Law firms continue to face cybersecurity attacks. Paralegals are uniquely positioned to act as intermediaries among IT professionals, third-party vendors and other legal professionals. Since the first line of defence against cyberattacks is training, this course introduces paralegals to information governance, cybersecurity threats and vulnerabilities, risk management assessments and reporting requirements, data governance principles, privacy, security and prevention practices within a law firm environment.
