BIA to Sponsor, Present at Upcoming LegalTech Tradeshow

NEW YORK, Jan. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Nearly one in five law firms have been subject to a cyber-attack within the last 12 months, according to Legal Week. Hacking is a growing threat that firms need to address. Industry professionals, IT specialists and attorneys can get vital information on how to counter the risks at an upcoming conference sponsored by Business Intelligence Associates (BIA), a leader in eDiscovery: The LegalTech tradeshow, which showcases the latest legal technology, will take place January 29-31 at The Hilton New York in New York City. BIA co-founder Alon Israely, Esq., CISSP, will co-host an interactive discussion with Lawrence Husick, Esq. on the growing cyber threat faced by attorneys, law firms and clients.

LegalTech is the premier legal technology event of the year, providing law firms and legal professionals a wealth of information about technology developments in the industry that can improve practice management as well as an opportunity to network with industry leaders. Part of the ALM Conferences and Trade Shows group, LegalTech connects industry professionals with the knowledge and services they need to succeed in a competitive environment.

As an event sponsor, BIA is supplying notepads and pens to LegalTech attendees. The company is also offering attendees the opportunity to sign-up for special discounts and free use of certain functions of its online product, TotalDiscovery. Sign-up will be free for all attendees who stop by the BIA booth. BIA will also offer demonstrations of TotalDiscovery, its cloud-based eDiscovery software at Booth 1301.

As both an attorney and Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), BIA co-founder Alon Israely is uniquely qualified to address the issue of cyber threats and legal liabilities. He is an expert on effective techniques attorneys and law firm IT professionals can use to safeguard vital firm and client data.

"The cyber threats facing the legal industry aren't widely discussed, but they are an increasing risk factor," Israely noted. "Foreign agents looking to disrupt multibillion-dollar mergers have hacked law firm security networks, compromising extraordinarily sensitive information, and law firms and legal offices of all sizes have been subject to cyber-attacks. It's absolutely crucial for legal and IT professionals to know what they need to do to protect themselves." LegalTech attendees will have the opportunity to learn about emerging threats and ways to counter them at an interactive presentation hosted in part by Israely. Entitled "Hacked! Cyber-Threats to Lawyers, Law Firms and their Clients," the session begins on January 29 at 11:45 AM and is open to all LegalTech attendees.

Attorneys, legal industry IT specialists and others concerned about protecting confidential data and finding out about the latest in legal technology should plan on attending the upcoming LegalTech tradeshow and BIA's interactive session. Find out more about LegalTech at Discover more about BIA at
