(SOS) returns to the Legal IT Show next week with a positive view of the state of the legal services market.

The leading software supplier to mid-sized firms is promoting its ‘Law Firm Success’ campaign. This focuses on sharing real-life insights and providing practical advice on the steps members of the SOS community have taken to prepare for the impact of alternative business structures (ABSs), especially in harnessing IT to reach their business goals.

The show takes place on 6-7 March at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London. SOS will be at stand 52.

SOS managing director David McNamara said: “The SOS stand is set to be a hub of interaction, ideas and innovation to help determined legal businesses succeed in the post-ABS legal landscape. There has been much scaremongering about how traditional firms will survive in the future; however, SOS aims to stimulate a more positive tone to this business critical conversation.”

The SOS stand will feature four demonstration pods to help legal businesses discover how SOS can help them to succeed in the ABS era. SOS has solutions for a broad range of legal businesses – including ABSs – with both SOS Connect and Virtual Practices on display.

Delegates can see SOS’s latest CRM, case management and web functionality, which enables organisations to deliver a more seamless and efficient client experience. Visitors can also collect a free copy of the SOS ABS white paper, which addresses how law firms can succeed in the new legal era.

Along with insights from innovative SOS clients, this includes expert articles on the impact of ABS, risk and compliance management, and the changing role of IT in legal businesses.

Visitors will also be encouraged, by a prize draw, to take part in a brief ‘State-of-the-sector’ survey. The survey results will be added to the unique content on SOS’s law firm success resource portal. Participants will be asked to share tips and insights, and highlight their biggest challenges in relation to legal IT, thereby adding to this growing bank of knowledge and know-how.

GDPR and the rise of ‘datanapping’ – the new threat to the pockets of law firms

Nigel Wright

You’ve heard about ransomware – a hacker infiltrates your IT systems, locking them down until you pay a ransom. Some studies now estimate that over 50% of businesses have experienced this type of attack in the last year, and it’s particularly prevalent within the legal sector. Previously, firms could protect themselves by having a solid disaster recovery plan in place to ensure they can get back up and running in the event of a disruption. However, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – the new EU-wide regime which comes in effect on 25 May 2018, irrespective of Brexit – means that this approach alone is no longer adequate and security measures must be strengthened to prevent attacks.
