Cybercrime has dominated the headlines recently with the WannaCry ransomware causing global healthcare, telecommunications, and banking services, among other businesses, to grind to a halt. With security experts still picking through the fallout, law firms and others will be on high alert for follow-up attacks. ‘Friday afternoon fraud’, or phishing, is one such intrusion which is becoming much more commonplace and sophisticated.
