New York, NY – May 9, 2019 –Cornerstone Information Technologies, LLC (Cornerstone.IT) is pleased to announce that the company has earned a Prevalent Business Partner Badge in recognition of the company’s excellence in protecting its own data, and by extension, securing the sensitive data of its client Law Firms. “Cornerstone.IT is honored to be a member of the Prevalent Vendor Network,” says co-founder of the IT Business Solutions and Managed Services Provider, Jim Moreo. “Being part of the Prevalent community further demonstrates Cornerstone’s commitment to the legal industry.

A law firm is a prime target for a cyberattack due to the volume of sensitive client information under its protection. “The Legal Vendor Network is a great way for law firms to help build better third-party risk management maturity, and it all starts with vendors like Cornerstone.IT taking their security posture seriously,” said Brad Hibbert, Chief Strategy Officer at Prevalent. “Acquiring a Prevalent Business Partner badge requires a vendor’s dedication to protecting sensitive client data from cyberthreats.”
Prevalent’s Legal Vendor Network (LVN) focuses specifically on protecting law firms and their clients from third-party risk, ensuring that vendor risks are properly scrutinized. Through a secure cloud portal, vendors submit security controls information in the form of a standard risk assessment questionnaire and any necessary supplemental evidence.
