All businesses are at risk of cyber attacks but did you know that 65% of law firms in the UK have been a victim of a cyber incident in 2022 alone?

Law firms are often attractive targets for cyber criminals, due to the large volume of confidential and sensitive information they handle on a daily basis. Building a stable foundation of cyber security knowledge and techniques to follow and implement is a great way to create a safer environment for your data.

Cyber Essentials is a certification first developed in 2014 by the National Cyber Security Centre as a requirement for all public and private sector organisations who do business with the Nuclear, Health, Education and Defence sectors. A set of foundation level technical controls across 5 major areas, the certification has been designed to protect against the most common online security threats faced by UK businesses.
