Solicitors are no exception to cybercrime. Regulations set by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) state that any data loss or breach must be reported to them immediately.  They have the power to impose fines if a firm loses data and is deemed to have not had adequate security measures in place. How do manage your Cyber Security safeguards?

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be enforced from 25 May 2018. It affects all organisations that hold personal data on EU citizens, regardless of where the organisation is based in the world. Law firms must also report data breaches to the ICO.

Consequences of a data breach can be severe. Potential fines under the GDPR range up to €20m or 4% of worldwide, annual turnover – whichever is higher.
