Cyber Essentials for law firms

Back to all services

Cyber Essentials Certification

With the Law Society now recommending that all law firms become Cyber Essentials accredited if they want to apply for the Lexcel legal practice quality mark, now is the ideal time to assess the cybersecurity of your legal practice.

Cyber Essentials is a UK Government backed scheme which helps to guard against up to 88% of cyberattacks. In order to achieve accreditation, a firm must prove that it is compliant in 5 key areas:

  • Firewall
  • Security Configuration
  • User Access Controls
  • Malware Protection
  • Patch Management

LP Networks are an accredited Cyber Essentials Accreditation Body and are able to not only assist in helping law firms complete the required paperwork for certification but can also provide services that support their application. These include:

  • Assessing your system to pinpoint gaps in your defences
  • Creating and implementing a managed security plan
  • Ensuring that patch management is up to date
  • Providing bespoke User Awareness Training

Aside from the benefit of being able to sign up to Lexcel, Cyber Essentials Certification provides a number of additional perks for law firms. It provides clients with the peace of mind that their sensitive information and money are safe, ensures GDPR compliance, and can open doors to larger commercial clients and government and local authority contracts.
