Understanding website hacking and how to protect your practice

2 October 2018

The Law Society has worked in partnership with website security specialists, SharkGate, to create an exclusive report.

Mitigating cybersecurity threats has never been more crucial. Hackers are evolving, and new data breaches and releases of ransomware are occurring at an ever-increasing rate. It is estimated that by 2021 the global cost of cybersecurity related issues could be £6 trillion per year.

The report examines:

  • potential vulnerabilities of websites
  • types of hacks
  • signs that a site has been hacked and the impact
  • practical ways in which to reduce the likelihood of, and to mitigate, attacks
