Cybersecurity for Law Firms

What Is At Risk for Law Firms

Law firms have extremely sensitive and private information about their clients, which makes them a highly attractive target to cybersecurity threat groups. This information can include confidential documents and business operating agreements, as well as personally identifiable information such as name, address, phone number, social security number, and more. Attackers can steal this information and hold it for ransom, putting your firm in a bad position so it's important to get the right services in cybersecurity such as data breach prevention.


The Effects of a Cybersecurity Attack on a Law Firm

Law firms tend to be a highly targeted industry for cyber threats and therefore must take advantage of services in cybersecurity. Your IT company may set up your network and make it secure, but it’s up to you to double-check their work.

If you are attacked, it can have a devastating effect on your firm. The loss or theft of information not only impacts the firm, but your clients as well. Many states now have extremely stringent breach notification rules requiring you to notify individuals who have had their data compromised. Firms will have to deal with the cost of the breach and the PR nightmare that occurs as a result of the breach. You may even suffer the loss of clients, business continuity, and potential litigation.


What Black Talon Can Do

Many firms will rely on their IT company to set up their network and safeguard it from cyber attacks with services in cybersecurity. However, most of the time, this is not enough to block cyber threats. Black Talon takes over where the IT company leaves off.  We are specialists and have advanced certifications, the necessary tools, and the real-world experience of offering services in cybersecurity for decades. Many clients now require that their legal representation goes through a cybersecurity audit. We can do this, and so much more.

Black Talon Security can help firms implement advanced security measures to protect client data from cyber threats and ensure business continuity through data breach prevention. We do this by helping the firm implement the following technologies/services in cybersecurity:

One of the most beneficial things we can do is to provide cybersecurity awareness training to all attorneys and staff in your firm to better protect against cyber threats. We help to make them aware of what is happening in the industry and teach them how to prevent cybercriminals from accessing your data. Your staff is your first line of defense against these threat groups.
