ABA survey: lawyers at most large firms unaware of data breaches

A recent American Bar Association survey, Security Snapshots: Threats and Opportunities, conducted by the ABA's Legal Technology Resource Center, asserts that "Fully 70% of large firm respondents reported that they didn't know if their firm had experienced a security breach." The survey findings also implied a systemic, widespread lack of information security best practices across the industry.
