PERFECT SECURITY STORM FOR LAW FIRMS?
Share
clear

Marc Russinovich’s recent book Zero Day:  A Novel tells an action-packed tale of international hackers;   the action passes through a NYC law firm and brings the entire firm down.  Great story, but it seemed a little farfetched when I read it.  In the book, the entire fictional law firm grinds to a halt as a result of a malware attack.  Now we read about the major attacks on law firm Puckett & Faraj (ABA Journal, February 6, 2012).  Web site down and emails on YouTube is not what any firm wants.  Firm shut down; although their site is now back up.  Mr. Russinovich’s book does not seem so farfetched at this point.  CFO Magazine just did a story on cyber thieves targeting small and midsized businesses, “Where the Money Is, and the Security Isn’t”.  All this is a good reminder for small and midsized law firms, at least those involved with litigation, to take steps to secure their data and business processes.
