In a world where data is more valuable than oil, it’s clear why legal services are a primary target for cybercriminals and fraudsters. According to a government report, 60% of UK law firms reported an information security incident in 2017, up dramatically from 42% in 2014, accounting for a total loss of £11m in client money.
With those numbers only increasing, it’s crucial that cybersecurity training forms a vital part of your planning.
There are several factors that make law firms and other legal services an attractive target for cyber attacks.
From their handling of sensitive data, management of significant funds and their positioning as a critical cog in commercial and business transactions, it’s little surprise they’re so routinely targeted.
Unfortunately, traditional hardware and software solutions to reduce breaches fail to address the 90% of breaches that occur as a result of human error, requiring an approach that foregrounds empowering staff.

Our NCSC-certified cybersecurity and compliance courses are built to positively change behaviours, achieving a risk reduction of 74%. Coupled with the in-depth quarterly and annual reporting to demonstrate ROI, built-in policy management and more, Bob’s Business is ideally suited to organisations within the legal services sector.
