Within the legal sector, reliable IT infrastructure, cyber security including Cyber Essentials and proactive support are essential for ensuring that legal professionals can work efficiently in the office or remotely and sensitive customer data is safe from the risk of a breach.
With years of experience working with companies in this sector, we offer a range of tailored IT solutions to ensure systems meet the unique needs of these businesses.
IT Challenges for the Legal Sector
Cybersecurity – Given the confidential nature of the data they process, cybersecurity is paramount for firms working within the legal sector.
SRA Compliance – Under SRA regulations, solicitors must ensure that their data is always owned by them and is processed within the UK.
Remote Working – As remote working becomes more common, legal firms are required to take extra measures to keep systems secure, provide an uninterrupted service to customers and ensure they can continue to attract new talent to the business.
Disaster Recovery – Data loss or IT system failure can result in significant reputational damage and financial loss for legal firms.
Support – In these fast paced and time sensitive environments, downtime is not an option. When things go wrong, legal firms need responsive and knowledgeable IT support to get them back up and running as soon as possible.

Legal Sector IT Support FAQs
Can you help with office relocations?
Yes, if your business is moving to a larger location due to growth, a merger or acquisition – we can help with all of your IT needs including design, hardware set up, cabling and support.
Can you help with remote working?
Yes, we can support your staff to work efficiently regardless of their location or the devices they are using with a range of remote working solutions.
Are we at risk of a cyber attack?
The UK legal sector is seeing a significant increase in the number of reported cyber incidents reported, with a report by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) showing that 60% of law firms reported an information security incident in 2018.
Law firms are seen as easy targets to cybercriminals as they handle valuable information and don’t always have adequate IT security resources to prevent breaches.
The impact of a cyber attack can be devastating on a business in this industry, so if you don’t currently have IT security measures in place, we recommend taking action now.
