Every modern company, regardless of size or industry, is at risk of a potentially devastating cyberattack. However, law firms are particularly attractive to cybercriminals. Law firms deal with highly sensitive information, store large amounts of confidential client data, and are known to be a target for financial gain.
Unfortunately, law firms often offer easy entry points for cybercriminals. Many firms utilize outdated IT systems and are slow to adopt high-impact cybersecurity policies. For business leaders looking to strengthen their firm’s cybersecurity posture, it is advisable to explore IT services for law firms for the following reasons.
Most modern law firms primarily communicate via email. Unfortunately, the mounting cases of spear phishing attacks make daily email communication risky. Legal IT services offer cybersecurity awareness trainings that can educate employees to spot and dodge a phishing attack before it can impact the firm’s systems.
Law firms face the burden of storing and protecting large amounts of confidential client data. An IT services company can keep legal documents safe and secure. IT professionals can implement robust information and security policies to protect a law firm and its clients from IT security breaches that threaten the privacy of a law firm’s most confidential information.
When a law firm partners with an IT company, business leaders can rest easily knowing their firm is current with emerging technologies and security patches. In addition to helping law firms identify the appropriate technological solutions, IT professionals can procure recommended solutions and assets. They also can help identify, implement, and monitor necessary security patches to keep a law firm’s systems current.
According to a recent report by Check Point Research, there was a 50% increase year-over-year in overall cyberattacks per week on corporate networks in 2021. Many of these attacks aimed to deploy ransomware which can cripple a law firm. Working with IT professionals can reduce the risk of a ransomware attack by ensuring the implementation of secure network protection policies and procedures.
