As technology competency has become essential in the legal industry and cloud adoption has grown more widespread, law firms are facing a different set of challenges when it comes to information security.
 
Abacus’ infographic explores the essential virtual law office security elements for today’s modern law practice.
 
Of the top law firms in the U.S., 80 percent have experienced some form of data breach. 15 percent of law firms reported a security breach in 2013, 26 percent of which resulted in a loss of billable time. In fact, most data breaches cost law offices money. The average cyber attack costs a business $300,000.
