BLM one of three top 50 law firms to have most stringent form of website security

23 Oct 2018

BLM has been named as one of three law firms that has the most stringent form of website security across the top 50.

While the majority of law firms today have practices dedicated to cyber security, not all of them have websites that are secure, according to new findings published by Trustify which claims that over 10 per cent of the top 200 law firms in the UK do not have secure websites, including four of the top 25 law firms.

The findings go on to show that eight of the top 50 do not have secure website and all have download or logins that Trustify claims could be exploited by hackers.

The data has been released to coincide with the rollout of a new Chrome by Google, which said it would not recognise security certificates issued by Symantec (owner of virus software Norton) before 2016. Websites have had to replace their certificate if they want to retain their secure status and refer traffic to a safe https website.
