LexisNexis Study Finds Law Firms Do Not Encrypt Email Conversations

email

Summary: A new study from LexisNexis has found that just 22 percent of law firms encrypt the email conversations sent to clients and third parties. 

A new study from LexisNexis found that nine in 10 law firms use email for business purposes, according to the Wall Street Journal. The study also found that only 22 percent of those firms encrypt the communications send via email.

The study also found that 77 percent of law firms utilize a confidentiality statement in the email and use the statement as their main defense.

Christopher T. Anderson, the senior product manager at LexisNexis, said the following about the study: “There’s clearly a disconnect between expressed security concerns–and measures law firms employ to protect their clients and themselves. Relying on a mere statement of confidentiality when sharing privileged communications by email is a weak measure–and further it might protect the law firm but affords very little protection for the client.”

In another survey, of the Federal Communication Commission’s Telephone Consumer Protection Act, found that 43 percent of request-for-information webpages stay non-compliant in the 10 months since it was implemented. PerformLine conducted the study and it found that 40 percent of calls that were monitored failed to follow the checks implemented for call centers.

Another survey found that big banks continued to be the main target for cybercriminals across the globe after an analysis of 6.5 million emails from 11 industries. The study was conducted by Agari, a data security firm.
