It seems to be a technical risk, yet it will be the lawyer defending the firm's actions to regulators, in third party lawsuits, and to internal constituencies. With cyber threats increasing in volume and sophistication and a stricter regulatory framework around data privacy worldwide, cyber risk is a key concern for legal and risk leaders.

This presentation will cover the cyber risk landscape in 2021, covering highest-impact threats, most commonly targeted assets, and the methods used by threat actors (whether external or internal).
