LexisNexis has announced two additions to its Cordery Compliance Service: Cordery Consulting Services and Compliance Healthcheck.

The additions are set against a backdrop of increased regulation in the legal services delivery, including new outcomes-focused regulation and requirements for appointed COLPs and COFAs.

The Compliance Healthcheck is a simple and effective way for solicitors to find out whether they need to do anything more to comply with regulatory rules. By filling in a smart questionnaire and returning it to Cordery Compliance, solicitors will receive a written report within 14 days to help them understand their firm’s compliance strengths and weaknesses and exactly what they need to do to be compliant.

Robert Sanderson, LexisNexis UK compliance spokesperson, said: “Cordery Consulting Service and Compliance Healthcheck offer a cost-effective solution for solicitors to check that they are on the right side of the rules. The launch of these two new services is part of the LexisNexis suite of compliance services. We know that not all solicitors have prepared for the new rules, and we have responded by bringing these new services to the legal market.”

Cordery Consulting Services provide face to face expert support to solicitors across England and Wales to help them comply with the SRA Handbook.

GDPR and the rise of ‘datanapping’ – the new threat to the pockets of law firms

Nigel Wright

You’ve heard about ransomware – a hacker infiltrates your IT systems, locking them down until you pay a ransom. Some studies now estimate that over 50% of businesses have experienced this type of attack in the last year, and it’s particularly prevalent within the legal sector. Previously, firms could protect themselves by having a solid disaster recovery plan in place to ensure they can get back up and running in the event of a disruption. However, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – the new EU-wide regime which comes in effect on 25 May 2018, irrespective of Brexit – means that this approach alone is no longer adequate and security measures must be strengthened to prevent attacks.
