Apparently no-one is safe from identity theft! Hackers have impersonated the head of the UK's fight against cyber crime

Our Alpha Legal team spotted this fascinating - and worrying - article relating to Lindy Cameron, the Head of the UK's National Cyber Security Centre:

Lindy Cameron, the Head of the National Cyber Security Centre

Hackers posing as Lindy Cameron tried to steal £5m in a phishing scam but her NCSC organisation had managed to prevent any funds from being transferred.

Alpha Legal, and similar secure portals, help to reduce the risk of phishing scams because they encourage legal businesses to move away from email and, instead, to use secure methods to communicate with clients.
