According to the recent SRA Thematic review on Cyber Security, £2.5million worth of client money was stolen in the first six months of 2020. Cyber-crime doesn’t discriminate; it affects the biggest and the smallest and all those in between. Fraudsters thrive in a busy market, so it’s more important than ever that staff are educated about the tell-tale signs.

In this 45-minute webinar, Tom Lyes, Director of Engagement, at Lawyer Checker, will answer questions and share hints and tips about Fraud and Cyber Security prevention for law firms including:

- How to carry out an independent audit of your Cyber Security

- The current fraud landscape across Conveyancing

- The no's and the no brainers

- Where to point staff to help educate them

- The importance of password security

- How to reduce the chances of a criminal impersonating a law firm email address

- How to monitor email passwords that are available for sale on the dark web

CTS / Lawyer Checker webinar - Cyber-Attack Crisis Management for Law Firms

Date: Wednesday 26th May 2021

Time: TBC

Register here

Law firms are high on the target list for hackers. Even with enterprise-level security measures in place, firms remain at risk due to the sensitive and valuable nature of the data they hold.

It’s near impossible to continuously protect against all threats. Firms must fully prepare for a cyber-attack event to ensure they respond quickly when it happens and minimise the damage caused.

This event we discuss how firms can:

  • Protect themselves and understand how to prevent threats
  • Minimise the damage to their reputation and their balance sheet
  • Remain compliant and avoid regulator fines following an attack

Time: 11am

Director of Engagement at Lawyer Checker Tom Lyes will sit down with Pauline B Cyber Consultant and Sector lead at the National Cyber Security Centre.

Tom will be asking Pauline about emerging and growing threats such as ransomware in the legal sector, home working considerations, insider threat and delve into some of the resources that the NCSC have made available to help law firms educate staff at all levels of the business.

The NCSC provides a single point of contact for SMEs, larger organisations, government agencies, the general public and departments. They also work collaboratively with other law enforcement, defence, the UK’s intelligence and security agencies and international partners.

This promises to be a fascinating discussion which will provide practical advice to law firms from the country’s leading source of cyber knowledge.
