With the Panama Paper incident and other noteworthy recent law firm security breaches top of mind (see, “Hackers Breach Law Firms,” Wall Street Journal (March 29, 2016)), law firms in the U.S. and around the world are increasingly concerned about being hacked by cybercriminals (see, “Cyberattack Exposes Law Firms’ Weak Spots,” Wall Street Journal (Dec. 29, 2016). In response, many firms have significantly upgraded their perimeter security systems to ensure that only authorized and authenticated users can access their systems.
