8 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Ben Rothke on May 20, 2013
Format: Paperback
Had Locked Down: Information Security for Lawyers not been published by the American Bar Association (ABA) and 2 of its 3 authors not been attorneys; one would have thought the book is a reproach against attorneys for their obliviousness towards information security and privacy. In numerous places, the book notes that lawyers are often clueless when it comes to digital security.

With that, the book is a long-overdue and valuable information security reference for anyone, not just lawyers.

Such a title is needed as the legal field has embraced digital technology for nearly every aspect of the legal field, has magazines and conferences about legal technology and much more. Wireless (often insecure) networks are pervasive in corporate offices throughout legal America.

The underlying problem is that while attorneys often know the intricacies of tort law, court proceedings and the like; they are utterly unaware of the information security and privacy risks surrounding the very technologies they are using. In many firms, the lawyers think that someone is protecting their data, but don't understand their requirements around those areas of data protection.

Legal IT systems are a treasure trove of personal data. Many small law firms are extremely attractive to identity thieves gives their systems have significant amount of personal information via social security numbers, credit card information, birth dates, financial information and much more. Small law firms are notorious for weak information security controls and attackers will scan those systems and networks for vulnerabilities.

A pervasive aspect of the book is ABA rule 1.6 regarding the confidentiality of information regarding client-lawyer relationships.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I paid over $50 for this book in September 2012. It was delivered May 7, 2013. I anticipated the delivery eagerly. I could not be more disappointed.

The vast majority of the book is a series of Appendices which are nothing more than Xeroxed boilerplate from the public domain. Chapter 18 is nothing but a list, mainly of websites and RSS feeds.

This book is totally worthless and is a gross breach of the Warranty of Merchantability. I cannot send it back fast enough.
