November 2017

Through our incident response work, we’ve seen a growing number of cyber incidents and network intrusions at law firms and other professional service consultancies. This trend has now also manifested itself in multiple high-profile public events such as the exposure of the Panama papers from the files of a large, off-shore law firm and the recent successful intrusion into the private data of a member of the Big Four accounting firms. These incidents demonstrate the concerted targeting of the professional services industry.

This advisory covers:

  • Culture factors driving cyber risk

  • Recommendations for Lawyers and Firms

  • Conducting Cybersecurity Assessments

  • Adopting Cybersecurity Best Practices
