CYBER SECURITY SEMINAR

Cyber Security seminars from DPS

90% of corporations have experienced a cyber security breach in the last year. According to PwC’s 2015 Annual Law Firms’ Survey, 62% of law firms reported that they were the victims of a security incident, up from 45% in 2014.

Last year, almost half of cyber-attacks worldwide, namely 43%, were against small and medium-size businesses with less than 250 workers. It is clear that cyber-attacks affect law firms of all sizes.

The rise of the multi-disciplinary lawyer: A challenge for legal education

Catrina Denvir

The legal profession has been on the receiving end of much hype regarding the impact of technology. Recent commentators purport that the aspiring lawyer must be a triple threat, possessing knowledge of the law, coding expertise, and in-depth knowledge of legal technology. Yet, focusing on legal technology risks overlooking the need for skills that transcend latest fads. Legal technology is a means by which to handle data: to organise it, record it, extract it, analyse it, predict from it and leverage it. Quantitative and statistical literacy – the ability to understand, apply, visualise and infer from data – underpins technological literacy and yet receives very little attention from those who encourage innovation in the legal curriculum.
