At the request of the legal sector, we are  partnering with law firms to accelerate the community’s ability to improve its resiliency. As re-enforced by the recent Executive Order on Information Sharing, a strong community defense model is the future of cyber security,” said Cindy Donaldson, Vice President of Products and Services, FS-ISAC.
