IRVINE, Calif., March 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Identillect Technologies Corp. (the "Company" or "Identillect") (TSX-V: ID, IDTLF, Frankfurt: 8ID) announces today that the West Virginia State Bar has agreed to publicize Delivery Trust® as a solution for protecting sensitive email communications while they are in transit. Identillect continues to partner with mandatory and voluntary legal associations across the United States to ensure that their members have access to the resources now available to secure sensitive email communications, a growing trend as lawyers experience an increasing number of cyberattacks nationwide.
The West Virginia State Bar, formed in 1947, is an agency of the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia. Serving approximately 9,000 active and inactive, in-state and out-of-state West Virginia-licensed attorneys, the West Virginia State Bar is among several early adopters developing relationships with cybersecurity organizations to expand both education and practice management solutions for its members. The West Virginia State Bar has identified Identillect as a partner that can help members implement security measures for email in transit.
Frederick M. Dean Rohrig, President of the West Virginia State Bar, commented, “We take pride in our commitment to excellence and integrity in all the services and benefits we offer to members. Our relationship with Identillect reflects our commitment to education and practice management solutions as cybersecurity surges in importance. We are pleased to be able to offer Identillect secure email services to our members at a reduced rate.”
According to LogicForce’s Law Firm Cyber Security Scorecard, 40% of surveyed law firms were not aware they were breached in 2016 (cyber-attacks-espionage/hackers-are-aggressively-targeting-law-firms). This statistic highlights a true need not only for tools to combat cyber threats but also increased awareness and education surrounding digital communication channels.
Identillect CEO Todd Sexton states, “The legal community has become a target for cyber criminals in recent years. The best way to combat being a target is to educate and deploy security protocols to minimize the chances of experiencing a data breach. Identillect is honored to be the email encryption-in-transit provider the West Virginia State Bar has agreed to promote. This partnership should help to protect members of the West Virginia State Bar, their law firms, and (most important) their clients. Identillect will work to continually educate West Virginia’s legal community on changing regulations and cybersecurity threats while providing tools to protect electronic communications.”
