The Solvings team escaped the office and headed for the bright lights of the capital last week to spread the message of Cyber Security and good IT management to the legal eagles of London at the Legalex conference.
Held in the ExCel arena, Legalex is the first national event and conference which focusses entirely on the ‘Business Behind Law’. It was fantastic to meet owners of legal firms and practices and have the opportunity to encourage them to take a proactive approach to securing their systems. The more common (and far more costly) responsive ‘approach’ – only taking action once a breach has taken place – being the alternative. It was great to hear that many firms are getting their networks secured and training their staff in secure data handling methods.
Associate Les Pritchard gave an informative and entertaining seminar on methods available for securing data. We weren’t sure where he was going at first with this slide… but he proved that gazelles are, in their own way, related to the issue (if you want to find out how… you’ll have to get in touch!).
Back at the office, stationery supplies replenished thanks to a few free pens from our neighbouring exhibitors, we’re looking forward to getting back in touch with all our new acquaintances, both visitors and fellow exhibitors alike.
