“How prepared are law firms to face cyber security threats?”

On October 17th, 2016, Executive Managing Partner Daniel Garrie was interviewed by Thomson Reuters on the question, “How prepared are law firms to face cyber security threats?

Thomson Reuters’ Joseph Raczynski spoke with Mr. Garrie on the cyber security issues facing law firms today, in the wake of the April 2016 hacking of Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca. Questions posed included “Why do hackers and other cyber criminals target law firms?” and “What steps can law firms take to get prepared to deal with these threats?”

The white paper Client Data: Secure as the Weakest Link, published with Thomson Reuters, further discusses these issues. It was co-authored Daniel Garrie and Rhea Siers, scholar in residence at the Center for Cyber and Homeland Security and an adjunct professor at George Washington University.
