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.
The SRA reported that in 2016-17, over £11 million of client money was stolen due to cybercrime. In 2017-18, 60% of law firms reported an information security incident - almost a 20% increse from the previous 12 months.
It's clear that the cyber threat to the UK legal sector is significant and growing.
