyers hold some of their clients’ most private communications, which makes them a top target of all hackers. As technology competence becomes the required norm, lawyers need to understand not only how to protect their clients’ information but how to react if a cyber attack does happen. On this episode of Digital DetectivesSharon D. Nelson, Esq. and John W. Simek invite Steven Chabinsky to discuss cyber-risk management for lawyers.

Steven Chabinsky is senior vice president of legal affairs, general counsel, and chief risk officer for the cyber-security-technology firm CrowdStrike. He is also is an adjunct faculty member of George Washington University and the cyber columnist for Security Magazine. Prior to joining CrowdStrike, Chabinsky had a distinguished 17-year career with the FBI, during which he was the top cyber lawyer, then the head of the Cyber Intelligence Section, and ultimately deputy assistant director of the FBI’s Cyber Division.

Tune in to hear the major threats law firms are facing, what lawyers should do if their systems are hacked, and the future of cyber threats and cyber security.
