Our 2017 annual professional indemnity insurance research revealed spam emails / phishing as the most likely form of fraudulent activity through which firms have been targeted in attempts to steal / access data. Given that the everyday nature of private client work requires the exchange and retention of sensitive personal information, ensuring the security of data is of prime importance in today’s ever-connected world.
To help, we created a cybersecurity and scam prevention online resource earlier this year, to help you:
- understand more about cybersecurity; its threats and risks to the legal sector
- help everyone at your firm to increase their knowledge about cyber risks through our webinars
- access guidance and advice to take a proactive approach to reduce cyber threats

We’ve now also launching an email digest of cybersecurity news relevant to the legal sector, and you can sign up now to receive your weekly digest, as well as information on endorsed cybersecurity providers, and information about relevant Law Society training, events and guidance
