In the digital age, all organisations are exposed to cyber threats. Lawyers are playing an increasingly critical role in advising clients on this subject, as well as acting to protect their own practice against cyber threats.

Cyber risk is not just a technology issue – it is a whole of business risk. Digital transformation throughout all sectors of the economy means most businesses are now digital businesses, and every kind of business can now be impacted by cyber breaches. The serious harm these attacks can cause businesses, customers, and third parties mean that some businesses are unable to survive a serious cyber event. 

This course aims to support lawyers in navigating cyber threats to strengthen cyber resilience in businesses. It is more than just protecting data – navigating cyber threats is about safeguarding the future operations of a business, the trust of customers, and market reputation. Understanding these key cyber risks and their impacts will equip you to effectively advise clients on these risks – as well as to ensure you understand and uphold your own obligations to protect confidential client information.
