The Panama Papers
As you have probably heard the Panama Papers were one of the most damaging hacking incidents for the clients of a law firm to date. The list of activities that were uncovered from tax evasion and tax avoidance to money laundering was staggering. In addition the range of public figures (read: CLIENTS) who were effected was equally incredible. The release of these private files brought down the Icelandic prime minister, and forced Britain’s prime minister at the time, David Cameron, to explain himself publicly. The prominence of Putin associates in the Panama Papers confirmed many things that were always suspected of Putin. China, also had its share of prominent people represented and damaged by this hack.
You have to ask yourself, what would happen if your client’s files were hacked? Would they be your clients the next day? Would you still have a business?
