Cyber Security for Law Firms: What should I be doing?

Event Date: 
11 April 2017
Macquarie Bank Conference Room
Ground Floor, 235 St Georges Terrace

The recent passing of the Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act 2016 increased public scrutiny, and ever increasing demands from clients who expect you to protect their and their client’s data, are all part of the wake-up call.

"73% of all law firms report that they had suffered a security incident this year.The most common incidents reported in our survey 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 threats do clearly arise from outside the organisation, 41% of all law firms also report that they have suffered incidents as a result of their own staff." PWC Legal Survey 2016
