Did you know that 29% of law firms experienced a security breach in 2020? 🎯 🔐
And that is up from 26% in 2019. 🆙
*source: ABA 2020 Legal Technology Survey Report
I have always thought it likely that this stat is low – in many firms, especially large firms, attorneys may never learn of a breach unless it becomes public.
This is borne out by 21% of respondents reporting that they do not know whether their firm has ever experienced a security breach. (hence the numbers are likely higher)
So what does that mean for you? 🧐
Well… if you’re still reading this, it means that you gotta get GOOD at securing your practice… and fast.
If you don’t know how to secure your data and reduce your risk of a data breach…nothing else matters.
Because if you experience a data breach and have to notify the Office of Disciplinary Counsel, State Bar, Attorney General, etc. of the incident AND every single person in your contact list.
People like your prospective, current and past clients, colleagues, judges, opposing counsel … etc.
Nothing else matters.
The reputational damage of a data breach is monumental.
Your current and future clients are not going to trust you with their sensitive information and therefore you won’t be able to help them.
And once you’ve been the victim of a data breach … then what?
It is too late.
