A new national Special Interest Group (SIG) has been formed to support the legal industry called the National Legal Industry Special Interest Group. Its purpose is to organize communication, education and sharing of threat information to all active InfraGard members. Our demographic needs to extend beyond the current critical infrastructure hierarchy in that our firms often represent multiple sectors, so it’s common for a firm to be simultaneously engaged with clients in various sectors. We may be doing M&A work for a global organization, while doing government contract work, while helping build our next nuclear power plant, while suing China over intellectual property theft, etc. Our users typically travel globally and many are unaware of the threats that exist while visiting some nation states. Without the ability to organize and share information specific to the practice areas that firms represent, there will always be targeted attacks that compromise our nation’s secrets and intellectual capital. In addition to firms, our demographics extend to all corporate legal departments and our court systems. Our target demographic is the general counsel or related individual in charge of risk for their organizations, as well as managing partners of firms and individuals who work in the legal field and our court systems.
