Cybercrime risk to professional firms

Read our ground-breaking research on the Dark Web

Crowe’s latest research on the Dark Web found discussions and attempts to market services and products, intended to defraud or perpetrate cybercrime against well-known UK businesses including professional firms. The implications for professional firms are stark.

As an example, law firms are a key target for cybercriminals. In the last year over 60% of law firms experienced a cybercrime attack, a rate that has almost doubled in four years. 

The implications of cyber attacks are significant; stolen client funds, breach of sensitive information and a loss of trust between a firm and its clients.
