Library launches new cyber-security guide

The Law Society Library has launched a new subject guide on cyber-security.

Recognising that the issue is a growing problem for solicitors, the guide brings together resources that will help them to develop an understanding of the basics of cyber-security.

The guide highlights library resources available to support solicitors in practice and brings together other Law Society guidance on cyber-security, as well as external resources – including legislation and Government policies.

Solicitors and trainees can use the guide as a starting point for researching law and policy on cyber-security, with books and e-books available on cyber-security law and practice, cyber-security in relation to privacy and data-protection law in the EU, and cyber-crime.

Policies and guidance

Links are provided to relevant Irish and EU legislation – including the EU’s Cybersecurity Act and Digital Operational Resilience Act.

The ‘policy and guidance’ section gives an overview of cyber-security policies at a European level, Government policy documents, and links to relevant guidance documents available from the Law Society.

Further resources of interest from the library collection include books and e-books on understanding the fundamentals of cyber-security, related topics such as blockchain and legal tech, and a list of journal-article abstracts on cyber-security with a focus on the legal profession.

The library launched Law Society Subject Guides last year, to highlight subject-specific resources and information in the different areas of law.
