Here are only some examples of the standards:
• Reduce access to sensitive data
We see more and more businesses implementing this type of standard. It’s crucial that law firms only allow access to the people who need the information to perform their job duties. All information shouldn’t be available to everyone because a large portion of data breaches happen from within.
• Segregate sensitive data from non-sensitive
All information mustn’t be stored in the same place. All law firms should have a means of keeping critically sensitive data separate.
• Encrypt all data
All information should have encryption measures to prevent outside forces from accessing it. Law firms should not be using standard email communication to send sensitive information from one place to another; you need a stronger and more secure method of communication.
In addition to these risks, because of their nature, law firms are often targeted by nation-state actors who want access to confidential information that could compromise national security.
