Linked – Large law firms’ secret information from big-money clients entice cyberthieves

posted in: LawFirms, Links | 0

This isn’t new. It’s the reason things like the Panama Papers exist, because law firms have a whole lot of data about their clients, information that those clients usually do a really good job of protecting –

“It’s an issue about the data, fundamentally,” says Jake Olcott, a vice president at BitSight Technologies, a cybersecurity rating company. “More organizations that have this sensitive data internally are doing better to protect themselves, and so the bad guys who are interested in this data are having to turn to what they perceive are the weakest links in the supply chain. That’s why law firms are such targets.”
