Regardless of specialisation, legal firms store vast quantities of sensitive data. From personally identifiable information (PII), to contract and banking details, through to witness statements, the information critical to your cases will be of interest to professional thieves.
But as hacking attacks become more sophisticated, many legal firms are struggling to stay ahead of the criminals. Organised criminal gangs are targeting legal firms to acquire vital information they can use as a springboard against other organisations like banks.
Regular penetration testing and security audits will help to protect your clients and business against these threats. By partnering with Fidus we can help you identify and manage vulnerabilities including:
• Penetration testing to reveal weaknesses in security systems.
• Security and permissions audits that uncover exploitable misconfigurations.
• Physical security assessments to check protection of your office and data centre.
• Social engineering tests to ensure your staff are ready to head of person-to-person attacks.
• Phishing email testing to check malware-infected emails are dealt with safely.
• Full red team cyberattack simulation to test how your legal would manage a co-ordinated cyberattack.
• Cyberattack response readiness check to confirm you ready to deal with all eventualities.
At the end of every test our consultants will supply you with a plain English report. In it we detail our findings and recommendations for improving IT security. And we’re always happy to help implement those suggestions.
The entire legal industry rests on trust in the relationship between attorney and client. Most of the “regulatory” work you do will be to strengthen that connection with your clients.
For those firms dealing with private citizens, there is the small matter of GDPR to deal with. The regulation gives EU citizens a raft of rights about how their data is handled and what they can expects from firms, like yours, who collect and store it.
Breaching GDPR could be a costly mistake, attracting fines of up to €20 million. Fidus can help you avoid these penalties by improving compliance. Our consultants can conduct a GDPR audit to help you understand the personal data you collect, where it is stored, and how well it is protected.
The GDPR audit can be used to build an action plan of the steps needed to achieve full compliance with the regulation. And Fidus consultants are always on hand to help you make the required changes.

Introduction Quiplash – a game full of wit, banter and borderline acceptable humour… and security consultants on a lunch break. To set the scene, the date was 19th February 2020 and the mood was cheerful in the Fidus office. Lunch had just been delivered and today was the day that Mario Kart was not going […]
