2024 Cyber Security for the Bar

Cyber Security for the Bar

Designed to highlight cyber security risks facing barristers and chambers staff and how each can do their part to safeguard against the rising number of threats.

Cyber-attacks are a growing risk for barristers and chambers, with multiple publicised attacks occurring in the past 12 months alone. The  effects of these attacks are multi-faceted, from taking entire sets offline for days, impacting barristers’ ability to represent clients, to incurring ICO and BSB investigations and impacting the reputations of chambers.

Chambers’ cyber security efforts are only as strong as the weakest link and a lack of cyber training and awareness among barristers and staff leaves sets exposed to cyber-attacks and potentially catastrophic losses.

Our team of in-house barristers has extensive experience of advising sets which have suffered data breaches and have used this unique insight into creating a cyber security module designed specifically for barristers and chambers' employees.

As part of our response to the risk of cyber-attacks for barristers, we include free access to this Cyber Security module for all subscribers to the Briefed GDPR Certification for Barristers.

What Our Clients Say

"Useful course, served as a reminder of things already known as well as things not known. The content is a real test of what should be considered and that people should never take their eye off the ball, this is a daily challenge not just an annual one through training like this."
