Course Overview

Cyber crime features quite regularly in the news, often related to the release of personal data, but apart from the mention of 'hackers' there is usually little to no information regarding how the hackers accessed the data.

This issue is of critical importance to the legal profession with the SRA stating that ‘cyber crime is a priority risk for us and for law firms, and the problem is increasing.’
