Law Firm Guidance For Protecting Client Data From Breaches (breakfast event)

Tuesday, December 03 | 8:30am Central Daylight Time

Rise and shine with Duo Security at the Chicago Cut Steakhouse on December 3, where you'll spend the morning:

  • Learning from Duo’s head of the Advisory CISO team, Wendy Nather, and recognized legal malpractice and cybersecurity expert, Steven Puiszis
  • Discussing lawyers' and law firms' responsibilities in protecting client data from breaches
  • Networking with cybersecurity experts from Chicago-area law firms
  • Enjoying a delicious breakfast on us

Did you know that lawyers and law firms have an ethical obligation to protect client information from a data breach? That was the finding in a recent ABA opinion.

Fortunately, the ABA has provided some guidelines on how to avoid an ethical violation, and on December 3rd at 8:30 am, Duo will host a group of cybersecurity experts from law firms around Chicago for a breakfast meeting at Chicago Cut to discuss best practices. We would love for you to join us!

If you're available, please RSVP above to let us know you're coming. We look forward to seeing you there.
