There are several factors which make legal and professional firms an attractive target for cyber attacks.

They hold large amounts of sensitive client information, handle significant funds, and are often a key enabler in commercial and business transactions.

Cyber criminals will exploit weaknesses in lending and conveyancing systems to gain illegitimate advantage in the UK property market, potentially resulting in the loss of thousands of pounds for the organisations concerned.

The most prevalent cyber crime within the legal sector is Friday afternoon fraud, so named because conveyancing deals often go through at that time. Criminals hack into law firms' systems when transactions are awaiting completion and alter email correspondence between clients and solicitors so that funds are redirected. Businesses can be liable even if they were not aware of or complicit in the fraud.

Cyber Security Services for Legal and Professional

  • Network Access Control: Using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a good way of sharing data securely between different branches, clients or remote-working employees, while Network Segmentation can be implemented to separate the different levels of access, making it harder to access the most sensitive information.
  • Post Attack Recovery: Our post-attack recovery services can help to mitigate the danger in case of an attack. Coordinated, vigorous responses to incidents will limit lost time, money, reputation and the costs of recovery.
  • Firewall Protection: Network Armour can help to prevent some of the most common cyber attacks, including social engineering. Phishing emails are becoming increasingly difficult to detect by sight alone, but our advanced firewall solutions and email filters will do the hard work for you.
  • Secure Online Backup: Storing confidential information in the cloud can seem risky, but it doesn't need to be. Our cloud-based backup solutions give you confidence in storing even the most sensitive data remotely.

For law firms, the biggest danger is a security breach, which can be extremely damaging for clients and the firm's reputation alike. The consequences can be major and many businesses never recover. You need to protect yourself before your company goes the same way.

By partnering with Network Armour, you can take the first step to data security and peace of mind. We can help you to prepare for a cyber attack, or to mitigate the damage if it has already happened.
