    Lawyers cause much more damage to the society than the grief they are experiencing. 500 lawyers at the bottom of the ocean is a good start.

    “There have been a number of reports along with a great deal of anecdotal information of law firms either being hacked and not yet aware of it or otherwise reluctant to make that information public,” said Garczynski. “What’s clear is that given how rapidly technology is evolving, it’s virtually impossible to be completely insulated from cyber and data security risks.”

    This is really accurate. Because of the reluctance to disclose any breaches, and the lack of media coverage of such events, it is difficult on a macro level to see what any increases in breaches look like or how they are trending.

    Law firms are different and will require unique vigilance and solutions to data security issues.

      Factor, I am much more concerned with the insurance carriers and vendors of information technology getting hacked than I am lawyers computers being hacked.

    Agent,

    Any of the entities you mentioned getting hacked is worrisome. For lawyers the problem is compounded by the fact that they have VERY sensitive client data on their networks.
