UK government to give lawyers & accountants free cyber security training
"The legal and accountancy sectors are to be offered access to a free, online IT security training course to help members of these professions learn how to avoid cyber attacks.
It is also hoped the government-backed initiative will enable lawyers and accountants to advise their clients on cyber security best practice.
The course's launch was announced in a speech by digital economy minister Ed Vaizey last week at the Law Society in London.
In a statement, he said the sensitive data the legal and accountancy sectors handle makes them a prime target for cyber attacks.
Therefore, it’s vitally important that people working in these industries are clued-up on cyber security issues.”
