I would like to point readers towards the new law section of the Guardian’s website, which launched last week, not least because I have a weekly column that will usually be published on Tuesdays. See www.guardian.co.uk/law; for my articles in particular, see www.guardian.co.uk/profile/neil-rose.

Also, last week I had an article on professional indemnity insurance published in the law section of The Times. Click here.

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.
