Webinar: What Makes Law Firms Susceptible to Hackers?

Webinar: What Makes Law Firms Susceptible to Hackers?

Hackers have law firms in their crosshairs. It’s no wonder why. Law firms are increasingly viewed as “one-stop shops” for valuable corporate information. After all, why hack a dozen different companies when you can simply infiltrate their law firm, gaining access to some of their most sensitive information?

As dozens of examples show, when hackers target law firms, they’re too often successful. Recent, headline-making law firm cyberattacks include:

  • The devastating Panama Papers leaks, which exposed the way global elites shelter their wealth and led to the shuttering of the hacked firm, Mossack Fonseca, at the center of the scandal;
  • The infiltration of Cravath and Weil Gotshal, which saw valuable M&A information siphoned off by foreign hackers with ties to the Chinese government;
  • The massive ransomware attacks on DLA Piper, which forced the firm to halt almost all operations for days, at the cost of millions of dollars.

And those are just a few of the highest profile examples. Smaller firms, too, are often targeted by hackers, with equally distressing results.

What is it that makes these firms susceptible to such attacks and what can be done to prevent them in the future?

Join us for an upcoming webinar as we explore just that question. On July 18th, our panel of experts will explain the “anatomy of a hack,” using examples from real-world law firm cyberattacks, and demonstrate what you can do to protect yourself and your clients.
