Legal firms need cybersecurity expertise to proactively detect, disrupt and remediate cyber threats before they become business disrupting events.

The complicated web of relationships between major industries, governments and individuals in power positions, paired with sensitive information and multiple points of entry, means inadequate security measures will have costly consequences.

Cybercriminals are targeting legal firms to:

  • Profit from stolen information
  • Use law firms to reach their client data
  • Publicly disrupt operations for the purpose of extortion
  • Retaliate for representation of clients

Legal Industry Threat Intelligence Report

Protecting Your Law Firm’s Data, Clients, and Reputation

Law firms have access to confidential client information, making them a prime target for threat actors looking to extort payments, steal and sell sensitive data, or retaliate for client representation. In recent years, the legal industry rapidly adopted digital technologies. These vast amounts of digitized client data are centrally stored in document control systems, making it easier for threat actors to conduct highly targeted attacks or opportunistic campaigns.

Our researchers discovered that cyberattacks targeting law firms progress to the intrusion phase more quickly, suggesting that threat actors prioritize establishing footholds in the legal sector compared to other industries. To prevent operational disruption and maintain your reputation, your firm needs to develop a foundation of cyber resilience that includes prioritizing employee security awareness, hardening cybersecurity defenses, and managing trusted relationships with third-party and supply chain partners.

Legal Threat Summit

Securing Your Law Firm With Limited Resources

For decades, law firms have been subject to sophisticated cyberattacks that lead to massive ransomware outages, public exposure, crippling reputational damage, and massive financial loss. In fact, the resulting damage and business disruption can cost upward of $225K per day. Unfortunately, many law firms lack the necessary in-house resources and expertise to detect and contain cyber threats.

In this Legal Industry Threat Summit, we share expert insights on the latest cyber threats targeting the legal industry, main legal cybersecurity challenges, and how security leaders can defend their organizations with limited resources. The threat summit features:

  • A Legal Industry Threat Summit
    Presented by Joe Stewart, Principal Security Researcher, and Keegan Keplinger, Sr. Threat Intelligence Researcher, from eSentire’s Threat Response Unit (TRU)
  • A Fireside Chat with Andrea Markstrom, Chief Information Officer, Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP, and Christopher Meinders, Senior Manager, Information Security, Baker Botts
    Hosted by Erin McLean, Chief Marketing Officer, eSentire

The nice thing with eSentire is, they’re always looking at my network. They’re looking at my environment. They’re looking at everything that’s coming through. I can sleep at night. I don’t have to have 24/7 SOC. I know that my network is being looked at and they’re taking care of it. And if they see something that they deem to be a threat, they can prevent it, and block it, and stop it, and get a hold of my team, if needed."
