1 out of 4 law firms are victims of a security incident. We can help you with cybersecurity.
Law firms are big targets for cyberattacks. In fact, 1 out of 4 law firms have been the victim of an incident, according to the American Bar Association. Clients are trusting you with their most sensitive information, so don’t let a single missed detail open the door to hackers. Auxiom can help rigorously protect your systems, data and reputation.
Be as prepared for cyber incidents as you are for your cases.
Law firms are targets for hackers because they see an opportunity to quickly gather large amounts of valuable and quality documents. By targeting law firms, they can quickly access large amounts of information such as technical secrets, business strategies, and financial data for numerous clients all at once. Law firms provide a quick detour around info of little value.
Many law firms don’t appreciate how big a target they actually are. Worse, in many cases firms don’t even realize they have been hacked or compromised until it is too late. While it’s technically possible to recover from a breach, the damage to your reputation is harder to undo.

Protecting you from the known and unknown.
The 6 most common cybersecurity threats against law firms are: phishing scams, hacked email accounts, ransomware, data breach, increased standards by clients, and malpractice allegations. Taking precautions against data leaks or breaches are more important than ever, as class-action lawsuits and individual disputes have occurred when disgruntled clients feel like their data wasn’t treated securely.
As your firms’ technology needs grow, the resources you have available to support an increasingly complex IT environment may not.
