The large volume of highly valuable commercial information such as client records, banking details, contracts and legal records held by law firms makes these and other professional services organisations a prime target for cybercriminals.
As attacks become increasingly targeted and well-funded, many firms within the professional services sector can struggle to suitably defend themselves. Law firms, for instance, are often seen as a weak link in the security chain, as adversaries seek to use them as a conduit to gain highly personal, business critical or commercially sensitive information about their clients.
Common cyber security challenges in the professional services industry:
• Understanding what data is stored and how vulnerable it is
• Protecting highly distributed IT infrastructure
• Achieving compliance with the GDPR and other legal standards
• Maintaining client confidentiality
• Meeting the data security and policy requirements of clients
• Overcoming a lack of in-house security skills and resources
Security questions organisations in professional services should be asking:
To achieve compliance with the GDPR and DPA 2018 it is essential that law firms and barristers’ chambers have suitable technical and organisational measures in place to ensure that personal data is protected against unauthorised processing, accidental loss and destruction. Another important requirement is the need to have robust procedures in place to detect and investigate personal data breaches as well as report them within 72 hours to the relevant authority and, in high-risk cases, to affected individuals.
