LegalTech Talks – live 15th December 2020 at 15:00 (GMT).
Going far beyond traditional attack detection, sophisticated machine learning systems help organizations stay one step ahead of fraudsters.
With the threat landscape rapidly evolving this session will discuss the importance of ML in counteracting cybercrime and protecting critical infrastructure within firms.
While greater connectivity and digitalisation promises to enhance legal services, this also paves the way for the emergence of new vulnerabilities. This session will debate the effectiveness of traditional methods of cybersecurity and discuss whether the sector is doing enough to combat cybercrime.

After working in administration at A&O, Janet set up a specialist consultancy practice looking at technology services (in their widest sense) for legal firms.
She joined BLP about 19 years ago – initially as a consultant but later as their IT Director with a wide range of responsibilities. She normally says ‘if it plugs into an electric socket and does not make coffee it belongs to me!’
She was responsible for technology in its broadest sense, including ecommerce activities, knowledge management services and the building and infrastructure.
