IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Identillect Technologies Corp. (the "Company" or "Identillect") (TSX-V: ID, IDTLF, Frankfurt: 8ID), announces today the New Jersey State Bar Association (the “New Jersey State Bar”) has partnered with Identillect to educate and create awareness at all levels of technical understanding. This educational series will train attorneys on how to prevent cyber-attacks. The first two dates of the educational series are on October 25th, 2018, as an introductory course on understanding the basics of cyber-security and protection. Next on December 11th, 2018, the series will educate on advanced understanding of overcoming cyber-crime and using preventative measures. Identillect has seen growth over the past several years with many law firms and bar associations as the legal community has become more aware of the need for cyber-security across the United States.
New Jersey State Bar is one of the largest voluntary Bar Associations in the United States, proudly serving over 18,000 members. As the voice of New Jersey attorneys, they support their extensive member base by fostering professionalism, advancing personal development and encouraging participation. Recognizing the need to inform and protect New Jersey attorneys against a constantly evolving stream of cybersecurity issues, the New Jersey State Bar has created a Cybersecurity Task Force.
Dr. Robert Spangler, Associate Executive Director, Operations and Information Technology at the New Jersey Bar Association comments, “At the New Jersey Bar we are proud to continually bring innovative programs to our bar members, secure email communication has an increasingly important role when attorney’s engage in digital communication.” Lisa W. Spiegel., Esq. Senior Managing Director of CLE programs at the New Jersey Bar states, “As the New Jersey Bar Association provides one of the most comprehensive CLE (Continuing Learning Education) programs available to its members, cyber-security is a prominent area of concern and we will frequently educate our members on this subject matter.”
According to LogicForce’s Law Firm Cyber Security Scorecard, 40% of surveyed law firms were not aware they were breached in 2016 (cyber-attacks-espionage/hackers-are-aggressively-targeting-law-firms). This highlights a true need for not only tools to combat cyber threats, but also increased awareness and education surrounding digital communication channels.
Identillect CEO Todd Sexton states, “The legal community has become a target for cyber criminals in recent years. The best way to combat being a target is to educate and deploy security protocols which will minimize the number of attorneys experiencing data breaches. Identillect is proud to be part of the New Jersey State Bar’s efforts to expand the knowledge of their members to prevent cybercrime. Identillect continues to maintain its commitment to the legal community and various State Bar Associations, providing education and the simplest security tools available.”
