Free Webinar On The Threat Of Cyber Crime & Fraud
Lawyer Checker are hosting a free webinar on Wednesday 15th May at 11.00am where they will cover the key changes to Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) and Lexcel accreditations which require firms to plan and control for the imminent threat of cyber crime and fraud.
If it is not already, protecting your firm from the risk of cyber attack should be top of your agenda.
According to HM Government, there are around 1400 criminal organisations who are actively targeting the legal sector at this very moment, preying on out of date or inadequate methods of defence against cyber attacks.
Why is this relevant to you?
- Changes to the CQS and Lexcel accreditations which require firms to take a more structured approach to cyber risk have come into effect from 1st May.
- There is a recognition that conveyancing fraud is on the rise as 60% of law firms reported a security incident in 2018.
- The SRA reported 237 Scam Alerts in 2018
- West Midlands Police Cyber Crime Unit has reported £11m of client money was compromised in 2018
In this short webinar, we will cover the major changes to CQS and Lexcel and provide pointers on how to ensure your firm remains compliant when audit time rolls round.
This webinar is presented by Tom Lyes, Key Client Relationship Manager at Lawyer Checker and The Practical Vision Network.
