Tikit’ NA President, Peter Zver discusses data security with a panel of experts for Law Practice Today.
The revelation that some of the country’s most prestigious law firms were hacked in an attempt to uncover confidential information, coupled with the “Panama Papers” scandal, has put an uncomfortable spotlight on law firms and their data security programs.
This may be the much needed wake-up call to law firms—big and small—to conduct an audit of their information security systems and protocols, and be more proactive in their efforts to prevent data breaches that could potentially have significant ramifications, both for their clients and their livelihood. In this month’s roundtable, law firm leaders and cybersecurity experts discuss why law firms are vulnerable to hackers, and what needs to be done to prevent a consequential data breach.
