Legal Futures Associate Jures, a research company and think-tank dedicated to the legal services market, has been commissioned by a leading legal publishing company to undertake a survey amongst small law firms (five partners or fewer) aimed at identifying the main survival issues affecting high street practices.

Jures would be most grateful if solicitors would take part in this survey, which should take no more than five minutes to complete and is available here.

All responses to the survey shall be treated in the strictest confidence. As an incentive for completing the survey, Jures is offering respondents a free webinar worth 2 CPD points. If you are interested in taking-up this offer, please e-mail Grania@jures.co.uk separately and once you have completed the online survey.

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.

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.
