Cybersecurity issues are running hot. Hacking is becoming more pervasive and impactful, naturally following the expansion of computing into every aspect of our lives. Now our 'Internet of Things' (IoT) devices, wearables and other consumer devices are part of the "attack surface" that we project into the world. Businesses and organisations are devoting significant effort to managing the risks in response to constant probing for vulnerability and attacks seizing up their systems or stealing and exposing their information (and that of their consumers and partners). Lawyers are called on to advise and assist in relation to prevention, recovery and associated contracts and litigation, but they themselves (and the IT providers they rely on) are hardly immune to these same problems.
