IRVINE, Calif., March 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Identillect Technologies Corp. (the "Company" or "Identillect") (TSX-V: ID), a trusted leading provider of compliant email security, announces The Virginia Bar Association (the VBA) has selected Delivery Trust® as the preferred solution for bar members to meet and exceed the regulatory requirements to protect sensitive communications. Identillect recently has partnered with numerous bars and legal associations to provide the legal community with the simplest and most secure way to communicate with clients and associates.
The Virginia Bar Association has more than 4,700 members and is the first and largest statewide voluntary bar group in Virginia. The VBA provides valuable professional and supported services for its members and takes pride in providing security education and digital communication tools that bar members have direct access to use.
R. Yvonne Cockram, executive director of the VBA, commented, “The Virginia Bar Association is committed to advancing cybersecurity protection for our bar members and is eager about the Identillect partnership. This partnership provides a strong security platform for our members along with advanced education to better understand and protect against cyber-threats and regulatory compliance. We believe Delivery Trust will provide significant benefit.”
Identillect CEO Todd Sexton states, “Identillect serves bar associations across the United States and is a trusted name in secure legal communication. We are committed to the security and integrity of secure attorney communication. Identillect looks forward to serving The Virginia Bar Association members’ cybersecurity needs.”
In a recent American Bar Association article, David Ries, a well-known lawyer and author on cybersecurity topics, stated, “Confidential data in computers and information systems, including those used by attorneys and law firms, faces greater security threats today than ever before—and they continue to grow! Security breaches are becoming so prevalent that there is a new mantra in cybersecurity today: ‘It’s when, not if’ a law firm or other entity will suffer a breach.” An ABA Tech Report 2017 article highlighted that lawyers are being specifically targeted.
Cybersecurity threats are increasing, with 43% of cyberattacks aimed at small businesses because of a lack of security infrastructure. The damages that cybercrimes create for businesses have no end in sight. It is estimated that businesses will incur more than $6 trillion annually by 2021. The best way a business can combat being another statistic is through employee education and security protocols.
