Law Firm Faces Negligence Class Action Lawsuit Alleging Poor Cyber Security

A Chicago law firm faces a lawsuit alleging they failed to properly protect sensitive client information.  Johnson & Bell faces a class action citing JBoss, VPN, and SSL vulnerabilities.  Interestingly, according to the filing, there was no evidence of compromise but the suit claims the firm could have been easily penetrated.

How many other law firms could face similar legal actions for allegations of poor cyber security practices? This could be a significant issue for legal firms of all sizes across the country.
