In today’s world, the global pandemic has created an increased risk environment of cybersecurity threats, data breaches, vendor risks and third-party supply chain issues. Increasing directives from clients for changes in business practices has made it imperative for all law firms to include documented evidence of compliance and risk mitigation practices in their business continuity programs. Compliance with audits issued by clients, stricter RFP guidelines, regulatory requirements and meeting industry standards have now changed the playing field for business continuity globally. This session will share best practices for responding to audits and RFP’s and address how best to create a comprehensive vendor risk management program that will keep your law firm resilient in the face of any threat.
