Linetime – HMCTS secure data transfer

Print This Post

4 December 2014


Linetime are pleased to announce the successful roll out of the new HMCTS SDT interface. Linetime customers who have progressively migrated to the new system are now actively processing thousands of claims, judgments and warrants per week.

The system includes comprehensive auditing, submission control and a unique multi branch option to handle multiple customer ID’s.

The secure data transfer is a secure system to enable customers to upload and transfer data files directly to the HM Courts & Tribunals Service systems. The new system replaces the current CJSM email solution and is available to all customers wishing to issue bulk civil claims and those who currently use the claim production centre in Northampton.

The facility allows digital payment via direct debit with monthly or weekly invoicing and the ability to track the progress of a case on-line in real time. Users can also retrieve and review defences on-line and apply to set aside or vary the judgments. Court fees are significantly cheaper than issuing via paper – on average 18% less and payment by direct debit avoids the cost of preparing and presenting cheques. In addition, the real time access to case progress will reduce the need to contact the court’s call centres.

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
