OneSearch Direct, the UK’s largest local search data company, has partnered with Lawyer Checker in offering a FREE webinar to help solicitors protect their firm against 80% of common cyber attacks, through a government backed accreditation scheme, Cyber Essentials.

Taking place on Tuesday 4th June at 11am, the webinar will provide practical solutions to comply with Requirement 6.2 of the CQS Core Practice Management Standards, which states: “Practices must have an information management and security policy, which should be accredited against Cyber Essentials”.

Designed to help your firm improve defences and publicly demonstrate your commitment to cyber security, Cyber Essentials covers five key areas of vulnerability:

  • Having secure internet connection
  • Having secure devices and software
  • Having control over who has access to your data and services
  • Having your business protected from viruses and other malware
  • Having your devices and software safely up to date

Lidia Quinlan, Head of Sales, OneSearch Direct explains: “With high-profile breaches from the likes of Facebook, Cambridge Analytica, and Dixons Carphone fresh in the minds of the general public, there are growing concerns about sensitive information becoming compromised. When it comes to one of the biggest financial decisions of your customers’ lives, they need to feel reassured that you take IT security seriously, and can shield them from cyber attacks.

“Not only does Cyber Essentials help safeguard your firm against the most common cyber threats, it protects your firm’s reputation and reinforces your commitment to fight against cyber criminals who are blighting our industry. The ability to get certified within only two days creates peace of mind for all stakeholders, and helps your firm achieve excellence in compliance. This webinar is a must for all involved in conveyancing.”

Tom Lyes, Key Relationship Manager, Lawyer Checker comments: “This highly practical session will discuss the risks associated with the transmission of funds, email modification fraud and other relevant threats which cause concern for law firms. Although the thrust of the discussion is around conveyancing, there is a very real risk in other departments where there is any transmission of funds; like the execution of a will, the award of compensation or claims, etc. This will link closely to the recent changes in CQS for 2019.”

The 1-hour webinar will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. To register for FREE, click here.

My membership site changed my life – could it change yours?

One day I had a lightbulb moment. “Why don’t I set up a website with basic information for people which they pay to access? The fees would pay for the site and my time.” That thought changed my life.
