The link between data protection and information security

The size of your business and the industry that your business is within are not factors that cybercriminal use to specifically target businesses for cyber-attacks. However, as a law firm you handle sensitive customer data and regularly process large financial payments which does make you more of an appealing target.


In 2020, the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) published the following report, Cyber Security – A thematic review. One of the focus areas in the report was cyber security training and the link between having basic knowledge of cyber security and mitigation against cyber-attacks.


In this interview with David Campbell from DPA/OK, we discuss how the link between data protection and information security is so critical within the legal and financial sector.
