Law firms are often targeted by hackers

Hackers are becoming an increasingly serious problem for law firms all around the world! Lawyers, you see, deal with extremely sensitive and confidential material on a regular basis. Client contracts, intellectual property, financial records, and other legal documents are all gold mines for cybercriminals. They know it’s worth its weight in gold, and they’re always looking for ways to get their hands on it.
As a result, lawyers are more likely than the general public to be victims of data theft. Hackers are continuously probing the defenses of law firms, attempting to exploit holes in their systems and obtain unauthorized access to confidential information. Once inside, the harm can be terrible. The repercussions of stealing sensitive material for financial gain, disclosing confidential information to the public, or using it for extortion can be severe for both the law firm and its clients.

Law firms are increasingly victims of data breaches

It is estimated that some 80 major U.S. law firms were hacked last year mainly by Chinese and Russian hackers. They break in and take systems hostage, stealing sensitive information and releasing it only at a high price. It also causes considerable reputational damage. Because once there is a data breach, all clients must be informed. By the way, small offices are also increasingly targeted. Their data is at least as interesting.

Human error is in a small corner

If you want to prevent this, working in the cloud is not enough. After all, when you work in the cloud, you are working with someone else’s computer. There can be mistakes in that too, and many companies take advantage of them. By the way, human error is also in a small corner. An office worker at a law firm in Assen, the Netherlands, clicked on a link that appeared to be from a well-known supplier. However, the link turned out to be from cybercriminals and several of the office’s files were taken, hostage. To regain access to the files, a sum of €5,750 in bitcoins was demanded.

Secure sensitive client data

As a lawyer, you have a legal obligation to properly secure the sensitive data of companies and individuals. That the Bar Association takes this issue seriously is evidenced by the topics they have written about. A good example follows.

Here is what we have to say

Law firms are very interesting to hackers. Why?

Confidential documents in court are gold for cybercriminals.

Stock market sensitive information of clients you advise makes information even more valuable

Data you lose is likely to be needed again soon. That's a good bargaining chip for a hacker

How does the free trial works?

Your free 14-day trial with Guardey is based on our Basic plan. In our basic plan, all the alarms will only be available for yourself or your own company, and you manage the alarms in-house. We don’t need any payment information to start your trial, and you can invite as many users as you want.

The majority of SMEs don’t have an in-house IT department or a team of cyber security specialists. Therefore we also offer Guardey co-managed and Guardey custom. In both plans, you are able to connect Guardey to a preferred Guardy IT partner or, of course, your own IT partner.

They can semi or fully manage the alarms and the health of your infrastructure so that you can focus on your business.

After your 14 days of the free trial, you can decide if you want to continue with a paid plan. Upgrading during your trial period means you stop your trial and upgrade to a paid plan. You need a verified payment method to upgrade.

How can I pay after the trial period?

We don’t ask for any payment information to start your trial.

If you want to upgrade during or after your free trial to a paid plan, you can use one of the below payment methods:

  1. Credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Maestro, PostePay, Cartes Bancaires)
  2. PayPal
  3. Direct Debit (iDeal SEPA)
