In The All Together

While there are strategies legal practitioners can employ to ensure that third party vendors, consultants and law firms live by data security standards, in the event of a breach the hiring organization will still bear responsibility. Contracts and requirements may ensure that vendors contribute to the mitigation of issues following a cyberbreach— and due diligence may ease regulatory action—but all fallout will not be avoided. Evaluating a third party for cyber-readiness starts with having your own plan in place.
