Protecting your business from Cyber crime
The benefits of e-conveyancing are well documented. However, with these benefits come significant risk. In the past 24 months, our clients reported hacking as the most commonly encountered security threat, followed by malware attacks and email interception.
A recent flash poll on our website emphasised that security is becoming a higher priority for practitioners. 30% stated they were ‘extremely concerned’ about it, and 50% saying they plan to implement new security measures in the next 12 months.
Reported research found that one in three law firms aren’t investing in regular cyber security training. The research also showed that while 79% of legal professionals are concerned about cyber security, just 21% have confidence that their firm would be able to handle a cyber-attack. The reality is that conveyancers fast track to e-conveyancing and e-settlement, they must be cyber vigilant to protect their clients, their firm and their reputation.
To assist you to transition to your digital future safely, InfoTrack has sourced best practice preventive measures from some of the country’s leading authorities.
