Davis Kessler, head of cyber at Travelers Europe, introduces the Cyber security section
Law firms are a regular target for cyber attacks, because they hold sensitive client information and handle large volumes of money.
So how can Law Firm Ambition help you?
Start with Peter Wright's checklist Cyber attack – lessons for law firms from a veteran, which highlights the key points that busy managing partners need to understand.
Peter is managing director of Digital Law and author of the Law Society Cyber Security Toolkit, so he is worth listening to.
Next, read Peter's full set of FAQs, covering the most important — and the most common — questions that he is asked when running seminars on cyber security for law firms.
Then, if you want to delve into the detail and get a fuller understanding of the risks that your firm faces and the steps that you can take to protect yourself, listen to Webinar: Cyber security for the modern law firm (44 mins). This is a recorded webinar by Peter and fellow cyber expert Craig D'Abreo from the US.
Finally, there are two easy-to-read items that may be suitable for passing to colleagues who do not need to know so much detail. Cyber fraud – is your law firm prepared?, by Darren Cable of Lloyds Bank shares useful knowledge that the bank has picked up. And our Travelers guide Power of Attorney — How law firms can strengthen their cyber security, was written by myself and my fellow CyberRisk Underwriter colleague Lisa Farr.
