ACHIEVING CYBERSECURITY MATURITY WITHIN YOUR LAW FIRM
Law firms understand that data privacy cannot exist without keeping data secure. We assist by Implementing and governing security measures necessary to protect the authenticity, confidentiality and integrity of information. Most law firm have wonderful policies but now security controls to go with the polices.
For law firms, staying on top of changing technology is the key to growing your business without sacrificing clients’ security and privacy. However, implementing new and adaptive IT security solutions on your own can be both expensive and confusing. Working with experienced IT consultants for law firms can help make the entire procedure much easier. Here are a few ways that law offices benefit from working with dedicated IT security consulting services.
Our experience spans the full range of industry sectors including legal services, financial institutions and banking, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and chemicals, construction and engineering, consumer goods and retail, automotive, hotels and leisure, IT, telecommunications, manufacturing and electronics, publishing and media.
Teamwork Makes the Dream Work
“Law firms has a duty to effectively protect their clients’ information. If a firm is negligent in carrying out that duty because it has been lax with its security, and that resulted in client files being disclosed, it is potentially a problem.” Even if a firm has a very good security system.
As entities, law firm systems contain highly-sensitive financial data, corporate strategies, trade secrets, business transaction information and plenty of both PII and PHI. Unfortunately, many firms lack a complete, effective, privacy and security program. According to our studies, 25% of law firms did not have an organized plan in place to prepare for or respond to a data breach. Only 50% of law firms included in the study have cyber security teams in place to handle and implement the types of complex programs and initiatives necessary to deal with a data breach.
Why are law firms behind on this issue? The problem is money. Each person quoted in this article mentioned cost as a major factor for why law firms are lagging in preparing for cyberattacks. To have an effective cyber risk program requires, at minimum, up-to-date software, which for any size law firm can be very expensive.
