All attorneys travel and work overseas, away from the relative safety and security of their firm’s enterprise systems. While traveling and working overseas, an attorney still needs a computer, telephone, and electronics communications to conduct their client’s business. By necessity, the attorney will use the best means available in their environment to conduct their work. Those best available means however may pose a significant risk to the confidential client information the attorney routinely handles.
Cyber criminals, including nation-states, see the overseas traveling attorney as a ripe target for exploitation. These bad actors often have the home field advantage, and use it to exploit services such as a hotel Wi-Fi system or local mobile phone system to gain information to target and exploit the electronic devices of the overseas attorney.
This program will examine how bad actors use on-line digital litter and social engineering to build a profile of the attorney. Then, using this profile, finds ways to gain electronic access to an attorney’s computer or phone. Our speakers will relate a few of the myriad ways this electronic infiltration occurs. The speakers will also discuss what simple steps one can take to protect their sensitive business and personal information from prying eyes while also preserving the attorney client privilege.
While no strategy can guarantee complete digital safety during work while traveling, an understanding of real-world threats, including the tactics employed by cyber adversaries, allows private practitioners, in-house counsel, and firm specialists to take practical and effective steps to minimize the risk of exposure and significantly reduce the likelihood of an unfortunate crippling event.
