Course Description

Time 61 minutes
Difficulty Beginner

This program, taught by Joseph Bambara, an expert and consultant in privacy and cybersecurity, will take a special look at law and technology as it pertains to the intersection of cybersecurity, cybercrime and cryptocurrencies. Recently, we have seen many malware attacks and hacks into large law firms, which have forced these firms to pay Bitcoin (cryptocurrency) ransoms to rescue their data. A recent hacking incident involved Chinese inside traders who broke into two of the most famous law firms, compromising confidential information about Wall Street banks and Fortune 500 companies in matters including lawsuits and multibillion-dollar merger negotiations. These technology trends are rapidly changing the way banking, business and legal transactions are done in the global marketplace.

It is incumbent on all law firms and attorneys to understand the risks and preventative steps that are ethically required to promote cybersecurity within their organizations and thereby prevent and mitigate the effect of cybercrime. This program will explore best practices in cybersecurity, as well as cryptocurrencies, the underlying blockchain technology, and smart contracts.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Analyze the latest trends in malware attacks and cybersecurity breaches
  2. Understand cryptocurrency technology and its intersection with cybersecurity breaches
  3. Identify how attorneys can prevent and mitigate cybercrimes and protect their clients

The presenter had an incredible amount of knowledge on the subject matter and was able to cover a significant amount of detail. I believe the program may have worked better as a 90 minute program as there was more than enough content to sustain a program of that length.
