Phishing awareness webinar
Lockton has recently worked with specialist cyber security expert, NCC Group, to undertake a simulated phishing exercise for law firms in Scotland. They are presenting a webinar on Tuesday 9th May, looking at the results of the simulated phsihing exercise, and highlighting some of the approaches that cyber criminals take, and how you can mitigate the risks of attacks in future.
You can access further guidance on recognising phishing emails in our Resource Centre. And look out for more guidance and training materials from Lockton on cyber security, coming soon.
If you have a specific cyber security concern, contact Calum MacLean, Lockton's Risk Manager for Professions, or your Lockton Account Executive.
