"Four in 10 (42%) law firms surveyed across Europe did not know whether or not they had suffered a data breach in the previous three years."
- "Sensitive and confidential information held by legal firms is at risk of exposure because many do not check whether their employees implement information security measures."
- "Commenting on the survey results, Christian Toon, head of information security at Iron Mountain Europe said: 'Our information risk study reveals a worrying level of complacency across the legal sector in Europe.'"
Adding color, Frank Maher, a lawyer at Liverpool-based Legal Risk LLP stated: “If you are looking at data protection, law firms are way behind, absolutely no doubt. A few of the largest firms are just about getting it right but the vast majority barely even get to base camp on compliance."
