As the security of confidential information moves to the fore and compliance with regulation becomes more complex, it’s important for the profession to know that it is doing all it can to comply.

Oyez is currently conducting a comprehensive survey, the first of its kind, to attempt to gain an understanding of how law firms are protecting the information they handle and how they are adapting to the new SRA Code of Conduct and forthcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation.

Your opinion counts and taking part takes just a few minutes. If you are responsible for Information Security and would like to take part, click here today to take the survey. As a “thank you”, all respondents will get a free “COLP E-Guide” on Information Security and a copy of the completed and anonymised report on publication in July 2012.

If you would like more information on data security, Oyez are offering a free white paper on the subject. Click here to download your copy 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.
