Ransomware costs, the cost of remediation and repair, the damage made to reputations and relationships, the risks of personal data theft – any malicious attack on a legal firm is all encompassing and far-reaching.
While some attacks are vindictive, the issue within the legal sector is that many employees/insiders are completely unaware that they are a threat in the first place. And, with over 30% of people now working remotely, connections to unsecure networks are increasing.
Ransomware attacks on legal organisations across the globe have risen. High ransom demands, time spent on remediating threats, safeguarding data and time lost on navigating the threat landscape puts organisations at a tremendous financial loss.
Everyone is susceptible to a phishing attack. But phishing emails within the legal sector are well-crafted and it takes a trained eye to spot the genuine from the fake. From phishing attacks comes ransomware, which can destroy a whole business in minutes.
Effective security always comes down to three key elements. Processes, people and technology.
Processes must run seamlessly alongside the organisation. Security experts must have the capability to detect, react and understand the context of a risk. And the technology must be superior, to keep up with cyber threats. All elements are equally as important, and you must have all three to ensure security.
Attacks against the industry are aggressive and sophisticated. 100% of Law Firms have been a target of some form of cyber-attack.
