Why do Law Firms Need the Apex Cybersecurity Certification?
Information security is becoming one of the most crucial factors determining whether a customer will trust your firm with their confidential information.
Law firms are attractive targets. They hold sensitive, confidential data ranging from the personal (divorce, personal injury) to the professional (contract negotiations, trade secrets, mergers and acquisitions, financial data and more) that, if compromised, could cause catastrophic damage both to the firm and its clients.
The Wall Street Journal reported that hackers broke into the networks of two of the nation’s most prestigious firms, Cravath Swaine & Moore and Weil Gotshal & Manges, in 2015.
The #PanamaPapers breach where Mossack Fonseca had 11.5 million of its client’s documents stolen will forever highlight the importance of showing clients your firm has taken steps to be more cybersecure.
To date, there is no single trusted certification of cybersecurity approval which customers and auditors can use to determine if your law firm is adhering to best practices.
What does the certification specifically provide?
