Law firms face some very unique dynamics related to not only physical risks, but especially data (not to be confused with "cyber") and reputational risks, the latter being the cornerstone of your business.
Learning to "profile" potential threats within your law firm are essential to safeguarding all three areas of concern. So who poses such potential threat and how do you more readily identify these to mitigate your risks?
What Will Be Covered?
Threats to you and your practice or firm can be manifest in physical, data and/or reputational concerns. Not all will be motivated by the obvious. Likewise, not all will come from external players. How do you go about better mitigating the *internal* risks to your practice or firm via some internal profiling of your own?
Who Should Attend?
While not limited, we recommend the following: HR directors/managers, risk managers, IT/Security directors, and PR managers/directors. Basically anyone in upper management tasked with reducing liability as well as reputational issues. Another way to think of it, if something happened, who would be called in or put in front of the media to defend you or your firm's position or actions? Those are the individuals who should attend.
