Master Class: Understanding Cyber Risk Quantification for the Law Firm

When:  Oct 4, 2022 from 12:00 to 13:30 (ET)


Law Firms need to be able to calculate and put a dollar value on their exposure to cyber risk. This is the starting point for the ability to make cybersecurity decisions not in a vacuum but as part of overall business decisions. To accurately quantify cybersecurity exposure, companies need to understand what the threats are and which data and business assets are at risk. They then need to multiply the cost of a breach by the probability that such an event will take place to put a dollar figure on their exposure. This webinar will bring clarity to cyber risk quantification and will evaluate the benefits of understanding risk as a business decision.
