#GLTHweek | Data leaks and cybersecurity awareness

In the spirit of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, our partners from Suments Data are thrilled to bring you an engaging online session that delves deep into the challenges of data leakage within organizations!

In today's dynamic legal landscape, the protection of confidential information stands as a paramount concern. Legal tech enterprises bear the responsibility of safeguarding privileged data, placing them squarely in the crosshairs of cyber threats that can lead to data leaks, confidentiality breaches, and substantial cybersecurity and compliance challenges. Despite the ever-evolving cybersecurity landscape, personal and sensitive data exposure on websites often goes unnoticed by many organizations. This critical gap in awareness poses a significant risk, as malicious actors increasingly employ sophisticated techniques to exploit these vulnerabilities.

As we immerse ourselves in the realm of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, we're thrilled to unveil a groundbreaking collaboration between the Global Legal Tech Hub (GLTH) and Suments Data, a pioneering startup committed to fortifying data leakage prevention. To mark the spirit of this month, and in recognition of the ever-present data security challenges, GLTH members are granted exclusive access to an in-depth data leaks report provided by Suments Data. This report promises to deliver valuable insights, enabling organizations to proactively address potential vulnerabilities and bolster their cyber resilience.

The hidden risks of metadata leaks

GLTH's Data Leakage Case Study delivered by Suments Data has been designed to shed light on an often-overlooked vulnerability: loss of confidentiality due to metadata information exposure. Metadata leaks present cybersecurity and regulatory risks, as reveal personal and sensitive information such as personal names, IDs, phone numbers, emails, internal usernames, GPS locations, tools (software and hardware), as well as intellectual property data.

Cybercriminals can arm themselves with tools to scan and exploit this valuable information, frequently disregarded by companies. That is why the 'Exposure of Sensitive Information Through Metadata' is documented as a known weakness in the Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE 1230), which forms an integral part of the widely recognized MITRE ATT&CK framework, globally-accessible knowledge base of adversary tactics and techniques based on real-world observations.
