Lawyers And Cybersecurity in 2017



According to the American Bar Association’s Legal Technology Survey Report 2016, large law firms are the most likely to experience security breaches. While this may be because they represent more lucrative targets for hackers, the justification for cloud computing and data security is clear, with cloud computing used widely by small firms and solo practices.

The report findings identify that external hard drives are the most common type of backup and are used by 41% of law firms. Other forms of backup include: offsite (cloud), network (online), USB (hard drive), tape, RAID, CD and DVD.

Despite some hesitation in the legal space to move to the cloud, the statistics show offsite storage is more secure in a number of areas, from natural disasters, hacking and other forms of data corruption.
