Thursday 30 September | Session One

The changes instigated by the last 18 months have pushed many organisations to invest in new technology: a trend that is due to continue as we adapt to a post-pandemic world. During this panel discussion, our speakers will not only offer tips on procuring legal technology, but also share their experience of how you and your organisation can get the most out of your technology spend.

The panel discussion includes ample space for questions and discussion throughout.

As a result of remote working, cybersecurity attacks are currently considered to be among the most prominent threats faced by organisations. During this panel discussion, our speakers will reflect not only on the steps that firms should take before a cybersecurity breach occurs, but also advise on what organisations need to do after a breach to mitigate the effects of cyber attacks.
