On April 20th, an article titled: “Temen que bufetes puedan ser ‘hackeados’ para fines negativos” was published in the Panama America newspaper, where it explains that other Panamanian law firms could suffer a possible malicious intrusion in order to extract valuable information about their customers and activities. In my opinion, no security system, whether internal or external, it’s 100% foolproof. It depends a lot on how vulnerable is your infrastructure and how can we minimize a breach when we deploy different layers of security. There are several ways of accomplishing it, the idea here is to make the intrusion harder and wait and see if the hacker desist on his/her attempt to infiltrate your network.
