SRA Risk Outlook 20/21 Live Webinar


Every year since 2013 the SRA have released their Risk Outlook looking at their views on the key risks and challenges the profession faces. It give advice on what steps to take to protect you and your firm from these risks.  It is one of the most popular resources on the SRA website.

It has been a challenging year for the profession and the risks law firms face are always changing.  An example of this would be that many of us have spent most of this year working from home.  Cybercrime reports to the National Crime Agency (NCA) rose 400% in the first few weeks of lockdown as the criminals tried to take advantage of people working from home.
