Challenges at the Legal Frontline

  • Open Communication, Open Risks: Communication with clients, essential for legal procedures, often comes from varied domains, making the firm susceptible to cyber threats veiled as legitimate client communications.
  • Web Exploration: Essential online investigations for case studies exposed the legal team to potential cyber threats from un-sanitized file downloads.
  • Insufficient Defenses: Adopted Email and Web Security Gateways, while efficient, could not shield against the unforeseen threats of zero-day attacks, leaving a risk gap.

Existing Constraints

  • Zero Trust Conundrum: Applying this principle consistently was challenging.
  • Operational Hurdles: The looming threat of ransomware-induced operational disruptions.
  • Reputation on the Line: Any security breach could lead to adverse publicity.
  • External Threats: Risky file exchanges with external legal entities and clients added to the third-party threat vector.
  • Zero-Day Vulnerabilities: The existing defenses were not equipped to combat zero-day malware attacks.
