It happens so innocently: an employee logs into email, sees a message that his password needs to be updated in Outlook and clicks on the link provided. But the email wasn’t generated by Microsoft, it was sent from a cybercriminal who had an email address that looked legitimate. Suddenly, an attack has been launched on your employee and your firm.
The time is now to better understand your firm’s weaknesses. What systems are vulnerable? How can you best secure the environment? How can you best secure data stored in the cloud? How can you best secure on-premises infrastructure? How do you secure your firm’s general computing environment?
Our article “The Top 6 Penetration Testing Fails” will help you answer these extremely tough questions.
We'd love to share advice on enhancing your firm's cybersecurity. Call us at 1-800-541-0450 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.

Law firm cybersecurity continues to evolve. This is more than just a technology issue or an added clause in the retainer agreement—it’s one of the biggest risks that law firms will face in 2019. Cybersecurity is part of doing business, and pressure from clients is causing firms to invest and focus more on cybersecurity and its concomitant risk management.
Cyberattacks have become so frequent that it is no longer a matter of whether firms will be the victim of a cyberattack, but a question of when and to what extent. This is a result of easily accessible malware and increasingly sophisticated cybercriminals. It is no longer enough to relegate cyber-risk management to the IT department and it requires more than a general guideline on computer use. These prevalent threats are changing the entire IT ecosystem, including documents, websites, emails, servers, cloud applications and mobile devices.
In this webinar, attendees will hear from a panel of law firm professionals, information security experts and IT professionals who will discuss the current security landscape at law firms. The discussion will cover law firms' responsibility to manage cybersecurity, including risk management, potential future threats and steps firms should take today to ensure the security of their firms' and clients' data. The panel will also briefly highlight current security legislation and regulation highlights.
During this moderated discussion, attendees will learn:
• The state of law firm data security today
• The biggest cybersecurity risks for law firms
• What to do to manage cyber risk
• How to recognize a cyberthreat
• The lawyer’s cyber standard of care
• Increasing client requirements of law firms
• How to avoid cybersecurity legal malpractice claims

Recent research has shown changes in the effectiveness of various phishing attacks.
Cofense, previously PhishMe, issued a report based on 1,400 clients in 23 industries in more than 50 countries that notes that 7.5 million phishing emails were reported in 2017 alone. But the effectiveness of phishing campaigns has shifted.
In prior research, users were most emotionally motivated to open emails that made them feel a sense of urgency, fear or opportunity. Those three emotional motivators have now been replaced with entertainment, social and reward/recognition.
