IS YOUR FIRM A PLATFORM FOR GROWTH, OR A DRAIN TO THROW MONEY DOWN?

GARY JONES

PROTECTING CLIENT DATA FROM CYBERCRIME

TUESDAY | 12.00 SYMPHONY LEGAL THEATRE 5 Many firms focus on chasing new clients and top-line growth. However, real, easy, profitable, and cash-laden growth is under their noses. There’s no point chasing new business if you aren’t making the most of existing business and existing clients.

As 25% of law firms report being targeted by cyber criminals, it’s vital for firms to understand the risks. Gary will discuss how real the risk of cybercrime is, cutting through the jargon to explain malware, phishing, DDoS, modified email, ransomware, and more. Gary will provide an informative guide to your IT security, and the tools to keep your business and your clients’ data safe. TUESDAY | 14.00 THE SECURITY THEATRE 2

BETTER LAW FIRM KPIS - ACTIONABLE INFORMATION BEYOND FEES AND TIME TUESDAY | 14.00 THE PRACTICE MANAGEMENT THEATRE 8

ALSO SPEAKING ON: WEDNESDAY AT 11.00 - THE PRACTICE MANAGEMENT THEATRE 8

Your firm probably has KPIs – fees billed, time recorded – but do these really drive action to improve your business?

Graham’s talk will challenge the status quo of law firm management information today.

HAYLEY TURNER

THE NEW ERA OF CYBER-THREATS: THE SHIFT TO SELFLEARNING, SELFDEFENDING NETWORKS Self-learning and self-defending systems are now being deployed to continually assess business environments. Known as ‘immune system’ defence, this approach is used to uncover threats that have already penetrated the network border, and then automatically fight back. Unlike legacy approaches, which rely on rules or signatures, these technologies work autonomously, enable the security team to focus on high-value tasks, and can counter even fast-moving, automated attackers.

Law firms are prone to data leaks and are big targets for cybercrime. So why is it that many don’t have a strategy in place to protect their information, have functionality and a cost driven IT infrastructure that isn’t robust enough to defend attacks and have policies that tick boxes but little else? Jezz will discuss the challenges and lessons learned from several firms he has worked with to help you navigate a similar journey.

CONTINUING COMPETENCE: THE NEW CPD

Since the 1st of November 2016, solicitors no longer need to count CPD hours. Instead, the SRA has put in place a new process which makes sure that solicitors continue to provide a high standard of service to their clients.

AS A SOLICITOR... You are expected to undertake regular learning and development so your skills and knowledge remain up to date. You will need to:

1 REFLECT...

2 ACQUIRE...

3 ASSESS...

...on your practice to identify the learning areas you need to address

... new skills and knowledge that address your learning needs

... how your new skills and knowledge address your learning needs and how they can be integrated into your practice

4 RECORD...

5 MAKE AN ANNUAL DECLARATION...

... how you have carried out this process

... that shows that you have addressed your learning needs and acquired new skills and knowledge

FOR MORE INFO VISIT WWW.SRA.ORG.UK/ TOOLKIT OR VISIT THE SRA ON STAND L244

DO YOU RENEW YOUR FIRM’S PRACTISING CERTIFICATES? You are responsible for ensuring a high standard of service to your clients. This includes making sure that solicitors maintain and demonstrate a level of competence appropriate to their work. You are entitled to submit colleagues’ declarations on their behalf. This means that your firm can continue to use the bulk renewal form if preferred. You can find more information on the continuing competence toolkit on www.SRA.org.uk/toolkit or visit the SRA on stand L244.

34


Legalex 2017 offers over 120 expert-led, informative seminars and engaging and interactive masterclasses that can help you towards achieving the learning and development needs you have identified.

Excellence through experience

Providing IT support to law firms across the UK for over 28 years With a proven track record of shaping technology to help law firms achieve more, we can deliver the service and flexibility practices of any size need to keep pace with the changing IT environment. Organisations need to look at IT differently and find a range of services that can be fine-tuned to meet their unique needs. Contracts should reflect what the firm needs, not what the service provider wants to sell. Think it’s time to look at your IT differently? Then please get in touch and see how Quiss can help.

Will IT be more of the same in 2017?

Security threats remain...

Although 2016 had its moments, a few trends are likely to create sleepless nights in 2017, some from excitement and some from dread.

Linked to the growth of mobility and cloud computing, keeping data not only safe from theft, but safe from being held to ransom or blackmail (doxing) will become an increasing problem. We will see a rise in ransomware attacks as criminals become more sophisticated and recognise the money to be made simply by leaving data where it is, but denying the owner access to it. Problems will extend beyond the workplace, hoping to target remote workers with Internet of Things (IoT) enabled attacks, using Internet worked devices that collect and exchange data, as a route into secure systems. Organisations will seek the assurance of governance technology, which dictates where and for how long data is kept and who can access it. The ability to encrypt data when it is stored and when it is moved, whilst imposing multi-factor identification, will also be crucial in the fight to keep information secure.

E5263_QU_LeagalEx_Showguide HP Landscape Advert_P2_AW.indd 1

Head in the Cloud There is no doubt cloud technology is causing significant change to almost all organisations, with increasing migration as the benefits of service elasticity become more apparent. There is now no need to ensure your IT infrastructure is scaled to meet maximum demand, which you rarely reach. Migration to cloud services like Microsoft Azure allow organisations to use what they need and only pay for what they use – saving resources and money. The introduction of Microsoft data centres here in the UK will help allay the fears of those who worry about where data is stored. Keeping data within the jurisdiction of England and Wales will undoubtedly give cloud services a boost in the legal sector in 2017. Again, the working environment continues to change, with more people operating outside normal office hours and indeed the office, as they work from home, out on the road, or just remotely from anywhere. It is this approach that will ensure even greater acceptance of cloud services in 2017.

11/01/2017 12:54

Apps breakthrough year... Everyone is going mobile and the new mantra finding traction is, ‘work is something we do, not somewhere we go’. We already use apps every day for social networking, banking, travelling, etc., but the focus has now shifted to the ability to access your data everywhere. And apps are being designed that don’t just allow access to your data, but offer virtual personal assistants, which will make mundane repetitive work tasks easier. The new breed of intelligent apps will cover everything from security to enterprise applications, with artificial intelligence-enabled capabilities at their core. App production will concentrate on advanced data analytics, autonomous business processes, and more engaging and conversational interfaces, all of which will heavily feature artificial intelligence.


A brief look at areas worth paying attention to this year that we didn’t get around to include blockchain, machine learning, web-scale IT, and host of other topics that will cause a stir this year.

A gift

MAcmilLaN

Is a gift F r

EveryonE

Most of your clients will want to leave something in their will for the people who matter to them – to look after them in years to come. A gift in their will to Macmillan could do just that. Your client could help make sure that if anyone they care about is affected by cancer, they will have a Macmillan team in their corner. Someone to help them tell their family after diagnosis. Or pay the bills. Or cope with side effects during chemo. Someone to help them with going back to work. Their gift will help make sure that no one has to go through cancer alone.

For more information please call us on 0800 107 4448 www.macmillan.org.uk/solicitors leavealegacy@macmillan.org.uk

If your client is including Macmillan in their will, here are our details: Macmillan Cancer Support 89 Albert Embankment, London SE1 7UQ Registered charity in England and Wales (261017), Scotland (SC039907) and the Isle of Man (604). MAC16616
