Cybersecurity Measures You MUST Take Now: Practical and Actionable Guidance
Are you and your practice properly and sufficiently protected from the growing epidemic of cyberthreats? Probably not! One in three lawyers has suffered a data breach at the hands of cybercriminals, according to the ABA’s annual TechReport. Other professional services fare no better. Although every business owner knows this is a serious threat, they continually fail to meet their practical obligations to protect their client and business data adequately. These measures are even more important for lawyers and professionals subject to ethical obligations.
