Quantifying Cyber Risk – Lessons from 2023

Arctic Wolf is the security operations provider for over 6000 organisations globally including a large cohort of legal customers.

Drawing from their experience in security operations as well as working major breach response for over 1000 cases last year, this session will explore the reality of the cyber risk facing law firms today and will explore the unique challenges that mid-sized firms face compared to large organisations.

Key Learnings

In this session we will:

  1. Cover the real costs incurred associated with responding to a cyber breach based on 1100+ real cases over the last 9 months of 2023.
  2. Explore the dominant cause of these breaches and what can be done about it.
  3. Look at the challenges faced by law firms related to addressing cyber risk
