Business Development Manager Kevin Bishop adds: “We pride ourselves on the personal service we offer and it’s extremely important for us to be positioned as an integral part of the wider legal conversation. We very much look forward to attending and sponsoring a range of events this year and to continuing to work with firms large and small to generate business solutions that really work for them.”

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.
