Survey: 41 percent of lawyers to boost cybersecurity budgets

Four in 10 lawyers plan to boost spending on cybersecurity next year, with average budget increases of 13 percent, according to a study released Thursday by a national legal consulting and staffing firm.

Robert Half Legal said its survey was based on 200 telephone interviews with lawyers, law firms and companies around the U.S. Among the findings:

• 35 percent said their budget for cybersecurity-related tools and services will increase in the next year;
• 6 percent said budgets will increase significantly;
• 44 percent said budgets would stay the same;
• Only 1 percent said spending would decrease.

Remaining respondents said they didn’t know or declined to answer.

Robert Half is conducting a free webinar on the survey at 3 p.m. Monday, Oct. 23. To view the webinar, register here.
