Recent research has shown that in the last two years, cyber attacks have affected more than one in four Australian firms. Cyber hackers, scammers and criminals continue to create and evolve methods of infiltration and attack, and law firms and their data are prime targets for theft, breaches and hacking.
While all firms need to be aware of, and train their staff about the risks posed by cloud computing, metadata, social media and other IT platforms and technologies used by them, the cost of such training seems to be viewed as too costly in the short term.
