The legal sector is at significant and growing risk of cybercrime, cyber attacks and scams, partly because of the sensitive data and significant monies held by law firms.
The SRA reported that in 2016/17, over £11m of client money was stolen due to cybercrime. In 2017/18, 60% of law firms reported an information security incident - almost a 20% increase from the previous 12 months.
These pages bring together guidance and support from the Law Society and external organisations to help firms understand and mitigate cybersecurity threats.
