We are delighted to announce that Harold G walker Solicitors has become one of the first legal firms in Dorset to have been awarded the Government’s cyber security accreditation, Cyber Essentials. In achieving certification to the government-backed Cyber Essentials scheme, the legal firm’s IT systems were assessed by an independent company for compliance to a set of five key controls:

• Secure configuration
• Boundary firewalls and internet gateways
• Access control
• Patch management
• Malware protection

Nicola Lowe, Managing Partner at Harold G Walker Solicitors said: “We take cyber security and the protection of our Client’s data very seriously. We want our Clients to be assured that when they do business with us we are doing everything possible to protect their data. This means having the policies, processes and people in place to maintain the confidentiality and the integrity of our systems. This accreditation highlights our ongoing commitment to ensuring the security and protection of our IT systems and online assets as a whole.”
