BIA Hosts Interactive Presentation On Cyber Security

NEW YORK, Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Business Intelligence Associates , Inc. ( BIA), an eDiscovery software and services leader and sponsor of the upcoming LegalTech tradeshow ( January 29-31 at the Hilton New York), announces more details of their upcoming presentation on the risks and liabilities that law firms face with respect to the increasing prevalence of cyber security threats – especially in light of recent security incidents involving law firms and the risks to client data.

BIA Co-Founder Alon Israely, CISSP, Esq. and Lawrence Husick, Esq., co-chair of the Foreign Policy Research Institute's Center for the Study of Terrorism, will deliver a must-see presentation titled Hacked! CyberThreats to Lawyers, Law Firms and Their Clients. Guests who attend the presentation are encouraged to engage with Israely and Husick by asking questions and interacting with the presenters in an effort to create a dynamic and conversational event.  LTN has named this session one of the must-see panels of the conference and Former National Security Advisor Robert C. "Bud" McFarlane has praised Husick's cyberthreat briefings as "The best I've heard from anyone, anywhere [sic]."

"Last year, information security company Mandiant estimated that as many as 80 major law firms were hacked last year by China-based hackers," noted Israely. "The statistics are startling, but the subject is still taboo in the eDiscovery community. There are real risks faced by law firms and clients, and the potential for liability should not be ignored. This presentation will address these risks and deliver actionable insights that any eDiscovery professional can implement in their organization to immediately reduce their liability and exposure to these risks." 

Husick points out that, "The information entrusted to attorneys, whether in private, corporate, or government practice is often the client's most valuable asset. That is why lawyers and their organizations have become the 'soft underbelly' of the cybersecurity world, and why they need to get up-to-speed in protecting their clients' information as well as they advocate their clients' positions."
