Responding to and preventing Hackers

Andrew Morris, Martin Maguire, Nathan Stuttard


You are the legal Ombudsman for Spearman Softman, a reputable Law firm. It has been reported to you that a serious breach of data has occurred. A solicitor’s computer has been hacked, and a file stolen containing information pertinent to a case. This was leaked to a newspaper which compromises the legal case. This file contained the name and address of the defendant, as well as biometric information. You have been tasked with carrying out an investigation into the cause of this data breach. You must explore the behavioural antecedents which contributed to the breach. To do this, you must explore the motivation and causes for the breach whether accidentally due to mistakes by an employee or on purpose if targeted deliberately by a hacker.
