Webinar “The Basics of Cyber-Security in Courts”


July 22, 2021, 16:00

The National School of Judges, with assistance from the USAID New Justice Program and in cooperation with the National Judicial College, Reno, USA, offers a series of open webinars on various topics for judges, judicial clerks, and court staff.

The last webinar in this series – “The Basics of Cyber-Security in Courts.”

Current global trends in the application of technology, as well as the COVID-19 pandemic, have caused the courts to progressively move into increasing the use of digital case management tools, video conferencing, and e-messaging. Much of the work that used to be done in courts’ offices have moved to distant workplaces, and personal hardware and software are increasingly being used for work-related purposes. This webcast will focus on the most common cyber threats a court worker currently faces, the basic aspects of cyber-security and cyber hygiene, as well as recommendations on how to set up and maintain a reasonably protected home office space.

After this 120-minute webcast, participants will be able to:

  • Become aware of common current global trends and practices in the area of personal cyber-security;
  • Learn about the most common types of cyber threats and means to mitigate associated risks;
  • Learn about the cases of cyber-attacks against justice sector institutions;
  • Be able to take action to increase the security of their home office space.

Working language: English. Simultaneous translation into Ukrainian will be provided.

The webinar will be conducted on the Zoom platform. You can join the meeting at this link.
