Matthew Esworthy, a partner at Bowie & Jensen, LLC, was recently quoted in the Maryland Daily Record, providing insight as to why law firms tend to be targeted by digital hackers.
“Like many other small or midsize businesses, employees of the (law) firm including the lawyers, are not really trained or focused on cybersecurity of the firm or the various types of threats out there,” Esworthy said. “Rather they are focused on their practice. Law firms don’t often have the level of security that other companies operating in the digital economy have adopted, because I don’t think law firms think of themselves as a target. Their level of security can be less sophisticated than somebody that has been doing business in the digital economy and already has potentially experienced some issues and learned from it.”
