Losing one password is often the reason law firms get fully compromised.
Stealing your IT Administrator’s password is Objective Number 1 for a hacker. You would be surprised to discover, that on average it takes them from 5 minutes to 24 hours to obtain it from the moment any single employee in your firm gets hacked via phishing or malware.
- 30% of employees open phishing links sent in fraudulent messages – criminals are highly skilled to mimic legitimate legal documents and e-mail contents and sometimes even use sms/social networks.
- Contrary to popular belief, IT departments are one of the most susceptible to credential theft attacks – due to their self-confidence and lack of proper cyber-security training.
- The spread of an malware infection can be instant – As DLA Piper found out, even global law firms with representation in 40 countries can be completely shut down for weeks in an instant due to a malware infection.
- All a hacker needs is to steal one credential (password) – to completely overtake control of all your IT systems.
Making sure your IT department's accounts are safe:
Privileged Access Workstation (PAW) the right way
Our engineers worked in Microsoft and know their PAW offering – in our humble opinion, we managed to create a more efficient one which is also faster to implement and more secure.
Independent and Unbiased
We follow the assessment methodology developed by the NSA (NSA-ISAM), augmented with our own vast international experience in security assessments. We let checkbox auditors do their assessments separately – we evaluate only practical, to-the-point and actually impacting defense posture elements.
Does your IT department manage security well? The answer will be no. But how bad exactly is it and which are the most critical changes to be implemented ASAP, before someone has used the loophole to capitalize on it?
First things - First
By the time you have finished reading our report you will already have a clear picture of which weaknesses need to be dealt with immediately and how much will it cost you (financially and otherwise) – as we deliver a clear priority-based timeline for remediation execution.
Security Risk Awareness & Avoidance
Are your associates, attorneys and managing partners on the same page about handling passwords, access, personal and company-owned devices in a secure way? Because we have seen firm leadership using the password Password123 and we have seen associates giving away their e-mail password over the phone…
We will help you monitor your IT (and other departments) progress with the defense measures necessary by continuously auditing their work and reporting on any discrepancies or missed project deadlines.
Continuous Defense Improvement
Ever thought email can be a secure form of communication? Were the e-mail boxes of your employees easy to break into? Not anymore!
You will be able to sell your service as more secure than the competition after the assessment is complete and you start implementing our recommendations. Everyone wants to know their law firm takes their security seriously.
We have helped firms decommission expensive, outdated and obsolete security devices in favor of cheaper and more efficient options.
We have the red forest (ESAE) alternative and are ready to implement it for you.
