This second edition is a must read for anyone working in the field including private practice attorneys and associates, in-house counsel, non-profit and government attorneys and others.

Since the release of the first edition published in 2013, cybersecurity breaches in law firms have made news headlines and clients are asking questions about lawyers' and firms' security programs. From the massive Panama Papers breach that led to the dissolution of the Mossack Fonseca Law Firm in April 2016 to the WannaCry and Petya Ransomware attacks, the latter that led to the several day work outage at DLA Piper in June 2017, it is imperative that attorneys understand the potential risk of weak information security practices to their practices and their clients.

Co-edited by cybersecurity leaders, Jill D. Rhodes and Robert S. Litt, former General Counsel of the Director of National Intelligence, This updated edition will enable you to identify potential cybersecurity risks and prepare you to respond in the event of an attack. It addresses the current overarching threat as well as ethical issues and special considerations for law firms of all sizes. The Handbook also includes the most recent ABA Ethics Opinions and illustrates how you should approach the subject of cybersecurity threats and issues with clients as well as when and how to purchase and use cyber insurance.
