Cyber crime is a hot topic for the SRA. The increasingly sophisticated way in which cyber criminals are targeting law firms and their clients means that cyber security for lawyers is now of paramount importance to the SRA, illustrated by a statement released earlier this year in which the SRA stated that ‘cyber crime is a priority risk for us and for law firms, and the problem is increasing’.
It is crucial that all practitioners within the legal sector understand and appreciate the risk which cyber crime poses to themselves, their firm and their clients. To address this issue, Datalaw have produced a selection of cyber crime training courses, all of which are accessible using any internet connected device for a period of 12-months, which make them perfect for those wishing to complete cyber crime courses online.
The connection between law firms and cyber security is detailed within the course A Practical Guide To IT Security; during this bite-size cybercrime law course Law Hound lecturer Robert ‘Bob’ Edwards will encourage viewers to use the threat posed by cyber crime as a prompt to review their law firm IT security in general. Viewers will be invited to examine their data, assess its value, the risks posed to this data and how the firm’s business culture effects IT security.
Datalaw’s cyber crime training course SRA – Cyber Crime Risks and Your Duties is crucial as it will ensure that everyone working within a legal practice, including support staff, paralegals and legal executives, understand the potential risk which cyber crime poses and their professional obligations in accordance with the advice and guidance publised by the SRA.
For guidance on the ever-increasing number of methods which cyber criminals employ to perpetrate acquisitive crimes, and for advice on what steps you can take to mitigate the risks to your business and personal data, our cyber crime security course Essentials To Keep Yourself Safe From Cyber Crime is essential.
Other cyber crime law course highlights include Cyber Enabled Economic Crimes – Legal Guidance and topical session Developments in Cyber Crime which will examine how social media platform providers currently deal with cyber bullying and online harassment, and which are likely to be of interest to criminal practitioners.
