Cyber security

Cyber-attacks no longer stop at your email perimeter. Cyber criminals have become more advanced in their tactics through blended spear-phishing, business email compromise attacks and brand impersonation. Cyber security is vital in law firms and legal departments due to the nature of the work and compliance requirements. You need a security strategy that is proactive and robust. Mimecast protects your firm at your perimeter, inside your network and organisation, and beyond your perimeter.

Understanding key issues

CHALLENGES

Phishing and ransomware

With cyber-attacks on the rise, all organisations are at risk of becoming a target. Not only do cyber criminals use malicious URLs to phish for credentials and take over employee accounts, they also deliver ransomware via email attachments.

Business email compromise

By compromising official and trusted email accounts, cyber criminals are able to use impersonation tactics to convince employees to wire money to fraudulent accounts or release sensitive information.

Human error

Human error is involved in over 90 per cent of all security breaches. Even with a robust email security perimeter in place, if your employees aren’t ready for a cyber-attack, then your firm isn’t either.

Risk of disruption

Interrupted email flow can be detrimental to a business. Firms have to be vigilant in eliminating the risk of disruption from planned or unplanned email downtime.

Slow recovery

In the unfortunate event that a cyber-attack is successful, data can be lost and it can take months to recover missing data. There is also the risk of financial or reputational damage.

Risk of internal threats

Not all threats are external. Firms need to be aware of, and prevent, the spread of malware internally, and externally to clients.
