Norton Peskett has achieved Cyber Essentials accreditation. This scheme was introduced by the government in April 2014 to help organisations and their customers protect themselves against common cyber attacks. Law firms are an attractive target for cyber attacks as they hold sensitive client information and handle significant funds.

Businesses and organisations that achieve the Cyber Essentials mark are minimising risks against the two common types of cyber attack. Phishing, which is malware infection generated by users clicking on malicious email attachments or website links, and hacking, whereby criminals exploit known vulnerabilities in internet connected servers and devices using widely available tools and techniques.

Richard Stone, IT Manager says, “We take cyber security very seriously and the Cyber Essentials certification can only help to give our clients confidence that we will protect their confidential matters.”

CORONAVIRUS

We are taking preventative steps to minimise the risk of coronavirus in the workplace, in line with or beyond the guidance received from the Government and Public Health England. Ensuring the health and well-being of both staff and clients is of paramount importance to us, whilst at the same time seeking to maintain a high level of service.

We are no longer carrying out face-to-face appointments but using telephone or online facilities. All email addresses and telephone numbers you are currently using can be used going forward unless we tell you otherwise.

It is now required that we impose office closures for clients, but please be assured we have a robust business continuity plan that enables us to remote work as though we are still in the office.

We are happy to discuss your concerns regarding how this pandemic will affect you or your business and how we can help. We remain committed to the safety of our clients and people related to our business and are confident that the steps introduced will help minimise disruption
