IT consulting in Los Angeles is necessary for legal institutions. Consider this: if you’re a cybercriminal, are you going to target “small potatoes”, or are you going to go for the “big kahuna”? Smart criminals will steal small amounts from multiple people over time so they don’t get caught. But most in crime aren’t doing things illegal owing to their wisdom and intelligence. Generally, they’re making ends meet and fall into something convenient they stick to until they’re caught or the bottom drops out. In other countries, cybercrime is lucrative. In some, it’s even legal to a degree. Perhaps not in an official sense, but anything of a criminal kind in such countries is likely beyond US prosecution–China is a perfect example of this.
Legal Firms Are Targets
Legal firms are prime targets. One, many in law are too busy understanding how to professionally defend or prosecute to get behind IT intricacies. They’re often wide open and don’t realize it. Two, legal firms are generally not on the “struggling” side of business. A good legal firm will have money to steal. Three, many legal firms don’t work with IT experts to line out the best security. Instead of having an outsourced or cloud-based security solution, they manage everything internally; often on antiquated servers that have vulnerabilities based on age alone.
Overcoming Cybercriminal Threats
Savvy cybercriminals working in cybercrime enterprises located on foreign soil won’t just stop at depleting assets, either. They can undermine mergers, steal sensitive data then use it as a means of blackmailing their targets. Here’s what you’ll want to do:
- Work with tech professionals
- Update security profiles as continuously as is feasible
- Train internal staff on shifting technology security trends
- Identify weak areas and fix or fortify them accordingly
IT consulting experts in Los Angeles can help keep you from “spinning your wheels”, as it were, chasing down the wrong security solutions. Technology is in continuous transition, meaning if you don’t update it at regular intervals or as continuously as it’s feasible to, you will have vulnerabilities. Updating security will necessarily require updating internal staff education, as well. Sometimes new protocols will be necessary. Sometimes what was excusable before no longer is. Such steps will help you identify and fix weak areas of security going forward.
