Legal

Success in the legal field is based on the level of trust between lawyers and your clients. Many clients turn to their lawyers because of the promise of client confidentiality. When that confidence is breached, the lawyer’s most valuable asset can be damaged.

Studies show that this industry’s cyber security risk is higher as hackers know that law firms store very sensitive and confidential data of their clients. Moreover, for law firms that have large corporate clients, the firm must sign contracts that require a prominent level of care over the data entrusted such as Business Associate Agreements (BAAs) in healthcare, GLBA compliance requirements, etc. Because of this and the overall increase in cyber security hacking activities, we have seen that large law firms are taking proactive steps to assess and improve their Information Security protection posture.
