According to the FTC’s complaint, D-Link promoted the security of its routers on the company’s website, which included materials headlined “Easy to secure” and “Advance network security.” But despite the claims made by D-Link, the FTC alleged, the company failed to take steps to address well-known and easily preventable security flaws, such as:
- Nearly 10% of firms have not performed a formal information security and privacy assessment.
- Approximately one-third of firms do not hold cyber liability insurance policies.
- More than 55% of firms have either already established a cybersecurity practice or have plans to form one.
- A whopping 98% of law firm respondents to the ALM intelligence law firm survey believe that the legal industry is increasingly a target for attacks.
- 22% of law firms don’t have a data breach plan in place
- Only 50% of law firms have a cybersecurity team in place
- 87% state they train users on basic security practices yet only 47% conduct drills
- Most view cybersecurity as an IT issue vs the reality, it’s a business issue
