Cybersecurity Services for Law Offices
Law firms have unique cybersecurity challenges. Law offices are often targeted by malicious actors because their networks can contain a treasure trove of privileged client information. Many law offices lack fully competent cybersecurity programs to mitigate risk. Law offices can contain terabytes worth of confidential information including trade secrets, intellectual property, and client personal information. While it is reasonable to assume that a global business can afford a comprehensive cybersecurity plan, many law firms struggle to build an effective cybersecurity posture.
This is why malicious actors have often turned their attention to target legal firms in recent years. The American Bar Association (ABA) requires law firms to make “reasonable efforts to prevent the inadvertent or unauthorized disclosure of, or unauthorized access to, information relating to the representation of a client.” Lawyers must take immediate action to secure their client data, respond when a breach is suspected or found, and notify any clients who may have been harmed by the breach, according to ABA regulations.
Law firms are exposed to enormous risk if successfully breached. A breach can result in an enormous loss of reputation for a law office, as well as costly compliance issues and millions of dollars in remediation costs. As more and more of our everyday lives and essential business functions are performed online, the threat landscape for law firms, and companies in general, has grown exponentially. Cyber attacks, ransomware attacks, and data breaches concerning law firms are not new, but the pace of occurrence and year-over-year rise is astounding. According to the American Bar Association, up to 42% of law firms with less than 100 workers have had a data breach.
