In a world where cyber-attacks are becoming increasingly common, Wards Solicitors has taken decisive action to robustly protect its critical information technology systems and the sensitive data held on them.
For the last year, Wards Solicitors has been working towards achieving the government approved Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation to demonstrate it has external audits and the procedures in place to prevent the most common cyber-attacks on its IT network.
The first stage was a self-assessment process followed up by a full external check-up by an independent auditor designed to highlight any vulnerability and establish that all basic protections are in place and running effectively.
Wards Solicitors’ Managing Partner, David Sheridan, says: “I am delighted that we have now been awarded this accreditation and will be seeking to retain this to ensure continued security of our systems.”
Wards Solicitors continues to be operational during this time, including for new business and new clients. To comply with government guidance, our eleven branches are closed to the public but our fee earner teams are working remotely, to ensure that we continue to provide excellent client service.
Please email or telephone your usual lawyer or team. Alternatively, please telephone the branch most convenient to you during normal office hours or email firstname.lastname@example.org at any time. Emails to this address are being regularly monitored and forwarded to the correct person and we will respond to you as soon as possible. It may take a little longer than usual for our phones to be answered so please bear with us.
