Did you know that Cybersecurity is one of the fastest growing litigation sectors? That means that there are disputes over cybersecurity now than ever before and it is now at the top of litigation cases in the corporate world.
Cybersecurity breaches have been on a steep rise primarily due to a lack of security against cyber criminals. But companies are also at risk of deliberate security breaches by members of staff.
A cybersecurity breach is also defined as a security violation or any unauthorized access or hacking into a network, account or software. These are some of the cybersecurity breaches that are identified as security violations and are liable for a litigation case:
Criminal hackers will use various methods to attack. One common method is phishing, which involves tricking users into clicking a malicious link or downloading an infected attachment. The ultimate goal is to retrieve sensitive data or/and installing ransomware, which will lead to theft, selling or holding the company to ransom.
Deciding who takes whom to court is a more complex matter. Contracts and terms and conditions or agreements will help decide who’s in breach of cybersecurity and who were the attackers, if they can be identified.
A litigation lawyer will assess the situation and tell you if you have a valid claim and against whom. The lawyer will gather evidence, including witnesses, and develop a case strategy in the litigation process.
