The large volumes of valuable client and commercial information held by organisations such as law firms and accountancy practices makes them a prime target for the modern cyber criminal. With large scale corporate cyber breaches hitting the headlines, these organisations are right to be concerned, but they must ensure security investments are working effectively. By choosing Redscan's cyber security for professional services, you can assess your security posture, manager resources effectively and ensure you are prepared for attack and resilient in the event of a breach.
Law firms, accountancy practices and other professional services organisations hold huge amounts of valuable data that includes client data, banking details, deal information, and sensitive commercial information.
With increasingly targeted and well-funded cyber criminals and hacktivists, many firms are unprepared to deal with the fast evolving nature of modern cyber-attacks.
The heightened awareness of the damage inflicted by breaches is increasing the pressure on firms to demonstrate robust information security policies to their clients and partners.
Recently, the Director General of MI5 indicated that law firms are especially at risk from attackers who are using them as an easy mechanism to gain access to their clients’ data rather than directly attacking that client. GCHQ has also stated that law firms are amongst the “weakest links in the data security chain”.
Proactively detect and respond to cyber breaches. This is a hassle-free, easy to deploy service that combines people, process and technology for a low cost monthly fee.
Simulate a real-world cyber-attack to identify the weaknesses an attacker could exploit, the value of data they could exfiltrate, how security investments and resources cope with a real-world attack, and improve preparedness.
Our CREST-approved, fully customisable engagements enable you to identify vulnerabilities and exposures in your infrastructure, applications, people and processes to more effectively manage your information security risk.
It is essential for firms to think about the type of information they hold and implement effective information security risk management. This requires correct governance, management and culture throughout the business. Maintaining trust in the professional relationship is also critical as a successful attack can ruin a firm’s reputation, cause financial losses, compromise intellectual property, and result in litigation.
Redscan can help you to enhance your information security posture. Our solutions help you to exercise a high standard of care that shows reasonable efforts have been taken to protect sensitive client information.
