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.
Mr. Bambara was very knowledgeable and informative. His lecture was a real eye opener and thought provoking. I hope he remains with Lawline.
Very informative - lots to think about.
Mr. Bambara is probably my favorite presenter. The two CLEs I've watched with him have been more engaging and educational than any others.
Great and energetic speaker. Good information.
I learned a lot. I had heard of bitcoin, but didn't know much about it before the course.
This is one of the best Lawline seminars I have listened to. The speaker was lively and engaging, and there was a tremendous amount of useful information in a very short time.
Was a great presentation and a lot of useful info.
Excellent presentation; very timely and beneficial for my future knowledge
please add more courses on blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies
This gentleman was a fantastic presenter.
Excellent and look forward to more from this speaker
More, More. Excellent, excellent presentation and captivating.
outstanding supplementary content on cybercrime and currencies
This course would make for a good starting point for a tech ethics course.
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.
Really good information...
WOW. This should scare the crap out of non-computer-literate attorneys. It's going to be the backbone of practice and we have GOT to be literate with this.
Very good course and speaker.
Outstanding presentation with a lot of new information - very interesting.
