International law firm Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer (UK) LLP joins Secure Chorus
SECURE CHORUS, 7TH FEBRUARY 2019
Secure Chorus, a not-for-profit organisation in the field of information security, has announced the addition of its latest member. The international law firm Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer (UK) LLP has joined alongside another major international law firm, CMS Cameron McKenna Nabarro Olswang LLP, which joined at the end of 2018. Key members in other sectors include the National Cyber Security Centre, global telecommunication operators, system integrators, defence prime contractors, technology companies and academic institutions.
As with many other industries, the UK legal sector is under significant cyber threat. Law firms present an attractive target for cyber attack due to the sensitive client information held, the funds they manage and the fact that they are increasingly reliant on IT and technology. Cyber attack can have devastating effects financially and reputationally, not only for the firm but its clients also.
Secure Chorus supports innovation in cybersecurity and serves as a systemic catalyst, bringing together key players to articulate the benefits of collaboration, facilitate strategy, and develop common standards and tangible capabilities.
Elisabetta Zaccaria, Chairman of Secure Chorus said:
“We are pleased to welcome Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer as a member at a time when it is ever more imperative for law firms to protect data across their systems. Secure Chorus brings together key government and industry experts in the field of information security and we are keen to share our knowledge with the legal sector.”
Since the founding of Secure Chorus, its objective has been to act as a platform for multi-stakeholder interaction to bring together different organisations and intellectual disciplines to achieve a better understanding of the legal, political, economic and social implications of information security.
