Adriana Linares, a noted technology consultant, summed up the relationship between legal firms and cyber security in one sentence: “Eighty percent of law firms have been hacked, and the other 20 percent are either lying or don’t know about it.”
According to the American Bar Association, the biggest weakness within a law firm is its employees. Since hackers still most frequently use phishing emails to enter a system, all they need is for an unsuspecting employee to open an email or click a link to grant them access to a law firm’s data.
The valuable client information maintained by these firms is exactly what hackers are trying to steal. In fact, foreign based hackers have targeted transactionally oriented firms in an effort to obtain confidential, market-moving information and trade on it. These breaches can cost legal teams thousands to millions of dollars in repercussions, including the expense of recovering data, cost of downtime and lost billable hours, not to mention the damage the incident does to the image of the law firm. In the event of a breach, if the cause is an error by a lawyer, the lawyer could lose his or her license. With so much to lose, it’s important to get ahead of the threat before it happens to your company.
At MDL, we offer protection for your valuable data in the event of a breach. You can store your data in an off-site server that allows you to protect it from breaches and maintain a backup that can be easily accessed if your company loses its data in order to minimize downtime and money lost.
