Applying “legaltech” in law

“Are we doing things right? The digital transformation of legal operators: vulnerabilities and advantages” is the title of the conference given by Paloma Llaneza, lawyer, systems auditor, security consultant and expert in privacy, data protection, IT law and security, in addition to being CEO of Razona Legaltech, technical director of eiDAS-TI of CERTICAR and founder of The Llaneza Firm.

Paloma participates in the Digital Transformation Module of C1B3RWall Academy 2021, and shares with us her concerns regarding the application of technologies in law.

Lawyers are bound by an obligation of secrecy. Client data are extremely sensitive, and all documentation is available, so law firms have become an easy target (frequent ransomware attacks), where both clients and lawyers may fall victim to extortion.

Legaltech services, which refer to the application of technology to the legal environment with features such as discovery tools, make it possible to read all the information about a company and perform due diligence within two or three weeks. Their use is becoming increasingly common. This also includes the use of artificial intelligence to parameterize the behaviour of the courts.

The problem is that the environments are not secure and the pressure on lawyers to incorporate technology is not accompanied by sufficient instruction that would allow them to prevent potential risks. You can read the full article on News-365.

If you would like to learn about this topic or other issues related to the technological applications and tools and their risks in the legal profession, do not miss the opportunity to enrol in C1b3rWall Academy 2021 for free.
