Laker Legal Attains Cyber Essentials Accreditation

Laker Legal Solicitors are delighted to have been awarded the Cyber Essentials Accreditation, which is a Government-backed award which demonstrates that Laker Legal Solicitors take cyber security very seriously.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which comes into force in May 2018 calls for companies to take greater care in protecting and respecting the personal data of clients, partners and employees.

Sam Chadwick, Head of IT at Laker Legal says,

“Our encrypted email system has been working well for some time now and we felt that the next step would be gaining the Cyber Essentials Accreditation

The Cyber Essentials scheme has grown a lot since its first launch in 2014.

According to the UK Government, 80% of cyber attacks could be prevented if organisations put simple cyber security controls in place.

Having been awarded this Accreditation, we feel it shows the commitment that we make to our clients, staff and third parties to protect all their personal information against common online cyber threats.”
