Sensei’s John Simek was quoted in LegalTech News in an article entitle, “Ransomware Hit Case Management Provider TrialWorks. What Happens Next?” by Victoria Hudgins.
Excerpt: Add case management platform TrialWorks to the laundry list of companies and public sector agencies that were struck and paralyzed by a cyberattack this year. And unless lawyers backed up their client files to a separate storage network, they could be frozen out of their data by TrialWorks’ problems. Still, experts say there are ways to mitigate the damage.
Quotes and advice from John Simek:
“They are screwed,” said John Simek, vice president of IT service provider, digital forensics and cybersecurity firm Sensei Enterprises Inc. “At the end of the day, they are dependent on TrialWorks.”
To mitigate that dependency, Simek advised lawyers to keep copies of their client files stored on local or external hard drives or on a network cloud storage.
