Law Firms Have A Target On Their Backs When It Comes To Cyberattacks
Today’s Hot Take comes to us from the JDL Group,”5 Ways Law Firms Can Protect Their Sensitive Client Data.” The five points are:
Optimize Data Storage
Have A Response Plan
Hire An MSSP – Managed Security Services Provider
“You need to protect your firm’s reputation and your clients’ information – your business is built on data from clients, contracts, and cases.
If you think your law firm is too small to be targeted, think again. For law firms of every size, cybersecurity will be a continuing challenge. Hackers are now targeting small to medium-sized law firms instead of large organizations because smaller firms are often seen as the weaker link. Although small to medium-sized firms have fewer resources to put towards a cyber-security program, they have the same cyber-security challenges and threats as the larger firms.”
