In September 2015, in an appearance before the U.S. House Intelligence Committee, then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper warned that the next “push of the envelope” in cybersecurity might be attacks that change or manipulate electronic information in order to compromise its accuracy or reliability, instead of the more easily detected deletion or disruption of access to information. With data integrity in question, he explained, decision making by senior government officials (both civilian and military), corporate executives, investors or others could be “impaired.” Two years later, we may now be seeing the beginning of such insidious attacks, in the context of GPS spoofing — a technique that sends false signals to systems that use GPS signals for navigation.

Gone are the days of naively assuming our confidential data is secure. Increasingly, clients, stakeholders, regulators and others are demanding proof that firms are actively protecting the PII to which they have access, and this evidence is being demanded both before and after security incidents. It is imperative law firms have the positions and processes in place to handle security incidents with urgency, accuracy and completeness.

As a matter of practice, law firms generate and store incomprehensible amounts of data. Most, if not all, of that data has been digitized and many firms that recognize the untapped value of their data have begun to leverage sophisticated technologies to mine it for reusable work product and valuable insights.
