BLOG: Is your Firewall up to scratch?

Published: Bold Legal Group News Bulletin, 7th Sept 2016 

Reports of cybercrime are a daily occurrence and the legal industry is a primary target for criminals. The first line of defence for any business is network protection – in other words – A “Firewall”.

Many legal firms do not have the in-house skills or expertise required to install or securely configure what can be a complex and expensive technology – and often find themselves maintaining older appliances with the belief that by renewing this annually the unit will remain secure. Contrary to this belief, this is no longer the case due to the advanced evasion techniques that cyber-attackers now use, delivering malicious code in previously unseen payloads.

As the technologies required to combat these zero-day attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated, it is a growing requirement for data-conscious firms to bring in outsourced skills to set up and oversee their Firewall – ensuring client information is not jeopardised through weak or outdated Firewall technology.
