Lawyer Checker and Legal Ombudsman joins forces to help reduce cybercrime

Also, West Midlands Police Cyber Crime Unit reported that £11 million of client money was compromised last year. While the FCA believes that there are at least 1400 organised crime gangs targeting law firms.

Key Relationship Executive, Tom Lyes from Lawyer Checker will be joined by Joshua Jackson from Legal Ombudsman.

The aim of the webinar is to provide practical, jargon free advice for small to large firms about how they can protect themselves from fraud and cybercrime and what to do if the worse happens and they encounter a cyber attack.
