Protect your firm against cyber crime
with Cyber Risk Aware
Cyber Risk Aware exhibiting @ Stand D25
On March 10th, 2020, Cyber Risk Aware will be exhibiting at the British Legal Tech Forum, Europe’s largest legal IT conference and exhibition. Produced by Netlaw Media, the event brings together the most respected professionals from the legal and commercial technology sectors who will examine and explore the systems, strategies, processes, and platforms that will drive law firms and legal businesses into the next decade and beyond. Cyber Risk Aware is delighted to be attending the British Legal Tech Forum to help advise firms on how to secure their businesses against the ever increasing risk of cyber threats within their industry.
Legal industry – more vulnerable than most
2019 was one of the worst years on record for cyber attacks and breaches, with the legal sector continuing to top the list as one of the most vulnerable industries. In 2018, 60% of law firms reported a cyber incident, a 20% increase from the previous year, and a threat that continues to rise. The reasons why the legal sector is more vulnerable to cyber attacks are many; from the volume of data and sensitive information, financial responsibilities to authority held. Cyber criminals primarily target the legal sector for financial gain, putting firms who specialise in corporate or property law at a higher risk. Cyber criminals also target this industry to achieve political, economic or ideological goals.
Real time cyber security awareness training
The digital landscape has become increasingly hostile year on year, making it more important than ever for law firms to ensure they have a robust cyber security posture to tackle cyber threats head-on. This is where Cyber Risk Aware can help. The only company in the world to offer real time cyber security awareness training, Cyber Risk Aware’s platform leads the industry, helping companies worldwide assess the level of human cyber risk in their business. This is done by running simulated phishing attacks and cyber knowledge assessments to see where the risks lie in a business, offering training that helps the people of an organisation become the first line of defence.
Stephen Burke, CEO and founder of Cyber Risk Aware, will be attending the British Legal Tech Forum. After a career spanning over 20 years in technology and security specialising as a CISO, Stephen found that most if not all security incidents are caused by human error at all levels within an organisation, no matter how good the technical defences were. Cyber Risk Aware will be at the British Legal Tech Forum all day, at stand D25, and will be able to advise on how to secure your business against any type of cyber threat.
