During this webinar, FORVIS will walk you through the current threat landscape, where the threat landscape is headed, data privacy and compliance concerns, along with examples of AI-generated malware and ChatGPT-generated scams. FORVIS will also discuss how AI is currently being used to defend against these new threats and how this impacts law firms' overall security posture.
