Date: 13th July
Cyber risk and fraud are some of the most pressing problems law firms face today.
In autumn last year the SRA’s Thematic Review on cyber-crime stated that 60% of the firms they visited said they thought their biggest potential vulnerability to cybercrime was linked to the knowledge and behaviours of their staff. They visited 40 firms who had been the victim of a cyber-attack and while not all incidents culminated in a financial loss for clients, 23 of the 30 cases in which firms were directly targeted saw a total of more than £4m of client money stolen.
At any one time, there are 1400 criminal organisations targeting the legal sector according to HM Government. It is critical that law firms adopt a culture of cyber awareness. The biggest risk to your business from a cyber-point of view is your staff and leaders should drive the cultural behaviour needed to fight cyber-crime.
