Law Firms and Cyber-attack Conference 2016: Prevent Detect Defend

Cybercrime is a national scale problem that requires immediate action


With the 2015 Information Security Breaches Survey estimating that 90% of corporations having experienced a cyber security breach in the last year, cybercrime is a national scale problem that requires immediate action. Cybercrime costs the UK around £27 billion every year and although some government action has been taken to stem this financial haemorrhage, it remains a growing threat. Law firms are particularly vulnerable to this criminal activity, as they often deal with the kind of sensitive information targeted by fraudsters.
