CPD Hours: 1


NEW FOR 2022! This 1 hour webinar is presented by Trevor Hellawell and provides an essential and useful update.

This course is essential for anyone who is working in the legal environment and who interacts with the internet – so, all of us, then. In the recent climate of Covid lockdowns and homeworking we have all needed to have our wits about us in the battle against the scammers and fraudsters. The fact that Covid restrictions have eased does not mean we can let our vigilant guard slip. ‘Trust no-one’ is not a great recommendation for client care but taking five to ask ourselves ‘could I be being scammed here?’ is always good advice. This webinar will discuss the common types of cybercrime and fraud steps we might encounter and how best to overcome them.
