Law firms and in-house legal departments are obvious and attractive targets for cyber attacks due to the sensitive information they hold.

A government-commissioned survey by professional services firm PricewaterhouseCoopers this year showed that 69 per cent of large organisations suffered from an external attack, up from 55 per cent in 2014. More than two-thirds of small businesses experienced a similar attack, compared with 33 per cent the previous year.

With their regulatory responsibilities, COLPs and COFAs are at the forefront of protecting their firms on line security and integrity, whilst ensuring that all staff are aware of their individual responsibilities.

These timely forums will provide vital support and guidance on:

  • How cyber security ties in with your regulatory obligations
  • Cyber threats to your business and you
  • Cyber attacks (phishing and hacking) and their impact.
