Throughout the financial year 2019/2020 we had carried out a survey of a select group of solicitors’ practices and barristers’ chambers and, in this comprehensive report, we present the results together with the latest advice from our experts on building in cyber resilience to your legal business.

- the commercially confidential information they hold on corporate clients.
