The fast-moving world of IT is very different to that of Law, which of course is based on time-proven precedents, statutes and doctrines. For the legal firm though, IT is often a “necessary evil” in keeping up with the ever-increasing demands of legislation and compliance.
The advent of GDPR in the UK, brought an entirely new focus to the issue of IT Security and the rights of the individual to know what data is being stored, and that it is being stored securely and respectfully.
Nemark were preparing for GDPR before the guidelines were even defined, and such preparations used the “Cyber Essentials” Certification as a rock solid platform, a basis if you will, upon which the final GDPR compliances could be built.
Cyber Essentials Certification (https://www.cyberessentials.ncsc.gov.uk/) focuses on security, control and protection for your IT. It used to be a “nice to have” alongside GDPR but now, the all-important Lexcel Accreditation v6.1 is set to demand it from 1st November, 2018.
