Cyberattacks are ubiquitous in the legal sector. Law firms and lawyers are popular targets for cyber criminals looking to quickly and easily gain access to sensitive information that could be monetized for personal gain. Email is lawyers’ trusted and preferred method for communicating with their clients and sharing personal information. 

However, due to a lack of mandated security policies or regulatory guidelines in place to protect sensitive data against theft, misuse or alteration, law firms may not be as protected as necessary.

This lethal mistake can have devastating consequences for law firms and their clients. According to The Law Society, 52% of law firms reported to have been hit with an attack between June 2017 and May 2018. Phishing comprised 81% of reported attacks, followed by spoofing, viruses and malware. 

Downtime due to a cyberattack is time that a law firm cannot bill for, resulting in direct monetary losses as well as serious and potentially irreparable damage to a firm’s reputation. Effective email security is essential to preventing decreased profits and damaged reputation, establishing and maintaining trust with clients and achieving long-term success in the legal industry.
