PROTECT YOUR PRACTICE from human error, online scams, attacks and fraud with Cyber Essentials Certification.

By Frank Manning, Legal Technology at Inpractice.

Cybersecurity is a critical issue facing all businesses and solicitors in particular, who are more vulnerable now with people working from home, where there is less supervision and control.

Cyber Essentials is the Government-backed scheme

 that will help your practice to minimise the risks associated with unsecure or unprotected technology. It will help to prevent your people from making the inevitable human errors that result in cyber breaches that happen very easily and often, as most of us know from experience.


works exclusively with law firms and the legal sector.

I am an experienced IT consultant, accredited by GCHQ

 to deliver Cyber Essentials. Also providing a wider range of IT support for law firms, including GDPR compliance, I can quickly get to grips with your requirements.

Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus identify the fundamental security controls that your practice should have in place now. Certification demonstrates to your clients and prospects that you have introduced sound controls to protect them, but meeting the standard is a wise move even if you do not apply for formal certification.
