What can you do to protect your business from data protection breaches? You can start by getting in touch with a cyber security specialist. A good cyber security software should protect your systems against the theft of passwords, identity and sensitive data. You don’t need to be running a business in order to protect your name, your reputation and your finances. But failure to get adequate protection for your business and ultimately for your clients, could come at a great cost.
We specialise in law, not in cyber security but we are very much aware of the vulnerabilities that expose us to cybercrime. In particular, we have an excellent understanding of the implications of data protection breaches. Think ‘financial protection’, ‘reputation protection’ and ‘privacy protection’. Can you really afford to overlook even one of these three aspects of your business? You wouldn’t overlook any of these in your personal life, so you certainly wouldn’t make any exceptions in your business.
Law firms shrewdly put cyber security at the top of their agenda because their client base depend on it. Included in this high priority agenda item, is a security audit by qualified cyber security professionals. They run a report on their computers and website, ensuring that systems are configured to meet the firm’s needs. Also, they ascertain that malware protection is in good working order, and that only approved personnel have access to sensitive data. Client information must be kept safe at all times.
Hackers are only interested in money. There are exceptions, of course. Some hackers are interested in compromising data and specific information but generally, hackers want money. Any amount will do, and it is very difficult sometimes to recover money lost. In the context of cyber security, vulnerabilities lie in the privileged access employees, directors and CEOs have to data and bank details. The biggest threat to cyber security is the executive team, followed by the company employees.
Why do criminals target the legal sector? Because hackers think of law firms as banks, directly linked to client accounts, company accounts and conveyancing money. Conveyancing alone has an annual cash value of £300 billion. At DG Law we regularly take appropriate measures to protect our clients’ data as well as our accounts with client moneys. All our staff are GDPR trained so as to respect and protect personal identifiable information.
