Single Cybersecurity Framework For Law Firms?

Having a national committee create a cybersecurity framework for law firms will: give lawyers appropriate guidance on expectations for cybersecurity, help to protect clients, protect the professional standing of lawyers, and create a consistent standard for attorneys which local bars could adopt. It would also make working with vendors easier, as attorneys can point to the framework as a basis for discussions on law firm cybersecurity. Rather than compete with the work already being done in the ABA and state bar associations, it would help to unify and strengthen those efforts.  We Need A Cybersecurity Framework For Law Firms, Law360, March 28, 2018
