Security Operations for Law Firms
In the wake of well-publicized cyberattacks in the legal industry, it's never been more important to elevate your firm’s cybersecurity posture.
The safekeeping of client information is crucial for law firms, especially those who have access to key corporate data. Firms have both ethical and legal obligations to protect privileged client data—or face potential fallout from the untold cost of recovering from a data breach.
The Security Challenge for Law Firms
Firms must abide by corporate clients’ regulatory obligations, which can include FINRA, HIPAA, PCI DSS, and more. Complexity and compliance have become major issues within the industry.
Full-time security professionals might be financially out of reach or hard to find. A shortage of security expertise continues to create a hyper-competitive recruitment and retention environment.
