Not sure if you are seeking for the general risk analysis or only systems
related.  These are the obvious things I see in addition to individual
systems security:

-make sure everyone shreds paper docs before trashing
-address physical access to file cabinets where hard docs are kept
-address fire protection for those cabinets
-secure the voice/phone server where they record legal statements
-educate atty's to use complex voicemail passwords
-educate receptionists of social engineering

Good luck.

Subject: Law office recommendations?


I wish to pick the collective brain for a moment if I may.

I am working up an initial service quote for a law office of 100+ associates
and 45+ attorneys. Do you have any recommendations of areas to be sure to
get into the Risk Analysis? They've already been hit by Slammer and a script
kiddie "pubber". I just want to be on my toes as I have not worked for
attorneys before and all those sharks in the water makes me want to do this
one really well.

Also, if there's a more appropriate list for this I'd be glad to move this
discussion to it.

Thanks everyone,
