Karen Painter Randall, Chair of Connell Foley's Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Group, teams up with Daniel Sutherland, Chief Counsel with the Cybersecurity Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA)/Homeland Security, to present "Current Issues in the Ever-Changing Landscape of Cybersecurity for Law Firms" at the 2020 USLAW NETWORK Managing Partner and Law Firm Leaders Forum.
CISA is responsible for protecting the nation’s critical infrastructure from physical and cyber threats. This mission requires effective coordination and collaboration among a broad spectrum of government and private sector organizations.

They will also discuss what firms are doing with infrastructure and personnel to mitigate risk, the scope of digital threats, and how best to support clients in cyber-related incidents.
