5 Top Cybersecurity Mistakes Law Firms Make

Small to midsize law firms have been increasingly targeted for cyberattacks. Hackers know that smaller companies are less likely than their larger counterparts to have sophisticated security protocols in place, and that law firm data is particularly valuable. The confidential nature of attorney-client relationships gives lawyers added motivation to pay a ransom to recover their sensitive data, which is not lost on bad actors. In fact, 24.9% of all ransomware attacks in 1Q 2021 targeted professional services firms, especially small and midsize law firms, according to Coveware.

How to Improve Communication at Your Law Firm When People are Working Outside the Office

The pandemic caused a paradigm shift toward remote and hybrid work environments, and law firms are no exception. In a 2021 survey by Bloomberg Law, 40% of attorneys reported their firms allowed complete flexibility regarding their work environment. Only a quarter of respondents said they were expected to be in the office at least 3 days a week, and only 1 in 10 said their in-office presence was expected full-time. If lawyer preferences are any indication, these trends are likely to continue. Only 11% of lawyers surveyed said they would prefer to be in the office full-time, and only a quarter said they wanted to be in the office 3 or 4 days a week.

Cybersecurity Tips: If You Get Caught Phishing, Prepare to Catch a Whopper!

Phishing remains one of the most common types of data breaches and often leads to a ransomware attack. When ransomware hits your IT, all or substantial parts of your IT will stop functioning and your data becomes compromised. The only way to bring your systems back online is to restore from backup or to “pay the piper,” the cybercriminal, their ransom. While ransoms of the past were in the thousands, they are now typically hundreds of thousands or even millions! In a worst-case scenario, there will be operating losses due to interruption of services when restoring and rebuilding your systems. The other main results of phishing are the stealing of personal or confidential business information, as well as the hijacking of a person’s mailbox, to deliver false instructions to illicit a payment to the cybercriminal.
