Legal Cyber-Security:
A Q&A with the West Midlands Police Cyber Crime Unit

Recorded on: June 11, 2017 – 12:00 PM

60% of law firms reported a cyber-attack in 2017 (PwC) - although the number of unidentified or unreported attacks is no doubt much higher.

So, it’s clear that the legal sector remains a prime target for cyber-criminals. And increasing reliance on technology in law firms is only likely to make the threat even more difficult to manage. So, what’s the answer? How do you take advantage of emerging technology whilst remaining secure?

Well, in our latest webinar we invited the West Midlands Police Cyber-Crime Unit to answer some of your cyber-security questions - giving you some practical tips on how to secure your practice along the way.

In this webinar we explore:

  • The latest cyber-threats impacting the legal sector

  • Practical steps towards greater cyber-security

  • Common cyber concerns in law firms

  • How to develop cyber-security strategy
