Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed scheme that helps organisations to protect themselves against a wide range of common cyber-attacks. This is the fifth year that Lupton Fawcett has held the accreditation.
Lupton Fawcett’s latest audit was conducted in June, at a time when many team members were working remotely due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
James Hood, Head of IT at Lupton Fawcett, said: “I am thrilled with this accreditation, which is a huge achievement for the firm and shows that we are a safe pair of hands for data and other confidential information.
“We have demonstrated that regardless of when, where and how our people need to use our technology systems to remain productive, they can do so in a secure fashion.
“The assessor commented favourably on the robustness of our remote access facilities and associated security. He was also very complimentary about the technology we use to ring fence our data within our own environment enabling a seamless BYOD (bring your own device) experience without having to compromise.”
Cyber Essentials Plus certification provides peace of mind to clients and contacts that an organisation’s defences will protect against the vast majority of common attacks.
Lupton Fawcett delivered a strong showing in the latest Legal 500 rankings. The Leeds, Sheffield and York-based business has been ranked for the expertise of its individuals and teams in 21 practice areas, putting it in the top five legal firms in Yorkshire and the Humber.
