Legal practices are changing. The increased use of technology and evolving forms of data storage and communication present new forms of business risk. Cyber crime is at the forefront of these risks with the annual cost to the UK estimated at £27 billion.

Away from the hype, cyber crime is impacting legal practices globally and locally. It presents challenges to how law firms run their business with criminals seeking to access your data, your client information and your business critical services.

In this session, Cybercrime & Security Experts will examine the following:

  • Why cyber crime is an issue for your practice;
  • What constitutes cyber crime, using examples that are relevant locally;
  • The business impact of cyber crime in real terms;
  • Practical and immediate steps that you can implement, to protect your clients, your business and your reputation.

This session will be delivered by Siobhan Gallagher, who leads PwC's Belfast based Cyber Risk team.
