Cyber Essentials Certification

Cyber Essentials.

Like most businesses, law firms are increasingly reliant on IT and technology to deliver their services, and are falling victim to a range of malicious cyber activities.

In the last year, 60% of law firms reported an information security incident - an increase of almost 20% from the previous 12 months - whilst the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) reported that over £11m of client money was stolen due to cyber crime in 2016-17.

As part of our ongoing commitment to data security and protection, we have been assessed and awarded the Cyber Essentials certificate.

Cyber Attacks exploit weaknesses in IT systems and software. Dudman Shaw, t/a Rundlewalker Solicitors are proud to have a Certificate of Compliance with the Cyber Essentials scheme, as meeting the Cyber Essentials implementation profile [BIS/14/696]. This scheme provides assurance that our Information and Communications Technology (ICT) defences have been assessed as satisfactory against commodity based cyber attack. We monitor and reassess these regularly.
