Rob Kleeger returns to present at the 2017 ALA Regional Conferences

Rob Kleeger, Founder and Managing Director of Digital4nx Group, Ltd. was selected to return and speak at the 2017 Regional Conference and Expo. This conference will be held at the Renaissance Nashville in Nashville, Tennessee on October 12-14, 2017.

The title of the lecture is : "Ransomware and Social Engineering: What's the Big Deal and What to Do?

Ransomware hackers are increasingly using phishing and other social engineering attacks to sneak into consumer and business computers, encrypt files containing documents and other important data, and demand a ransom to get back the files. They sometimes pose as the FBI or other law enforcement officials and claim that the ransom is a fine for viewing illegal material and that failure to pay the fine will result in criminal prosecution. Consumers, businesses and government agencies are falling prey to these schemes. Please join us for our course for legal management professionals and lawyers on ransomware and social engineering, and how you can help your clients (and yourselves) understand and deal with the financial and business risks these threats represent.

Learning Objectives will include:

  • Explain what ransomware and social engineering are, how they happen, and the dangers they pose.  
  • Discuss legal and law enforcement response and remedies.
  • Describe how to protect your clients and yourself. 
  • Discuss what happens if you do or don't pay the ransom.
  • Analyze the benefit of using an enterprise risk management approach.

The Association of Legal Administrators is the undisputed leader in the business of law and law practice management.

    Rob Kleeger returns to speak to The Joseph Halpern-David Furman American Inns of Court.  

    Rob Kleeger has been asked to return in May to speak to The Joseph Halpern-David Furman American Inns of Court. The presentation is entitled: “10 Things Attorneys Should Know About Digital Forensics, eDiscovery, the Cloud, and Cyber Security"

    Brief Overview:

    It is a fact of modern life that an enormous volume of information is created, exchanged, and stored electronically in our business and personal lives.  More commonly, a majority of legal cases involve a digital aspect that, if properly uncovered and examined, digital evidence an help build stronger cases and occasionally to force settlements.  Recovering a particular email, a deleted memo, or the date and time a web page was printed can be critical to a legal matter.  More often than not, discovering when, how, and who created the digital information can be equally important and perhaps the smoking gun.  In other instances finding hidden or deleted financial information on a computer is the key to a strong case.  
     
    Alternatively, very law firm is vulnerable to cyber security breaches, just like virtually any other business today. However, law firms are particularly attractive targets for hackers. At the same time, law firms are subject to not only the laws that apply to any other businesses, but to legal ethics rules as well.
     
    Agenda:

    • What is Digital Forensics?
    • Understanding the Forensic Imaging process
    • Types of ESI (Electronically Stored Information)
    • What really happens to "deleted" files
    • Cyber Threats Landscape
    • Security Risks and Threats Associated with Cloud Computing
    • Hypothetical Case Study’
    • Best Practices and Tips to implement Immediately

    The American Inns of Court is an association of lawyers, judges, and other legal professionals from all levels and backgrounds who share a passion for professional excellence. Through regular meetings, members are able to build and strengthen professional relationships; discuss fundamental concerns about professionalism and pressing legal issues of the day; share experiences and advice; exhort the utmost passion and dedication for the law; provide mentoring opportunities; and advance the highest levels of integrity, ethics, and civility.

    Rob Kleeger from Digital4nx Group presents at 2017 the ALA Annual Conference & Expo

    Hacking: The Threat from Within

    Law firm management and risk managers have been focusing on the threats of outside hackers, malicious source code attacks and the everyday digital threats that could disrupt business. But there is one weak link that the also need to focus on — people.

    Whether disgruntled or dishonest, whether destroying records or stealing intellectual property, it is shockingly easy for insiders to wreak havoc on your most valuable digital assets. Unprotected data can leave your office on a thumb drive, a laptop or through a personal email account. Once outside, there are plenty of lively markets for it. From competitors looking for trade secrets, to criminals stealing customer data, to rogue states breaching national security and much more, there is no shortage of buyers for any information that can be monetized. Before you can begin to build your defense, you need to know what you must protect.

    Objectives:
    • Identify the risks within the law firm environment.
    • Discuss practical tips on how to better secure and monitor sensitive data.
    • Examine surveys and facts to support the trends.
    • Analyze interactive hypotheticals.

    Audience: This session assumes that participants have a working knowledge of cyber security and risk management in the legal industry.

    What you don't know about the DFS-Department of Financial Services regulations CAN HURT YOU!

    Cyber and information security is a growing concern for both lawyers and clients. Recently, the New York Department of Financial Services has proposed comprehensive “first in the nation” cybersecurity regulations that is proposed to take effect January 1, 2017. 

    These regulations will apply not only to all businesses regulated by the NYDFS, but also their outside counsel and other vendors...even if you are located in New Jersey.  

    This 3 hour CLE will be broken into two sessions. We will begin with a discussion and analysis of the legal and practical implications of the new NYDFS regulations and their potential impact on outside counsel, including how the regulations intersect and differ from the confidentiality requirements of the Rules of Professional Conduct regardless of if you practice in NJ,NY, PA, or elsewhere.

    In the second half of the presentation, using the NYDFS regulations as a framework, the panel will walk through a mock-scenario of a ransomware attack on a law firm’s information systems. This discussion will cover the technical, liability, and insurance coverage issues that may arise as a result of this and similar cybersecurity events. 

    We also will integrate the RPC and how the rules being changed regards to attorneys ethical obligation to understand technology, confidentiality, and cyber awareness.

    Come join us to learn how the NY DFS rules don't hurt you!

    “These [cyber] breaches are happening for a variety of reasons ...
    The biggest threats that we see are the spear phishing, socially engineered attacks, and it’s getting a lot more sophisticated...
    It’s not your firewall, it’s not your anti-virus... It’s your people and your process [lack of one]...
    You need to understand what those crown jewels are. ...
    What is it that your business has that if it fell into the wrong person’s hands could do damage? And oftentimes the damage is reputational, which is a lot more devastating than a financial loss. ...
    Depending upon whether there’s a merger event, corporate espionage is clearly going on. Some of it is state-sponsored but a lot of it is happening here in the U.S.”

      Rob Kleeger co-authored Security Breach Planning and Response Article for NJCPA Magazine

      Security Breach Planning and Response

      The below is an excerpt from the article by Robert Risk, Seth Danberry, Rob Kleeger and Ryan Cooper appeared in the May/June 2016 issue of New Jersey CPA magazine. Read the full article. 

      Thieves are everywhere these days. You read about data security breaches every day from Target, Home Depot, Anthem, Sony, to American Express. These are the big companies but did you know that 94% of all breaches occur in companies with fewer than 100 employees. So what are small and midsize companies to do? The answer to this question is assume you will be breached and plan for it. The worst thing you can do is not be proactive because from a reactive position you risk permanently damaging your company brand and setting your company up for lawsuits and compliance issues.

      Security Breach Response

      Although many business executives agree that data is among their most valuable assets, it often takes a breach—or, at least, an attempted breach—to convince executives to beef up data protection. As we’ve seen over the past few years, no one is safe from data security attempts.

      Unfortunately, most organizations are not aware a breach has occurred until it’s too late.  In a recent case, a small third party medical billing company who has additional staff outside the United States had migrated from a Microsoft 2003 Exchange environment to a newer Microsoft Exchange server environment.  Within two weeks of that migration, a camera crew and well known investigative news reporter shows up at the company asking the CEO to provide a statement on how nearly one hundred thousand patient records have been publically available (i.e. PHI breach).

      The incident response team was dispatched onsite that afternoon. They began the forensic preservation of the old server and the new servers, capturing various system log files, interviewed the clients manages IT services firm, the CEO, and began conducting an analysis within a few days.  

      In the end, it was discovered that the cause of the data breach was from the migration which had caused the FTP setting to default to an anonymous login, therefore it was publically facing and cached by Google’s bot.  The IT firm had simply forgotten to “check the box” to close the publicly facing FTP port.

      Getting hacked is never a good thing, especially when the result is stolen or compromised customer data, PII, or PHI. But how a company reacts to the attack can make all the difference in the long run.  A prompt and effective reaction can minimize the damage or at least paint the organization in a fairly positive light with customers, business partners and the public at large.

      The initial step is to keep calm, prioritize what is happening and what needs to be contained. Preserving evidence and identifying what has occurred is important, but the investigation can't begin until the scene is secured.  Depending upon the incident (i.e. passive network intruder, malicious attack, rogue employee, etc.), the primary objective is to provide intelligence about the technical skill-set and the motivation of the attacker, along with immediate steps to remediate and protect critical assets. This includes initial damage assessment, initial vector of compromise, indicators of compromise, preservation of forensic artifacts, and further forensic analysis of information collected.

      Often, a critical step is to identify the incident by reviewing errors, log files and other artifacts from firewalls, intrusion-detection systems, and other digital assets.  Once the response team has identified the incidents, they will work on stabilizing or containment of the network to “Stop the bleeding”.

      Forensic preservation is a very critical step, due to the potential legal notification and state data breach requirements, reputational risks, and possible litigation.  The earliest stage of any investigation is the most important one to get right.  In emergency medicine, there is a "golden hour" at the very outset, during which there is the highest likelihood that prompt expert response with a clear head and well thought out plan can make or break the best defensible position to support investigation or litigation needs.

      Guest Lecturer for Seton Hall Law School

      Rob Kleeger will be providing a lecture on Digital Forensic Investigations and eDiscovery to Seton Hall Law School.  In addition, a simulated Rule 16 Meet and Confer session.

      The first portion of the class will be Rob Kleeger playing the role of an IT director for a Defendant in a contract breach claim.  His role then will shift to be the role of a highly compensated CIO who plays the corporate politics game extremely well, yet doesn’t really know much about technology other than throwing around buzzwords and techie acronyms.  

      The students use probing questions to determine what the respective Plaintiff and Defendant’s IT Data Map looks like in order to properly identify, preserve, and prepare for a meet and confer conference in the upcoming weeks.
