“Our Law Firm is Too Small to be in Danger from Cyberattacks”- WRONG!!!

Think Again About the Risks of Small Law Firms
It is astonishing how often we hear small law firms tell us that they are too small to be at serious risk for cyberattacks. Anecdotally, we can certainly tell them of many successful attacks on small law firms, though our knowledge is derived from successful attacks where we’ve been called in to investigate and/or remediate the damage, so we cannot identify the law firms.
Nevertheless, there are plenty of publicly known small firm breaches. In fact, we have a file cabinet drawer full of articles, reports, etc. of law firm data breaches (small and large) going back 20 years. Why did we build this collection? Because we continually have to persuade law firms, especially the small ones, that they are at risk.
