As pressure to strengthen defenses against security breaches increases, organizations are in a race against the clock to shore up their resistances. Given the likelihood of an impending hack on the treasure trove of sensitive data they handle, this risk is further exaggerated for law firms.
On a scale of one to 10, the risks law firms are facing are an 11, according to Daniel Solove, professor at George Washington Law School and organizer of the Privacy + Security Forum. Underscoring this urgency is data from Mandiant, a division of FireEye, which finds that 80 of the 100 biggest law firms in the U.S. have been hacked since 2011 (see infographic on next page.)
