1:30 PM Session: Retrofitting Security into Your Remote Environment

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, many of us have spun up new collaboration systems, expanded remote access, and/or deployed remote access to staff not accustomed to the security implications of remote working. This session will explore what organizations did ahead of time to mitigate associated risks or what has to be done now to “close the barn door” once the security horses have escaped.

2:30 PM Break

3:00 PM Session: Business Continuity Planning

So you've implemented a plan to collect comprehensive backups. You've given lawyers laptops so they can work from home. And suddenly POW you now have a global pandemic. Were you ready? Could it have worked better? Are you a hero that just earned at least a couple years of (near) automatic budget approval?

This hour will focus on Business Continuity Planning (BCP), and how you incorporate your vendors into those plans. We'll cover Business Impact Assessments and how they form the foundation of your BCPs, as well as supporting plans such as Disaster Recovery, Incident Response and Emergency Communication plans. We'll spend some time on testing plans - both your testing, and how to verify your vendors are testing too - and how you can use those tests to inform the selection of infrastructure, backup service providers (if necessary) and the possible modification of policies for the duration of the event - or maybe even permanently. Finally, we'll provide some pointers on effective plan maintenance (hint: tabletop exercises and risk assessment will be a part of it ...)

4:00 PM Exhibit Hall / Networking Break

We’ll explore leveraging meaningful risks to your advantage and the truths that are revealed by doing so – the obstacles you think are in your way of those big aspirations may not be the ones you think they are. Isn’t it time you channeled your inner Evil Knievel and redefined risk for yourself? Your empire is waiting.

3:00 PM Session: The Poor Man’s Security Operation Center (SOC) – Tools and Resources for Analysis

Security is hard. Analysis is hard. Environments with a mature security posture or a team of dedicated security employees can spend thousands if not millions of dollars every year on the tools necessary to gain visibility and insight into the bombardment of threats seen on a daily basis. All law firms may not have the budget to buy shiny new tool, however the need exists to perform basic threat intelligence tasks. For those who need quick and actionable results, there are a plethora of open source and free tools available to security people for threat hunting, sandboxing, static analysis or reputation checks.
