Conveyancers are prime targets for cybercriminals due to the nature of their work and the high-value transactions they handle. Here’s why they’re particularly vulnerable:

1.      High-Value Transactions: Conveyancers deal with property transactions, which involve significant sums of money. Transfer fees alone can range from 3% to 13% of the property’s value. This makes conveyancers appealing targets for cybercriminals who seek to intercept these transactions and redirect funds to their own accounts.

2.     Trusted Communication Channels: Conveyancers rely heavily on email communication to coordinate with clients, other professionals involved in transactions, such as real estate agents and banks, and government authorities. Cybercriminals exploit this reliance by impersonating conveyancers through fraudulent emails, tricking recipients into diverting payments or providing sensitive information.

3.     Sensitive Client Information: Conveyancers handle a wealth of confidential data, including financial records, identity documents, and property details. This information is a goldmine for cybercriminals looking to commit identity theft, financial fraud, or other illicit activities. Breaching a conveyancer’s email system provides hackers with access to a treasure trove of sensitive data they can exploit for malicious purposes.

4.     Limited Cybersecurity Awareness: While conveyancers are experts in property law and transactions, they may not have the same level of expertise in cybersecurity. This knowledge gap makes them more susceptible to phishing attacks, malware infections, and other cyber threats. Cybercriminals capitalize on this vulnerability by employing sophisticated tactics to deceive conveyancers and gain unauthorized access to their email accounts.

5.     Urgency and Time Sensitivity: Property transactions often have strict deadlines and time-sensitive requirements. Cybercriminals exploit the sense of urgency inherent in these transactions to pressure conveyancers into making hasty decisions or bypassing security protocols. This increases the likelihood of falling victim to email scams or inadvertently compromising sensitive information.

In summary, conveyancers are targeted by cybercriminals due to the lucrative nature of property transactions, the reliance on email communication, the abundance of sensitive data they handle, limited cybersecurity awareness, and the urgency associated with their work. Implementing robust email security measures, such as Sendmarc’s DMARC technology, is essential for safeguarding conveyancers against cyber threats and protecting the integrity of their transactions.
