Despite strengthening security across and beyond the business, many legal organizations overlook a critical vulnerability with surprising frequency – the risk presented by third parties. Cybersecurity risk is further heightened when outside counsel engages multiple partners to support their business – those fourth-party vendors your counsel uses for court reporting, record retrieval, transcription, and other litigation support services.
