Legal Ombudsman guidance on complaints and cybercrime

The Legal Ombudsman (LeO) has published guidance that lays out what they expect from service providers who have been the victim of a cybercrime attack.

LeO recognises that the steps you take to protect your firm and your clients will differ depending on the risks you have assessed, your needs and the size of your firm. This document provides some basic guidance on what you need to consider and how they will treat complaints regarding cybercrime that come to us.
