How to attack law firms using ransomware.
And how to teach people to spot the signs.
Client data is big business. And the legal sector is a gold mine.
So much sensitive data. So little security.
Yeah, most firms have technological security measures in place. But there’s almost no focus on human factors security.
So you have people storing sensitive data on personal devices, reusing passwords and clicking phishing links. Why? Because they aren’t trained not to.
In other words, it’s an industry full of people who can’t identify signs of ransomware.
Too bad you aren’t a cyber criminal, right? Right?
Well, if you are, now’s the time to start rubbing your hands together and laughing maniacally.
If you WORK in legal, you may also want to attend …. and take notes.
