Mitigating the cyber risk within the Legal sector

We held a brilliant webinar with presentations from Chris, a business Advisory from the National Cyber Security

Centre, Detective Sergeant Mark Stratford from Norfolk and Suffolk's Cyber Investigation team, John Greenwood, Norfolk and Suffolk Police's Cyber Security Advisor and our own Head of Cyber and Innovation DI Fiona Bail.

During the presentation we learnt about:

  • the current threats/trends and why we focussed on the legal sector

  • Focus on ransomware, business email compromise and phishing

  • The national and local resources available

  • Mini Exercise In a Box - Ransomware

  • Ransomware from a Cyber Investigators view point

  • Victim Voice - recording describing a ransomware threat that a real law firm faced

  • Reflection on the victim voice
