Murray Hills Solicitors are delighted to have achieved the Cyber Essentials accreditation across all three of our offices, providing our clients with a greater confidence in Murray Hills ability to reduce the risk of cyber threats.
Cyber essentials is a government backed industry supported scheme to help protect against cyber-attacks.
In this modern age it is ever more important that we do everything possible to mitigate the risk from internet based threats and at Murray Hills Solicitors we aim to do all we can to protect our clients.
With cyber-attacks seeming to be at the forefront of the news lately everyone is aware of the threat, but unfortunately law firms are particularly attractive to criminals as they hold a great source of information. With statistics showing that nearly half of businesses reported a cyber breach or attack in the past 12 months and cyber-attacks on UK Law firms climbed by nearly 20% between 2014-2015 and 2015-2016.
Here at Murray Hills Solicitors we are different to most law firms, we are proud of our traditional values and friendly personal approach, but also understand the necessity for technology and modern methods. We constantly provide our staff with training and up to date information delivering the best knowledge possible to serve and protect our clients, but we know the risks are ever greater in today’s world and as such took the decision to become Cyber Essential accredited. The digital world can help us move your transaction along at a quicker pace and assist in making it as stress free as possible, Murray Hills respect the information you provide us with and we do all that we can to protect it, we take cyber security very seriously and know the effects of cyber-attacks can range from disruption in daily working life to major criminal activity. We worked closely with our IT support network lead by Jupiter IT Solutions Hull, and are very happy to announce that we have been accredited with Cyber Essentials and have the privilege of displaying the badge alongside our other recognised accreditations including Lexcel and CQS.
Managing director Keith Murray said
“Obtaining the Cyber Essentials accreditation displays our commitment to cyber security, not only are Murray Hills a friendly, community driven Solicitors but we are also clued in when it comes to protecting our clients from these contemporary threats”
Following in the footsteps of the likes of BT, Virgin and Canon UK, Murray Hills hopes that the Cyber Essentials badge will show clients that we are passionate about cyber security and have the tools in place to back this up.
