InfoTrack 200InfoTrack and Lawyer Checker have announced a new webinar designed to help conveyancers understand what can be done to protect themselves from fraudulent activity.

Identity theft and fraud continue to increase significantly for both the conveyancer and law firms. Subsequently, it is imperative for law firms to protect their firm using the necessary tools available.

The webinar will be run on either of the following two dates and it is free for any legal professional to register and join:

Chris Harris, managing director at Lawyer Checker comments “Service providers like InfoTrack provide us with a great platform to educate and inform conveyancers directly about fraud and the subsequent risks that threaten law firms. These webinars will provide much needed insight into the various types of fraud and what conveyancers can do to protect themselves.”

Adam Bullion, general manager of marketing at InfoTrack, adds “Conveyancers need to know as much about fraud as possible as criminals are devising ever more devious schemes to target funds.

“We’re delighted to be introducing these webinars as we believe they will help evolve conveyancers understanding of the subjects they care about. In the New Year, we’ll be introducing even more webinars on a variety of relevant topics.”

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
