Cybercrime is a fast-growing and widespread crime, with cybercriminals targeting law firms for the money and information they hold. The large amounts of money changing hands in conveyancing transactions makes them an obvious target, and the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) reported in 2017 that around half of all law firm cybercrime involved conveyancing.
This brand-new 30-minute e-learning course is designed to raise awareness of key cybercrime threats in relation to conveyancing transactions and to outline practical steps that lawyers and their staff can take to stay safe and secure online. It includes the latest guidance from the Law Society and the SRA.
The course covers:
- Types of cybercrime
- Spotting potential threats
- Steps you can take to protect yourself and your firm
- Mitigating the risks of working outside the office
- Password security
The course includes interactive activities and short animations, designed to illustrate key points and make these more memorable. When you have worked through the course materials, you will have the opportunity to take a short quiz to check your recall and understanding.
By completing this course, you will learn how to:
- Recognise the importance of good cybersecurity for lawyers and staff
- Identify the most common types of cybercrime in a conveyancing context
- Take practical steps to reduce the risk of falling victim to cybercrime
- Respond appropriately to suspicious events.
