Solicitors – Managing & Mitigating ‘What If?’
At KS Services we specialise in managing and mitigating the ‘What If?’ scenario.
We are experts in the field of IT Risk & Business Continuity and understand the pressures that face the legal profession in areas of;
- Practice Risk Management
- Data Protection
- Business Continuity
We also understand the mandatory requirements of the Legal Services Commission (LSC), The Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) and The Law Society’s Lexcel Practice Standard to ensure;
- Data Protection
- Data/System Backup
- Data/System Recovery
These challenges are succinctly put in Section 7 of the LSC stating;
“You must use all reasonable endeavours to prevent the loss, disclosure or corruption of any information relating to Contract Work held by you on your IT System. You must make up-to-date daily back-ups of such information which is in electronic format and store such backups on a regular basis off site. If an Unplanned Interruption occurs, which significantly impacts on your ability to perform Contract Work you will promptly notify us and provide details of the remedial action taken by you. You must ensure that all information relating to Contract Work held on your IT System can be recovered as soon as reasonably practicable following an Unplanned Interruption.”
Having been established in West Yorkshire for over 17 years, we have been working with and supporting the legal profession throughout that time. KS Services are able to offer a set of products and solutions that more than satisfy both regulatory and good practice standards.
