Webinar: How to protect your firm from a cyber attack

Webinar: How to protect your firm from a cyber attack

Not even a month into 2021 and already it has been a busy start to the year for law firms. This coupled with the new working from home culture unfortunately elevates the risk of law firms being subject to a cyber attack.

In 2019, almost 50% of businesses in the UK suffered a cyber attack reported the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

Looking after the security of your firm has probably never weighed more heavily on your mind. To effectively mitigate against cyber risk, five key points need to be considered:

  • Who has access to your company’s data and services?
  • How can you protect your firm from viruses and malware?
  • What are the most effective ways to keep your devices and software up to date?
  • How secure are the settings for your firm’s multiple devices?
  • How can firewall protection shield from risk?

To look at these key points, Tom Lyes Key Relationship Manager at Lawyer Checker will be hosting a live webinar on Wednesday 10th February at 12noon. You can register to join our free session HERE.

Here you’ll learn more about Cyber Essentials, what it is and how it can best facilitate your IT and Security resources. We’ll outline the benefits of this government-backed accreditation and discuss how it can not only add a further layer to your in-house security measures but also enhance your firm’s credibility and reputation, show compliance to regulators and ensure any outsourced IT relationships are secure.
