Peppermint Technology, the legal technology innovator, has been made a finalist in two categories of the UK IT Industry Awards 2014. These prestigious awards are the benchmark for outstanding performance throughout the UK computer industry and are supported by Computing and BCS (The Chartered Institute for IT).

The awards focus on the contribution of individuals, projects, organisations and technologies that have excelled in the use, development and deployment of IT in the past 12 months. They attract entries from some of the UK’s leading businesses including Virgin Media, MBNA, EE, Lloyds Banking, John Lewis and Centrica. Alongside these household names Peppermint has been shortlisted for small supplier of the year in the organisational excellence group and, in the technology innovation group, for cloud provider innovation of the year.

Peppermint’s founder and CEO Arlene Adams commented:

“It’s amazing that a young and relatively small business like Peppermint is sitting alongside such huge British industrial heavyweights. Having our achievements recognised on a national scale, across all business sectors, shows that Peppermint is truly punching above its weight in the UK IT industry.”

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.
