Navigating the Threat Landscape – The Modern Approach

Exclusive Virtual Roundtable Hosted by Check Point, in partnership with LegalTech Talks.

LegalTech Talks followed by an exclusive gin cocktail-making experience live 22nd April at 15:00 – 16:30 BST 

The stakes have never been higher for businesses to get cybersecurity right. With the sense of urgency and risk landscape ever increasing due to: additional corporate private and public Cloud platform requirements, new products, applications, and web capabilities, not to mention securing the increasing number of remote workers because of the pandemic. Some of whom may not necessarily be ‘tech experts’.

This session will look at the increase in sophisticated cyber-attacks and the pressure that security teams are under to protect organizations while under-staffed, under-equipped, and under budget. What would be the right modern approach?

  • Old World vs New World in the Legal Sector within an era of work anywhere anytime, any place
  • MFA and remote working; overnight transformation into the cloud, what does this mean for teams and the widespread challenges it presents?
  • Supporting the cultural shift and future proofing the workforce through agile leadership and streamlined budgets.

We are delighted to announce that Downton Distillery will be hosting an exciting ‘Gin Cocktail Making’ experience during this session, to take part simply opt in on the registration form and a gin cocktail kit will be sent out to you*.
