Legal Industry Threat Landscape
80% of firms are running at least one service with a well-known vulnerability that could be exploited by hackers. (University of Portsmouth)
73% of the top 100 law firms in the UK were targetted by attacks in 2016. (PwC)
The average cost of a data breach in 2020 is $3.8 million. (IBM)
The nature of the data that law firms hold, from client information to intellectual property, make them a popular target for hackers and malicious actors.
However, when firms wish to share and collaborate with external stakeholders they are forced to use a number of standalone, proprietary communication tools (eg USB’s, email, fax, popular file sharing, messaging and video conferencing tools) that may compromise the integrity and security of private and sensitive information being shared internally and externally.
Many popular collaboration tools such as file sharing, digital signatures and video conferencing were simply ignored as there previously had not been a sufficiently secure solution. As a result, productivity has suffered and law firms have lagged behind the curve in digitising workflows.
Our clients in the legal industry are typically seeking solutions that not only improve their cyber security but also enable them to communicate and collaborate easily in an increasingly digital industry.
Hackers and Malicous Actors
Medical data and records are amongst the most valued data on the dark web, making healthcare a significant target for hackers and malicious actors.
The Trusted Insider
The rate of attacks coming from within organisations is increasing. Organised crime and other malicious actors often pay insiders to take data or provide outsiders access to internal systems.
Human error accounts for between 40-90% of all data breaches. Manual and legacy systems like fax, USB, couriers and email tend to have a greater propensity for human error.
Dekko comprises four powerful communication tools on one, ultra-secure, web-based platform that is secure by design.
File sharing and storage
Document approval and digital signatures
Email and chat
All data on the platform is end-to-end encrypted which means your data is NEVER decrypted on its journey to the end-user (unlike all other forms of encryption). So even in the case of a data breach, your data will be rendered unreadable and unusable to hackers.
The platform is easy to use and access, with no need to download software. Plus since it's managed cloud service it greatly reduces IT administration.
Our experience in the legal industry means that we understand your needs, for example, Dekko's comprehensive audit trails guarantees non-repudiation and chain of custody by logging all interactions with the platform.

Users can effortlessly share and collaborate with colleagues and an unlimited number of external stakeholders in total security.
