The cyber landscape is becoming increasingly complex and keeping pace with the evolution of cyber threats is becoming challenging for law firms. This was evident in this year's Law Firm Benchmarking results which found that nearly half of all participants rated fraud and cybercrime as a business critical risk to their firm.
The fraud and cybercrime vulnerabilities in the legal sector report has been developed by Crowe, KYND and University of Portsmouth’s Centre for Counter Fraud Studies. It reveals that the vast majority of the top 200 law firms have significant unaddressed cyber risks setting a concerning precedent for all UK law firms and highlights the need for firms to take action to protect against cyber-attacks.
