Cyber Security Awareness Training ‘Highly Commended’ at British Legal Awards

The Infosec Cloud Cyber Security Awareness Training and Testing (SATT) managed service has been awarded ‘Highly Commended’ at the recent British Legal Awards. Receiving this recognition, within the the Supplier of the Year (Technology) category, is further endorsement of the effectiveness of the company’s service to stop IT End Users causing security incidents.

Organised by ‘Legal Week’, the awards were judged by an independent panel of judges comprising senior in-house lawyers, former managing and senior partners and other senior business figures.

Holding high value information and financial details, Legal Practices and Partnerships are particular targets for cyber criminals. Plus Firms have a high proportion of senior staff members who may be reluctant to follow corporate security procedures, and staff are under increasing time and workload pressures, making them even more vulnerable to today’s sophisticated cyber-attacks.

To help the legal sector protect their data, clients and reputation, and following an in-depth market evaluation, Infosec Cloud developed their own fully managed Security Awareness Training and Testing (SATT) service. The service was launched in 2014.

Today, nearly 80,000 IT End Users, across the UK, are enrolled on the Infosec Cloud SATT service. Legal customers include many of the top 200 law firms and all grade the service as ‘meets or exceeds expectations’ (quarterly satisfaction survey). The SATT service is applicable to organisations of all sizes, whether national or regional, plus the company is working with both LEXCEL assessors and Law Firm Networks.

Commenting on the awards, Infosec Cloud Managing Director, Pete Sherwood says: “This is great recognition for the service we have developed and the value it is providing to the Legal Sector in terms of keeping Firms and Partnerships cyber safe”.

Security awareness training is not new, however the way that it is delivered, tracked and kept front of mind by Infosec Cloud is new. The SATT service comprises both training and ongoing testing with focused remedial training. The company has invested in a dedicated SATT team that researches, builds and tracks the simulated cyber-attacks, with bespoke content created for each customer.

The SATT service is fully managed so that there are no additional time requirements for the IT team. Plus as an ‘independent’ third party, Infosec Cloud ensures all staff, regardless of seniority, are included.

    2016 Research – Cyber Attacks on Law Firms Increasing

    73% of top 100 law firms targeted in 2016

    The 2016 PwC Law Firms Survey reports that an increasing number of security incidents are being experienced across the UK legal sector. The research found that 73% of the UK top 100 law firms were the target of attacks last year.

    Although larger firms are the greatest target, all law firms are targets for cyber-crime due to the confidential information held and the large volume of client funds retained. The very nature of law firms makes them an attractive target.

    Key findings:

    *  Information security is a significant area of risk to the legal industry with 73% of all law firms reporting they had suffered from a security incident.
    *  The most common incidents relate to phishing attacks (malicious emails) and infection by viruses/malicious software, with 84% and 55% of firms respectively stating they have suffered one such incident during the past 12 months.
    *  Whilst there is an increasing threat from outsiders, 41% of all law firms report that they have suffered incidents as a result of their own staff.

    Security awareness training and and simulated, random cyber-attack testing is proven to actually change staff behaviour and build a human firewall of vigilant, empowered employees.

    Defending Law Firms from Cyber-attack Conference 10 May: Manchester

    With the 2015 Information Security Breaches Survey estimating that 90% of corporations having experienced a cyber security breach in the last year, cybercrime is a national scale problem that requires immediate action.

    Cybercrime costs the UK around £27 billion every year and although some government action has been taken to stem this financial haemorrhage, it remains a growing threat.

    Law firms are particularly vulnerable to this criminal activity, as they often deal with the kind of sensitive information targeted by fraudsters.

    For this reason, businesses must take measures to protect themselves, safeguarding their digital infrastructure with appropriate software and staff training.

    Attend the Defending Law Firms from Cyber-attack Conference, where high level speakers from government, Law and cyber security will be presenting their views on how to defend law firms from cyber-attack. Topics covered shall include the threat cybercrime poses to law firms, why law firms are particularly at risk and how law firms can protect themselves from attack.
