Law Firm Cyberattack

Identifying Your Law Firm’s Vulnerabilities

“Law firms are tremendous concentrations of really critical, private information. Infiltrating those computer systems is a really optimal way to obtain economic and personal information,” a statement on the state of security for law firms by Bradford Bleier, unit chief of FBI cyber division.

Every day, law firms manage sensitive information for their clients, including mergers and acquisitions, investments, business strategies and other intellectual property. This has made them a prime target for phishing and cyberattacks. In fact, Cisco’s 2015 Annual Security Report named law firms as the seventh highest target for cybercriminals. October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month, which is why now, more than ever, it is necessary to identify and resolve vulnerabilities within your firm.

SiteLock SMART Tolly Report

What Your Endpoint Security Isn’t Telling You

By Kevin Tolly
Founder, The Tolly Group


Who works 24/7? Not you, I hope – but hackers around the globe are busy trying to compromise systems 24 hours a day, seven days a week. “Next-gen” is not just a convenient marketing term, it is very accurate label for new types of threats and new types of solutions designed to counter those threats.

The basic nature of PC and server (aka “endpoint”) security and threats to same had not changed in many years. For years, the enemy would be the rogue program (.EXE) or Word macro that would find its way on to our system and either destroy our data or perhaps surreptitiously take control of our system either to steal our data or add our system to its army of drones – or both.

The traditional endpoint security solution would rely on its researchers to learn the digital fingerprints – usually referred to as the signature – of the virus. Upon detection, the entire offending program or macro would be isolated (quarantined) and, ultimately, deleted.

What is Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF)?

More often than not, when people think of a hacker, they think of someone technologically infiltrating a network and stealing mass amounts of sensitive information sitting behind it.

Panic ensues among the students, who instantly turn to twitter and email for help.

Here’s what happened: The school did not have proper website security in place and consequently was the target of a cyberattack that shut down its website. Higher education institutions are attractive and lucrative targets to cybercriminals. In 2015, the education sector was among the top three sectors breached, behind healthcare and retail. College campuses store a wealth of confidential student and faculty data, including medical records, financial information and intellectual property for products and prescription drugs. Some of the most common attacks cybercriminals use to breach higher education institutions are hacking, malware and DDoS attacks.
