The Infosec Cloud Cyber Security Awareness Training and Testing (SATT) managed service has been awarded ‘Highly Commended’ at the recent British Legal Awards. Receiving this recognition, within the the Supplier of the Year (Technology) category, is further endorsement of the effectiveness of the company’s service to stop IT End Users causing security incidents.
Organised by ‘Legal Week’, the awards were judged by an independent panel of judges comprising senior in-house lawyers, former managing and senior partners and other senior business figures.
Holding high value information and financial details, Legal Practices and Partnerships are particular targets for cyber criminals. Plus Firms have a high proportion of senior staff members who may be reluctant to follow corporate security procedures, and staff are under increasing time and workload pressures, making them even more vulnerable to today’s sophisticated cyber-attacks.
To help the legal sector protect their data, clients and reputation, and following an in-depth market evaluation, Infosec Cloud developed their own fully managed Security Awareness Training and Testing (SATT) service. The service was launched in 2014.
Today, nearly 80,000 IT End Users, across the UK, are enrolled on the Infosec Cloud SATT service. Legal customers include many of the top 200 law firms and all grade the service as ‘meets or exceeds expectations’ (quarterly satisfaction survey). The SATT service is applicable to organisations of all sizes, whether national or regional, plus the company is working with both LEXCEL assessors and Law Firm Networks.
Commenting on the awards, Infosec Cloud Managing Director, Pete Sherwood says: “This is great recognition for the service we have developed and the value it is providing to the Legal Sector in terms of keeping Firms and Partnerships cyber safe”.
Security awareness training is not new, however the way that it is delivered, tracked and kept front of mind by Infosec Cloud is new. The SATT service comprises both training and ongoing testing with focused remedial training. The company has invested in a dedicated SATT team that researches, builds and tracks the simulated cyber-attacks, with bespoke content created for each customer.
The SATT service is fully managed so that there are no additional time requirements for the IT team. Plus as an ‘independent’ third party, Infosec Cloud ensures all staff, regardless of seniority, are included.
The British Legal Awards serve as a showcase for the achievements of one of the country’s most successful sectors. Hosted by Legal Week in association with The City of London Law Society, the glittering awards ceremony was attended by 1,000 lawyers, representing the cream of the UK’s legal community. The ceremony took place on Thursday 30 November at Finsbury Square, London EC2.
