The legal industry is at the forefront of advances and changes in the cybersecurity arena – acting as a trusted advisor to businesses, but also grappling with these same changes from the perspective of its own cyber resilience. Legal professionals are uniquely positioned to identify the technological, legislative and organisational challenges that are pertinent now, and in the future.
Based on the 2019 Roadshow Cybersecurity Survey (‘Survey’) of 250 legal practitioners, LexisNexis hosted panel discussions with legal, cybersecurity and data privacy industry thought leaders across Australia to explore the current landscape of cybersecurity and the law. Live polling of attendees was conducted at each event.
Decoding Cybersecurity: Clause and Effect examines the issues around cybersecurity for the Australian legal industry in 2019. It distils quantitative and qualitative data taken from a diverse range of Australian legal professionals on topics including Australia’s legislative environment, compliance for businesses, issues specific to the legal industry, as well as recommendations for best practice now and in the future.
