Cyber security in Legal
As a representative in the legal sector, your reputation depends on protecting the sensitive and confidential information entrusted to you by your clients. The threat to the legal industry is considerable, and over the years, the number of incidents is on the rise.
With attacks become increasingly targeted and damaging, it’s essential to ensure you take appropriate steps to protect your organisation and its clients. The primary threat to the legal sector is from cyber criminals with a financial motive. There has also been growth in the hacktivist community targeting law firms to achieve political and economic ends.
