Lawyers Plan to Increase Cybersecurity Spending

Lawyers Plan to Increase Cybersecurity Spending

Imagine all the sensitive information that the nation’s lawyers have on computers these days. Now imagine cyber-thieves having access to this data. Fortunately, lawyers are waking up to the risks.

More than four in 10 lawyers (41 percent) recently interviewed by Robert Half Legal said their law firm or company plans to spend more on cybersecurity-related tools and services in the next 12 months.

On average, lawyers expect to increase budgets by 13 percent.

With this move, the delicate details of millions of divorce cases, tax strategies and criminal offenses may be better protected.

This is nice, but you can also be proactive

If you’ve ever been involved in a sensitive case involving a lawyer, you may want to contact said lawyer and see how many details of your life are kept on hard drives. Maybe see what you can do to get that information off the hard drives and into your hands.

The recent breach in which Equifax has lost most of our Social Security numbers, (and other data), to cyber thieves should wake us all up to these vulnerabilities.
