Law firms become increasingly vulnerable to cybersecurity threats and data breaches as they handle increasing volumes of sensitive digital information.

Cyber Security in the Legal Sector

Financial gain is a significant motivator for a cyber-attack, and with the AU legal market worth $23 billion, it is no surprise that cybercriminals are interested in law companies.

KEY QUESTIONS

Key security questions for legal leaders

COMPLIANCE

Cyber security compliance in the legal industry

COVID-19 has compelled not just the law, but also the majority of the global industry, to shift to remote employment wherever practicable. While this has allowed businesses to continue running, it has also severely fractured enterprise cybersecurity systems and created abundant opportunity for internet scammers, who are taking advantage of uncertainty.

This abrupt transition has exposed the legal industry, placing large risk on compliance as well as data and intellectual property security.

Gridware can assist you in enhancing your data and information security to the degree required to comply with local and international compliance requirements.
