Bradley attorney Erin Illman was quoted in LegalTech News on the privacy and cyber risks associated with video conferencing. With the coronavirus pandemic causing businesses around the world to turn to remote work, video conference platforms are becoming increasingly essential. However, with greater usage, comes greater cyber risks.
“I think there is always going to be cyber risks related to platforms given cyber criminals are always looking for vulnerabilities,” said Illman. “As long as there are cyber criminals looking for vulnerabilities, including in video conference platforms, there will always be that risk.”
For law firms that want to build their own video conference app, privacy by design and privileged access are crucial, Illman noted.
