Law firms continue to be vulnerable to state-sponsored incursions from China, Russia and Iran, as demonstrated by a recent report detailing an alleged Chinese hack into the systems of a U.S. firm known for its expertise in intellectual property.
Internet technology company Recorded Future reported that the unnamed law firm, with clients in the pharmaceutical, technology, electronics, biomedical and automotive sectors, was one of three targets of a group of Chinese hackers between November 2017 and September 2018. The other victims were an international apparel company and a Norwegian cloud services provider.
