Australian Cyber Week 2020 (Oct 26 - 30) spotlights cybersecurity and encourages individuals and organisations to take an active part in building resilience against growing cyber threats by ensuring they are up-to-date with the latest cyber security strategies.

For most legal practitioners, the COVID-19 pandemic has pushed an unexpected move to exclusively digital operations and an online work environment. With that change has come new challenges for maintaining cyber security, both at an individual and firm level. LPLC has produced a series of resources and articles aimed at raising awareness of the issues and providing practical guidance on how to avoid a cyber issue.

With cyber criminals stepping up their activity, it’s always a perfect time to review your cyber security practices and protocols.
