Security has to be one of the highest priorities for all businesses but especially important for solicitors. Did you know the legal profession is one off the most targeted by fraudsters? This cannot be a surprise when you consider the sensitive data that is held and the amount of money in your client accounts. DPS cloud provide hosting services to more firms of solicitors than any other provider in the UK so clearly need to take their clients data security very seriously.
March 2017 was our 8th security audit and we passed it with flying colours.
Does Security Become Any Easier?
"Yes and no. Of course, keeping up with the standards and the tougher and tougher challenges posed by the unscrupulous is tough, however all our staff are getting used to security habits like locking their drawers, treating unsolicited emails with suspicion and locking screens when away from their desks. These are all good habits and new staff come in to this culture, it is what we do at DPS all the time, not just for an audit, so it makes it easier." - Emma Spenwyn, Information Security Manager.
The key message appears to be, “make security a habit”. This second nature approach means it is easier to maintain sure habits and audits are so much easier to deal with.
"As a software company and host, we understand how important security is to our clients. They want to know their software has been tested to the highest security standards. They want to know their hosting provider is certified to the highest possible level. This is why we insisted the audit and standard we strive for and enjoy covers every part of the company." - Osman Ismail, Managing Director.
