Cybersecurity Responses to ABA’s 2020 Legal Technology Survey Report Indicate Work Still Needs to Be Done (October 29, 2020)

The ABA 2020 Legal Technology Survey Report is out and the ABA has published the statistics related to Technology Basics and Security.

Sharon Nelson, President of Sensei Enterprises, Inc., breaks down the results in her post Cybersecurity Stats are in for the ABA’s 2020 Legal Technology Survey Report. The responses indicate there are still improvements that can be made with some powerful security tools not in widespread use by law firms. Some examples include two-factor authentication (used by 39% of respondents), intrusion prevention (29%), intrusion detection (29%) and remote device management and wiping (28%). Many law firms do not have cyber insurance.

The report and Sharon’s post contain valuable information. Your law firm may not be using all the available tools now, but you certainly want to understand what tools are available.
