Essential security for Lupton Fawcett
Lupton Fawcett has been accredited with the Government-backed Cyber Essential Plus Certificate of Compliance.
The firm, it believes, is the first in Yorkshire and one of only 20+ law firms UK-wide to receive this accreditation.
‘Cyber Essentials’ is a scheme consisting of a set of basic controls which are designed to protect against the most prevalent of cyber security threats.
Commenting on the accreditation, Richard Marshall, Managing Director says: “Cyber-crime and our resilience to it has been at the forefront of our thinking for some time. The legal sector is particularly vulnerable with over 173 law firms (July, 2015) having been exposed to a range of cyber-related incidents. Through 'Cyber Essentials Plus' accreditation, we are able to offer our clients and others that deal with us reassurance through objective proof that we have considered the essential cyber security threats. However, we will not rest on our laurels. We remain vigilant to the ever evolving threats that businesses are continually faced with and our clients can be assured and confident that we are looking out for them”.
