Phishing attacks: Defending your legal organisation

Phishing affects everyone but the Legal Sector is more attractive for cyber criminals due to the nature of the business, indeed the 32nd annual PwC Annual Law Firms’ Survey 2023 revealed that 85 per cent of the UK’s Top 100 firms are extremely, or somewhat, concerned about cyber threats.

Reputation is critical to the business of law, which makes legal practices attractive targets for extortion. The Legal Sector is additionally more vulnerable because of the amount of highly sensitive information businesses carry, as well as the large volumes of money they can be dealing with. This makes organisations in the sector especially targeted by phishing attacks.

It’s the Christmas 2023 advert round-up time!

While it’s not illegal to use a web traffic generator it’s something that businesses who want to protect their brand should shy away from.

Web traffic bots are computer programs that can be launched on a network to artificially create traffic on websites and social media. They’ve become more prominent in recent years, but web traffic generators first appeared in the mid 2000s.

What is Phishing?

One of the easiest ways attackers can access your system is through the use of phishing scams and it’s something you need to monitor.

Essentially, phishing is when attackers attempt to trick users into “doing the wrong thing”.

This can take the form of encouraging them to click a “bad link” that downloads malware to their device, or by directing them to a dodgy website, or through trying to gain information for later scams or fraudulent attacks.
