Red Lion Chambers has an experienced team of silks and barristers, who have a specialist understanding of cyber-crime cases. Boasting strength in depth, we defend and prosecute in all areas of financial, commercial and cyber-crime.
With our expert knowledge of national security cases, we can advise individuals, companies and organisations on their data protection obligations, cyber protection policies and compliance measures.
Our members have invaluable expertise handling cases in this increasingly complex and fast changing area of law. Additionally, our ability to both defend and prosecute provides for an enhanced perspective to clients involved in such cases.
In recent years, the number of cyber-related cases has grown significantly. We have specialist counsel on hand to provide representation for both the defence and prosecution. Our members are equally adept at handling highly complex cyber cases with technically demanding evidence.
What is cyber-crime?
Cyber-crime is a complex and evolving area of crime that includes identify theft, computer fraud, email phishing scams, online defamation, hacking, and illegal fire sharing.
Cyber-crime is a national security threat. Such breaches can have a potentially devastating impact on a company’s finances and reputation. Cyber-attacks can leave a company vulnerable to litigation or regulatory investigations if their personal data is compromised.
Chambers have a wealth of experience overseeing investigations and prosecutions involving file sharing cases and hacking incidents involving the “dark web” that include:
- Financial and reputational loss
- Computer hacking
- Theft and sale of credit and debit card information
- Denial of Service (DDoS) attack
- Computer Misuse Act 1990
We recognise the importance of safeguarding client confidentiality and guarding against security breaches. We also understand the importance of protecting against financial, reputational risk caused by cyber-attacks.
Our members can advise and represent clients on a variety of complex internal and external cyber threats, including hacker infiltration; disgruntled employees misusing company and staff data; and sensitive emails being inadvertently sent to the wrong recipient.
We can offer a comprehensive legal service to our clients, through every stage of a case, from advice to trial.
