Colleague and friend Jim Calloway recently mentioned an article written by Sensei’s Sharon Nelson, John Simek and Michael Maschke, in The Oklahoma Bar Journal. The article “Holidays and Weekends: Prime Time for Cyberattacks” was featured in his Management Assistance Program Law Practice Tips. The Oklahoma Bar Journal is a publication of the Oklahoma Bar Association.
Did Your Law Firm Survive Thanksgiving?
We’re happy to say that our company survived – but we were attacked over 400 times between shutting the office down on Wednesday evening and Thursday morning. All of the attacks originated from Microsoft IP addresses (are you addressing this Microsoft?).
Did we get a good night’s sleep that Wednesday? Sure. Good preparation for attacks means that, if the attack is unsuccessful, you don’t get alerts. We learned of all the attacks first thing Thanksgiving morning, with a full report to review over our morning coffee.
