Cyber security protections should be the number one priority for legal, accounting or financial services firms in Perth. With ransomware, hacks, attacks, vulnerabilities and data theft affecting professional services firms and businesses all around the world on a daily basis, it’s just a matter of time before your legal, accounting or financial services practice is hit. My Info Tech Partner's goal is to provide you with the best cyber security protection possible, while also keeping your unique needs and budget in mind.

Hacks & Attacks

These days, hackers, attackers, nation state actors and even automated web bots are all trying to gain access to your network and ultimately access your private client or customer and practice information. When successful, the attackers can lock down your data or worse they can release your client or customer information to the world.

With the sheer number of security threats faced by firms, it is important to evaluate the vulnerabilities that may affect your legal, accounting or financial services firm. Lost revenues due to downtime or large fines due to data breaches may not be an option and could affect the overall health of the organisation, potentially ending in bankruptcy for the firms equity principals, partners or directors and lost jobs for the firms employees.

Stats show that 60 percent of small businesses that suffer a cyber attack, are out of business within 6 months of the attack. According to Deloitte, 90 percent of costs from a cyber attack occurring beneath the surface, and it takes up to 5 years after the attack to fully recover, naturally, it’s easy to see how this happens.

Further with the IBM and Ponemon Institute Cost of Data Breach study in 2020, the average cost of a cyber attack is US $1,520,000. In a real world example that we are aware of, an organisation suffered a ransomware attack that found all the copies of their backups and deleted them. This organisation was then forced to pay a ransom, of US $250,000, just to get their data back. Obviously, and it goes without saying, this was just the start of the costs to the organisation. Once they were operational again, they calculated the business they lost due to the ransomware attack, was over US $4,400,000 in sales.

I think we can all agree, that’s a lot of money, isn’t it. Would it be inconsiderate to ask, do you think your firm could survive that kind of loss?

Internal Threats

Not only is it necessary to protect your firm from outside threats but internal threats can also be a huge vulnerability. Part of a thorough cyber security plan is ensuring that employees are using best practices and are educated on their role in keeping themselves, the firm and its clients safe.

Compliance

If you store customer data, private information, or take credit cards, cyber security is no longer an option, but instead is a necessity. Not to mention the Australian Privacy Act, Notifiable Data Breach Scheme amendments or any other regulations, you need a team that understands these requirements and a team that can provide the pieces necessary to keep you compliant.
