Working together to protect your reputation and your brand, by helping build resilience to cyber threats, across existing and new, digital technologies
The legal sector is renowned for its client confidentiality, for being a ‘trusted’ profession that protects both clients and their data. Yet the 2018 report “The cyber threat to the UK legal sector” from the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) highlights the vulnerability of legal sector to cyber attack. Law firms are identified as a key target for cyber criminals due to the sensitive nature of client information, handling of significant funds and their role as a key enabler in commercial and business transactions. With 60% of law firms reported to have suffered an information security incident and the SRA reporting that over £11 million of client money was stolen due to cyber crime in a 12 month period, the importance of robust cyber security measures has never been more apparent.
Yet law firms are also in the midst of a digital transformation journey, that with it, raises a new set of security issues and challenges. With many firms migrating services to the cloud, delivering new customer experiences and agile workspaces for their staff, the ability to manage the evolving cyber landscape becomes ever increasingly complex.
