The frequency of ransomware attacks has risen substantially in recent years. In an age where remote working is mainstream, ensuring one’s firm or business is protected is more critical than ever before.
On this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Clyde & Co partners Reece Corbett Wilkins and John Moran to discuss the volume of professional services businesses being hit by cyber attacks and why, how law firms are faring, new environmental factors giving rise to such attacks, what constitutes preparedness for attacks and whether businesses are better prepared since bolstering tech capabilities since the onset of COVID-19.
The trio also discuss new solutions and strategies for businesses and lawyers to implement as the market looks to the post-pandemic new normal, the need for “prosilience”, the headline legal issues in the face of so many cyber attacks and evolving political and legislative frameworks to manage.
