Lunch Event for Solicitors
Time & Location
About the Event
Are you a solicitor or barrister?
Have you heard about the recent targeting of barristers and solicitors’ firms by cyber criminals?
In the first half of 2020 firms reported £2.5m had been stolen by cybercriminals, more than three times the amount reported in the same period of 2019, and phishing scams increased 300% in the first two months of lock down according to the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA).
Not only does the theft of client data represent a vital breach in confidence and reputation, but it can have a massive effect on the financial position of firms as well, with a recent cyber incident at Gately wiping almost 8% off the share price within in one hour and the cost of recovery increasing every year, reinforcing that prevention is definitely preferable to dealing with the aftermath.
Come and join the Eastern Cyber Resilience Centre and the Chelmsford Business Partnership as we discuss the recent trends and what businesses, and individuals, can do to mitigate cyber-attacks.
We will be looking at the fundamentals of cyber resilience as well as the consequences for data protection and some practical tips that you can implement.
We will be holding a Q&A session so email us if you have any questions about cyber resilience that you would like answered.
