Cybersecurity and data privacy concerns continue to escalate, making this a hot legal market to enter. International, federal, state, and local laws and regulations in cybersecurity and data privacy are rapidly evolving in response to emerging issues that seem to change almost daily.
In response, organizations are working hard to comply and protect the information they hold, paving the way for law firm, in-house, and public sector opportunities for new lawyers, or lawyers in transition. Panelists will discuss how they got started in these areas and what they recommend for breaking into this growing and exciting area of the law.
