Law firms are common targets of cyberattacks due to the sensitive information they obtain and store and their slow adoption of cybersecurity policies. In a CARET Legal-sponsored ALA webcast on February 17th, Thomas (TJ) Schoessow, VP of Technology Infrastructure at AbacusNext, and Alan Rappley, Senior Cyber Security Engineer at AbacusNext, discussed the basics of a SOC 2 audit and why firms are seeking vendors with SOC 2 attestation to keep their data secure.

The webcast explored what it means to be SOC 2 compliant and highlighted a cybersecurity checklist for firms to reference when vetting technology vendors they may want to work with.

Some of the topics discussed include:

  • What is SOC 2?
  • The basics of a SOC 2 audit
  • SOC 2 Type 1 versus Type 2
  • The five trust service categories
