[VIDEO] The New SEC Enforcement Division and Its Impact on Law Firms

by: Align

In response to the growing and polymorphic threat of cyberattacks (and a breach within their own system), the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced the creation of a Cyber Unit, with the purpose of building on its Enforcement Division's ongoing efforts to address cyber-based threats. The resultant effects  including new regulatory standards at a state and national level  promise to have widespread effects across areas of business, including law firms working with clients affected by legislative changes in the area of cybersecurity.

In the second part of a video series with Berdon Industry Insider, Align’s General Counsel and Managing Director of Align CybersecurityTM, John Araneo, recently sat down with Berdon LLP Audit Partner, John Fitzgerald, to discuss the effects of the SEC's Cyber Unit and the ripple effect cybersecurity standards will have on the legal industry.
