“One interesting quote from Edelson in the article: “Firms are incapable of getting the 60-year-old rainmaking partner to not use public Wi-Fi to access client data on a computer that is not secure . . . they are just totally dropping the ball there.” I can’t verify whether that is accurate, but it shouldn’t be happening at large law firms. Hopefully, technology and training together can prevent that problem . . . but maybe I’m wrong . . .”
I’d like to think that sort of thing isn’t happening, but I worked in firms long enough to know that it probably is. Law firms targeted by this class action may find themselves in a bad way legally, and in terms of bad publicity.
