Protecting the integrity and confidentiality of information is of paramount importance to solicitors. With security breaches on the increase, law firms must ensure that their data doesn’t fall into the wrong hands.
We are proud to be the only legal technology provider to be ISO 27001:2013 certified at a company level. The ISO 27001 certification applies to our hosted IT solution dpscloud, proving that this provides its users with the necessary levels of control including data encryption, advanced virus protection, patch management and access control. More than 140 legal businesses have opted for this solution.
We maintain our own data centre, thus helping our clients to comply with the definitive data location requirements of the Solicitors Regulation Authority. dpscloud’s stringent data protection rules and procedures allow law firms that want to apply for Cyber Insurance to meet the scrupulous criteria of their insurers and also to obtain a lower premium.
Attacks are predominantly software-related. Being one of the longest standing legal software providers on the market as well as a hosting provider, DPS have the necessary expertise to cover any existing gaps between the hardware and the software. In this way, DPS safeguards a firms’ data from increasingly sophisticated cyber-attacks.
ISO 27001 is an internationally recognised best practice framework for an information security system. In order to be awarded this accreditation, we undertook a three day audit by the BSI who evaluated our data handling procedures.
DPS also provide one-day audits to law firms who want to undertake a risk assessment themselves to ensure that they are taking all the necessary precautionary measures to prevent online data theft. More information is available here.
