Lupton Fawcett takes the lead in Cyber Security for the third year in a row.
Yorkshire-based law firm Lupton Fawcett LLP, with offices in Leeds, Sheffield and York, has once again been re-accredited with Cyber Essentials Plus status for the third year running.
As part of the assessment, the firm’s ICT infrastructure systems, in addition to the policies and procedures surrounding them from both a technical and end-user perspective, were put to the test. Following a week-long extensive scrutiny by an independent assessor, XyOne Cyber Security, we are proud to announce that once again we have shown that we are committed to going above and beyond the prescribed requirements in order to keep our own and, more importantly, our client’s data in safe hands.
James Hood, the Firm’s Head of ICT commented: “Lupton Fawcett is amongst a select few in the Country to hold this accreditation. Cyber-crime and our resilience to it are at the forefront of our thinking - all the time. For me the two real, tangible benefits of subscribing to the Cyber Essentials scheme are:
- The Lupton Fawcett ICT team remain vigilant and are alive to any and all data security threats.
- Our accreditation provides reassurance to our clients and others that deal with us that we take the security of data extremely seriously and that we have objective proof that we have considered the essential cyber security threats. I am very proud that we have, once again proven that we can live up to the expected standard when it comes to protecting data and can say with full confidence to all of our clients and contacts that all electronic information is in very safe and very capable hands."
In addition to the Cyber Essentials Plus assessment, a further, external penetration test that goes beyond the required standard was conducted to complement the exercise which again, yielded very positive results.
