*Minnesota Lawyers Mutual has arranged for 1.0 hour
of CLE credit in VA and PA.

Per data security experts, two types of companies exist, “those that have been hacked and those that don’t know they have been hacked.”

  • Find out how criminals steal data and infiltrate computer networks.
  • Hear true stories of law firms that were hacked and learn steps you can take today to protect your firm’s data.

Most importantly:

  • What is expected of you and your firm as it relates to keeping your data safe?
  • What are your responsibilities if you have a data breach?
  • What legal action might you face?

There will be time for you to ask questions and get answers from a lawyers’ professional liability company’s point of view.

Light lunch will be provided.
