Cybersecurity Strategies and Tactics for Pennsylvania Law Firms
Many cyber attacks are becoming easier to launch for bad actors. At the same time, larger organizations are becoming increasingly difficult to infiltrate, forcing hackers to target smaller organizations that often have less sophisticated defenses. In recent years, these two trends have combined to make organizations aware of high-value data, regardless of their size. Hospitals, retailers, municipalities, government agencies and even credit bureaus have once again faced major data breaches. Now, law firms, with their highly confidential records, are being attacked regularly.
Since 2020, organizations in the legal profession, from law firms with less than half a dozen lawyers to law firms with more than 500, from city law firms to state courts, have denounced cyberattacks that compromise your confidential information. At the same time, reports continue to show that law firms continue to take time to protect themselves from cyberattacks compared to companies in other industries. State and federal regulations, as well as basic attorney ethics standards, require law firms to adopt technology more quickly to prevent cyberattacks.
