Securing IT systems and data is a huge challenge for all businesses, particularly those involved in large financial transactions, and recent ransomware attacks have highlighted the importance of having robust security mechanisms in place to prevent and manage risks. In this session we will explore types of attacks on systems, the consequences of failure to protect and what steps conveyancers can take to minimise the risks, including:

  • Unpacking the scams – what are they and what damage can they do:
    • ransomware

    • phishing emails leading to the release of sensitive and confidential information
    • hacking and manipulation of databases
    • release of viruses and malware
  • The legal, reputational, social and financial consequences of cyber attacks on conveyancers
  • Essential steps for securing your network, including managing external access
  • The potential impact of BYO devices on your network and how to manage them
