The evidence is clear: law firms are an increasingly attractive target for attackers. Harvey Rishikof of the American Bar Association’s National Security Council summarized why*: “[Law firms] have information from clients on deal negotiations which adversaries have a keen interest in. They’re a treasure trove that is extremely attractive to criminals, foreign governments, adversaries and intelligence entities.”
For proof of this, look no further than 2016’s Panama Papers breach, where the 4th largest offshore law firm worldwide had a data breach resulting in a very public and damaging exposure of their clients’ information.
