Many attorneys feel overwhelmed by cybersecurity issues, stick their heads in the sand, and do nothing to protect their firm’s information. Part 1 of this article covered the reasons why law firms need to be concerned about cybersecurity, and why they need to actively protect their firm’s information. Now, part 2 will cover key elements of how law firms can address those concerns, and thereby: (1) decrease the odds of a cybersecurity incident or breach, and (2) increase their ability to detect, respond, and recover from one when (not if) it happens.
Every law firm will eventually have some kind of cybersecurity incident or breach (if they haven’t already). What sets those firms apart is: (1) how well they minimize the odds of an incident occurring, and (2) how well they’re able to detect, respond, and recover from one.
