One Response to “Further reading”

  1. I have read that with the implementation of the LSA, this will place the UK in the vanguard to promote global change in the legal services sector through the introduction of alternative business structures (ABS).

    As we know each jurisdiction has its own regulators and operating requirements for its legal practitioners.

    What is the general view on this? Or does the prospect flatter to deceive?

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.
