Law firms defend their clients' legal rights.
Who defends law firms against cybercrime?
Law firms make particularly appealing targets for cyberattacks because of the sensitive personal and commercial client data that they store as well as the information on partners, employees, and cases they handle. Cybercriminals also target law firms to gain access to technical and trade secrets and private business strategies. Add to this the fact that law firms are often inattentive to cybersecurity and the odds weigh heavily in favor of a crippling cyber breach.
