There's Always a Bigger Phish: Legal Industry Security Strategies
Legal documents live transitory lives. They contain reams of sensitive information that pass through the hands of lawyers and paralegals, and then they go through the process of being reviewed and signed by clients, clerks, opposing counsels, and judges. When they finally get to the location where records are stored, they are often inadvertently exposed to others - even firm outsiders - who shouldn't have access to them at all.
As a result, the exposure of confidential material is something that happens all too often and puts the firm in danger of falling short of one of its cardinal commitments: guarding and securing client information. But with the right email security strategies in place, you can protect this data across workstations, mobile devices, and partner inboxes, keeping your clients safe, and employees secure.
