Deceptions in Legal Services

Guarding Against APTs to Defend Client Interests and Client Trust

Mergers and acquisitions, SEC filings, corporate restructuring, litigation, patent applications, employee contracts—everything important happens with legal counsel. Law firms traditionally have been underinvested in security defenses, so they are easy targets for advanced cyber attackers. In many cases, law firms are much easier targets for attackers than the firm’s clients themselves.

As digital archiving and data storage have taken over, e-discovery systems expose law firms and their clients to threats in emails, PDFs, spreadsheets, and other documents. Attackers can exploit malware in these files to gain a foothold in the law firm’s network. Once inside, attackers steal client data for insider trading, resale, alteration, or even destruction, depending on their motives. Attackers also see law firms as conduits to the clients’ networks. If an attacker has been unsuccessful at penetrating the client’s network, he can exploit vulnerabilities in the law firm’s network as another potential avenue.

Deception can help law firms accelerate deployment of defenses that protect their most critical business asset—client trust. It’s a simple, relatively low-cost solution that doesn’t require an army of security experts to use or manage. Deception gives law firms a demonstrable means of stopping attackers before they can access confidential data.

  • Protect clients and their data: Detecting attackers as early in the attack lifecycle as possible is crucial. Illusive detects an attacker within just a few moves, so you can stop them before they move laterally through the network closer to confidential documents and other vital assets.
  • Accelerate cybersecurity improvements: For law firms that have not kept pace with rapidly evolving cyber threats or have faced a shortage of cyber talent, Illusive quickly improves protection. It is agentless and deploys quickly and transparently in just days. In addition to tracking urgent incidents, the dashboard shows the current level of APT risk the organization faces, provides insights on how the deception environment can be improved, and helps proactively identify potentially unauthorized access levels and indicators that should be investigated.
  • Achieve a tailored solution cost-effectively. There’s no such thing as an effective, cookie-cutter deception solution. To appear realistic, deceptions must be tailored to mimic real documents, emails, file shares, and other components within each firm. Illusive’s AI-driven solution automatically analyzes your environment and designs, deploys, and manages custom-built deceptions—all with very little human effort.
  • Empower over-stretched security teams. Because only a malicious actor can trigger an alert, security teams know that every incident Illusive generates warrants investigation. With each incident, detailed forensic data is instantly collected from the compromised system. Incident responders can immediately see how far the attacker is from reaching key systems, and has the contextual information needed to take action—and prevent the incident from becoming a business crisis.
