Legal Futures Associates SIFA and 360 Legal Group will be holding a series of roadshows around the UK during January and February 2012.

The roadshows will look at the importance of management systems and controls as not only the key to compliance with Outcomes Focused Regulation but also deliving competitive advantage in the post-Legal Services Act environment. Quality accreditations are not the whole answer and COLP and COFA bear only part of the responsibility. Firms also need to set about differentiating their client proposition. Sessions will discuss:

  • The opportunities and implications for your firm of the arrival of private equity in the legal marketplace
  • The practicalities of Outcomes Focused Regulation and the role of COLP and COFA
  • Business models for the future and the role of the trusted adviser

The roadshows are accredited for 2 hours of Law Society CPD and cost £50 (incl VAT) per delegate. For full details of the programme, venue and dates download the brochure:  SIFA roadshows. To book visit www.sifa-centre.info

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.
