Law Firm Exposure to Cyber Breach Threats
Post on June 9th, 2014

What All Attorneys Should Consider in an Ever-Changing World By Steve Couch

With hackers executing sophisticated data breaches on companies both big and small, the need to protect your firm from the dangers of cybercrime is at an all-time high. Is your practice protected?

The words “cyber,” “cyber breach,” “data breach” or “cyber terrorism” should resonate with the typical Ohio legal practitioner. The recent and highly publicized data breaches affecting Target (40 million records), Adobe (2.9 million records), or Schnucks grocery store (2.4 million records) should cause attorneys to consider the security of their firms’ records and data. If you haven’t considered the risk these threats pose and taken the steps necessary to reduce that risk, your oversight may prove costly.
