Law firms at risk: Why you need to safeguard Privileged Account credentials now

A recent law firm breach infiltrated an email server in which Chinese hackers used stolen information associated with merger deals to make over $4 million by discovering stocks about to soar in value. This incident reinforces what the legal industry now recognizes as a major threat: law firms are the newest and softest target of cybercriminals intent on stealing and monetizing confidential information, from market-moving M&A intelligence to sensitive patent filings.

In most breach incidents, hackers target the takeover of user accounts and then move on to privileged accounts which then gives them unrestricted access to a law firm’s most sensitive information. To safeguard privileged accounts—your “keys to the kingdom” — law firms must elevate and automate Privileged Account Management (PAM) and security.

Join Thycotic PAM security experts as they explain how hackers and malicious insiders target privileged accounts at law firms, and how you can implement automated security solutions that detect user compromise before sensitive assets are stolen.
