City law firms in London have been placed on red alert for cyber-attacks. According to recent warnings, City firms may be targeted due to the ongoing situation in Ukraine. And, with such high-profile disruption and lucrative ransoms tempting attackers, law firms may become a new favourite aim. Law firms are also soft targets due to the incredibly sensitive client data stored on their servers. If a breach were to occur, not only would law firms fall foul of GDPR and data protection laws, but could also breach client-attorney privilege. A recent attack on the Ince Group, a London-based law firm, saw the beginning of the difficulties City firms could face if the predicted attacks do occur.
