Practice Management

The role of legal practitioners is becoming ever more complex. In the last 18 months alone, we have seen new protocols such as the European Parliament’s GDPR regulation and HMRC’s Making Tax Digital initiative shake up processes within the UK’s legal practices. With the upcoming revisions to the Solicitors Regulation Authority’s Account Rules in November, further change is on the horizon and practice managers must ensure that their firms make provisions in order to adapt and remain successful.

Various trends are impacting law firms in 2019 and there is one common theme – technology. PWC’s Law Firms’ Survey 2018 reported that “100% of Top 10 and 40% of Top 11–25 firms view technology as the key challenge facing the legal sector over the next 2 years.”

Cybersecurity and data protection

The PWC Information Security Breaches Survey 2015 report states that 90% of large organisations and 74% of small organisations have encountered a security breach.

 

In 2016 ByrneWallace became the first large firm in Ireland to have ISO 27001 certification. Firms with ISO 27001 certification must have a totally comprehensive system of security measures that extend beyond just IT.

Now, of course, the firm has to ensure it complies with the GDPR as well as. Part of ByrneWallace’s security strategy is to manage the risk of email data breaches – one of the most common cybersecurity threats a firm faces.
