Published: 9th May 2023 | In: News

As one of the UK’s fastest growing cyber security companies defending more than 150 customers, including several leading names in the legal sector, we wouldn’t dream of missing the British Legal Technology Forum 2023. Europe’s largest legal technology conference and exhibition is so important that this year we’re presenting a session, participating in a panel discussion and sponsoring the FutureTech Stage.

Held in London on 10th May, the event is expected to attract 1,200 decision makers to hear presentations, understand the state of the sector and discover how all manner of innovative technologies can help them.

Some of this year’s topics are red hot. Sessions will cover subjects from automation and moving systems to the cloud, to artificial intelligence and machine learning, through to legal services in the metaverse. Like in every other sector, professionals are grappling with how best to use the latest tools to improve productivity, reduce costs and gain an edge on the competition.

The ‘Quorum Cyber’ FutureTech Stage

Our sponsored stage, chaired by David Fazakerley, Director of IT at Saffery Champness, will explore the next generation of law and artificial intelligence, and the evolving cyber threat landscape. The schedule starts at 10:30 and runs until 15:15. Throughout the day, speakers will share the latest insights from technologies that have the potential to change the legal sector faster than any have for years, including the chatbot that everyone’s talking about today: ChatGPT.

It’s sure to be hugely popular as law technology professionals try to understand how to take advantage of the latest technology while ensuring that their organisations are protected from external threats and insider risks.

You can’t spend your way out of cyber risk

Our Founder & CEO Federico Charosky will give a talk called ‘You can’t spend your way out of cyber risk’ on the FutureTech Stage at 11.35 – 11:50. He’ll also be taking part in a panel discussion titled ‘The View from the Vendors’ on the same stage at 13:20 – 13:45. Federico will be talking to Aditya Udas, Vice President and Head of Digital Commercial at Iron Mountain, Josephine Good, Practice Consultant at Kira Systems, and David Fazakerley.

They will debate a range of issues including the potential of digital/technical disruption in law and technology, the opportunities for growth and the challenges they face. The panel will also discuss what the future landscape looks like as well as how to work with vendors in an agile world.

The threat landscape in the legal sector

The legal sector is a prime target for threat actors who are continuously exploring new ways to breach IT systems and steal confidential information to sell on the dark web. For law firms, barristers’ chambers and legal professional bodies who may not have the skills and know-how to protect their data, phishing attacks and ransomware attacks remain considerable risks, as are insider risk and data loss. We have years of experience collaborating with the sector to minimise risk.
