The importance of cyber security for legal firms

Cyber attacks make up 75% of all reported crimes in the UK. These figures are from the Solicitors Regulation Authority UK, which regulates more than 125,000 solicitors nationwide.

Legal firms are subject to heavy regulation in the industry and must adhere to strict cybersecurity measures. This means that any organisation working in the legal sector must be aware of its responsibilities under existing regulations and prepared to face any new cyber threats or challenges that may arise.
