Riliance is pleased to announce that it is sponsoring The Law Society Excellence in Diversity & Inclusion Award and will be presenting the winner with their accolade at a glittering awards ceremony being held in London on 22 October 2013.

The Excellence Awards is the most prestigious event in the legal calendar, offering a chance to network with law’s brightest stars and celebrate a year of outstanding achievements.

Riliance was invited to sponsor the award following the release of its free to use online Diversity Survey module, which allows firms to survey their employees and report data back to the Solicitors Regulation Authority as part of the annual required diversity survey of the legal profession.

Riliance now has over 1,200 firms using the survey system, ranging from the very smallest to global and top 20 firms, giving over 68,000 employees the ability to complete the survey; many of these firms are also members of the Law Society’s Diversity and Inclusion Charter and the survey system allows them to report data as part of the Charter requirements.

The Diversity Survey module now forms part of the range of compliance software solutions offered by Riliance and more products are due to be released in 2014. Version 2 of the core  Riliance risk and compliance system is due to be released in November 2013 and will offer users enhanced task management and reporting tools as well as a fresher looking interface.

Mark Gidge, CEO at Riliance said: “We are delighted to be able to support this award and it is testament to the hard work and commitment of the legal profession as a whole to commit to diversity and inclusion within the workforce, by providing the legal community with a free  survey tool we have made it easier for firms to collect, collate and report this data to the SRA  and we have removed issues surrounding privacy by ensuring that the responses are anonymous and only the aggregated data is visible”

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.
