The Threat of Cyber Crime

If it is not already, protecting your firm from the risk of cyber attack should be high on your agenda. According to HM Government there are around 1400 criminal organisations who are actively targeting the legal sector at this very moment, preying on out of date or inadequate methods of defence against cyber attacks.

Why is this relevant to you?

  • Changes to the Conveyancing Quality Scheme and Lexcel accreditations which require firms to take a more structured approach to cyber risk have come into effect from 1st May.
  • 60% of law firms reported a security incident in 2018. There is a recognition that conveyancing fraud is on the rise.
  • The SRA reporting 237 Scam Alerts in 2018.
  • West Midlands Police Cyber Crime Unit have reported £11m of client money was compromised in 2018.

In this short webinar we’ll cover the major changes to CQS and Lexcel and provide pointers on how to ensure your firm remains compliant when audit time rolls round.

Why cyber security is every leader's job & what partners need to know about protecting their firm

With the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) identifying the legal sector as a top target for cyber criminals along with the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) confirming that £11 million has been stolen by fraudsters in the last year – it’s crucial that you protect your law firm and clients from severe damage and your reputation.

Chris Harris (Managing Director) and Jen Williams (Head of IT, Cyber Essentials Assessor and ISO27001 Lead Auditor) from Lawyer Checker will discuss the various risks facing law firms in 2019, with a focus on why Cyber Security is Every Leaders job. They will also cover how accreditations such as Cyber Essentials can help create a more secure, anti-cyber crime culture within your business.
