Robust Cyber Security is No Longer an Option

Cyber crime is now a big threat to the financial stability and reputation of your firm.

It’s no longer an option to stand by and hope for the best, every legal practice must ensure they are properly protecting client information and have robust security measures in place to prevent data breaches.

This is a requirement under the SRA Code of Conduct as well as the Data Protection Act.

Opportunities and Threats from GDPR

The new General Data Protection Regulations mean that from May 2018, legal firms must also drastically improve their data privacy and protection policies or face potentially huge fines.

13593328-0-Compliance-1

These new regulations are a significant change to Data Protection law. They’ll strengthen individual’s rights, increase compliance obligations and significantly increase the maximum fines that authorities can levy.

Firms that can’t demonstrate they’re compliant, will be dealt with harshly with breach notification costs and regulatory fines likely to be business ending events for most law firms.

Whereas firms that can show they’ve taken reasonable steps to meet the requirements are likely to be viewed favorably by regulators in the event of a breach or compliance issues.

Plus, you’ll be able to demonstrate to clients that their data is properly protected and that you’re compliant with GDPR ahead of the crowd.
