The legal sector is at significant risk of cybercrime, cyber attacks and scams, partly because of the sensitive data and significant monies held by law firms.
62 per cent of law firms reported a cyber attack in 2015, a 17 per cent increase on the previous year. Four per cent of all data security incidents reported in 2015/16 related to solicitors and barristers.
