Key Considerations for Law Firm Disaster Recovery Plans
Since 1980, the U.S. has notched 230 weather and climate related disasters worth more than $1 billion in damage into its collective belt, with a jaw-dropping cost that’s northward of $1.5 trillion. These numbers encompass property damage and loss, lost wages, and total the often incalculable losses businesses suffer when they cannot operate because their physical locations have been damaged or destroyed.
But for those who have suffered disaster of a man-made sort (think ransomware, other kinds of cybercrime, and other business disruptions), the effects on business continuity can be just as devastating as when the roof physically blows off an office park. And indeed, very real digital security threats abound. According to Cisco’s 2017 Annual Cybersecurity Report, ransomware attacks—in which an end user clicks on a suspicious email attachment, for example, and ends up downloading encrypting software onto their machine, which then holds the files ransom—rose some 350 percent from the previous year.
