Encryption of invoice data transmitted electronically from law firms

It was a small item, but it touches a topic many readers may never consider: how secure from third parties is the information in electronic bills transmitted by law firms?

An item about Utica National Insurance Group, which uses billing review software from Allegient Systems, mentions that “every legal invoice submitted will be subject to a highly secure (128 bit encryption) communication link.” Every bit of me is impressed, all 128 of them, but I have no basis for comparison or experience to understand the issue. Has anyone ever hacked into a law department’s e-billing system?
