Lidia Quinlan, strategic partnerships and panels manager, OneSearch Direct, comments:

“Today’s conference is particularly important, as it seeks to tackle real problem areas in the industry. Not only is there a segment dedicated to avoiding negligence traps, there will also be an abundance of practical advice on how best to deal with those unfortunate occasions when property transactions go wrong. This is something every seasoned conveyancer has experience of, and we all understand the importance of remediating as quickly as possible.

“We’re delighted to be a part of this event, as it ties in with our own values for mitigating risk and securing a best practice approach to all that we do. There are many ways OneSearch Direct can assist law firms in achieving compliance and success in 2016, and we look forward to exploring this further today.”

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.
