When it comes to cybersecurity and the law, it is common to hear about legal firms representing companies who have had a breach or class action lawsuits. But legal organizations themselves need to implement best practices when it comes to securing their organization. The attorney-client relationship cannot exist without confidentiality and privacy, including safeguarding digital assets and information.
Law firms across the globe have been experiencing breaches that not only affect their company data, but their clients’. Attacks on firms can come from employees, vendors, and nation-state attackers.
One of the most known law firm breaches was the Panama Papers, which included 11.5 million documents from the Panama-based law firm Mossack Fonseca. While it is unknown who hacked the firm, experts later learned that the business had multiple vulnerabilities including unencrypted email and out-of-date software.
According to a 2019 report by Recorded Future, nation-state attackers have law firms in their sights. Many firms continue to be vulnerable to state-sponsored incursions from China, Russia and Iran. The report detailed an alleged Chinese hack into the systems of a U.S. firm known for its expertise in intellectual property.
These sophisticated attacks must be met with an equally sophisticated security infrastructure.
While federal regulation is murky on specific law firm legislation, firms handling health care data, payment processing information and other consumer data should prioritize protecting their network. Many still need to comply with HIPAA, HITECH, PCI-DSS, Sarbanes-Oxley, and GDPR regulations.
Lumifi helps companies cover compliance mandates such as these. Our security operations center is certified SSAE 18 SOC 2 Type II and prepared to help protect your clients’ data across industries.
More clients are hiring law firms that not only understand cybersecurity, but actively invest in their infrastructure. When handling sensitive data and proprietary client data, firms must be able to articulate how their network stores and handles information.
According to the 2016 ABA Legal Technology Survey Report, 30.7% of all law firms and 62.8% of firms with 500 lawyers or more reported that current or potential clients made specific security requirements a part of their client agreements. Other law firms reported that corporate clients wanted access to the cybersecurity plans and prevention procedures implemented by the firms.
