Whether it be a partner, a paralegal, or a secretary, employees working in the legal sector handle an incredible amount of sensitive information, from medical and financial data to merger and acquisition (M&A) data.

The vast majority of incidents, though, were caused by human error. For example, fat fingering an email to a similarly-named recipient or a failure to redact.
