VBS’s continuing training keeps personnel informed about cybersecurity threats and best practices. The new education program explains how to recognize and avoid ransomware, phishing, and other forms of social engineering attacks, as well as how to respond to security breaches – measures that are increasingly important for law firms in today’s cyber-threat environment.
Statistics Canada claims that cyberattacks have risen significantly since the pandemic’s onset. Over 40% of companies in one study reported at least one online security issue, from malware to phishing to outright cyber fraud. Law firms are especially vulnerable because of their duty to ensure appropriate collection, processing, and storage of confidential data. If they are hacked, they risk financial and reputational damage.
Furthermore, a widely cited IBM study found that in 95 percent of all security breaches, human error was a key contributor. The VBS Cybersecurity Awareness Training provides clients’ staff with effective and ongoing coaching that not only reduces these risks but also helps them comply with GDPR, HIPAA, and other industry standards.
Weekly mini-security training videos, a monthly security newsletter, continuous phishing and dark web monitoring, and an Employee Vulnerability Assessment are capped by annual reviews and exams that minimize employee-induced errors.
This service complements VBS’s other legal-specific offerings such as VOIP and billing integration, which enables voice, team chat, and video on a single platform while tracking billable hours via smart integration.
VBS IT Services takes the time to understand their clients’ business, then tailors IT solutions to individual companies’ goals and budgetary needs. CEO Miguel Ribeiro says, “VBS specializes in a wide range of award-winning managed IT services, and we are committed to customizing the most cost-effective IT solutions available for every client”.
One reviewer commented: “We switched to VBS because of their professionalism. I wanted a company that could help us get to the next stage of our business and from the beginning they followed through with what they said they would do and more.”
