Cybercrime and fraud 2023
Recorded on: 13/01/2023
Post-pandemic working practices have left the legal profession open to fraud and cybercrime like never before. At the same time as the fraudsters’ techniques get more sophisticated, increased working from home has raised exposure. Much has been done by law firms over the last few years to tighten up systems, procedures and approaches, but more can still be done.
What steps should a firm have in place to ensure that it is not susceptible to attack, especially as working practices adapt? How should lawyers remain alert to fraudsters who pretend to be people they are not?
Both fee-earning and support staff would benefit from this webinar which will consider:
- An outline of the main frauds and scams
- Post-pandemic risks
- Recent fines and other errors
- Working from home and other risks
- GDPR implications
- Crypto-currency implications
- What to do if you fall victim
