HOW JXG CAN HELP WITH COMPLIANCE FOR LEGAL SECTOR
Law firms have a vast volume of data about all aspects of people’s lives from conveyancing, family law, wills & probate to Commercial information. There is a lot of great software out which cuts out some of the paper volume and keeps data electronically safe but ‘the law’ does still like a paper copy!
How do you ensure the security of data within your practice? With such personal information it’s vital that all parties involved are trained. As part of this I offer training on site and training videos to give your staff the tools and knowledge they need to understand Data Protection and Cyber Security.
How would your law firm respond to a ‘Data Subject Access Request’ or ‘Right to be Forgotten’ request, bearing in mind you now have 30 days to comply? JXG can help you put workable plans in place and take the pain out of such requests.
JXG has helped Law firms with their GDPR compliance which can also be viewed as a great opportunity to get all that paper in order!
We can help your business stay on top of its compliance

SO WHAT’S THE NEXT STEP?
LAW FIRMS DATA PROTECTION
Making sure your policies are correct, up to date and available on-line is also a big part of your businesses compliance and something that could be looked at during a compliance inspection. This is something JXG could assist you with and help you plan for throughout the year.
We are your insurance policy. The ICO investigation can issue fines of up to £18m. That’s a worst case scenario but it’s a sobering thought that the average fine is around £100,000 – how would your business survive? We ensure you not only protect your clients’ data but your business.
Let’s Get Started
Data Protection (GDPR) Project Management
This involves an audit, action log, gap analysis, policy reviews, 3rd party due diligence and a library of checklists and procedures. JXG can provide training for your staff or recommend alternatives. This is also available as a toolkit providing you with the materials to complete yourself.
What would you do if your staff couldn’t get into the office one day? Or you suffered a cyber-attack? Business Continuity goes hand in hand with Data Protection in terms of protecting your data and having the right back up procedures in place should you ever have an IT hack or a fire!
Data Protection (GDPR) Annual Check
The ICO recommends that Data Protection procedures are reviewed on an annual basis to ensure they are still relevant, current and to maintain compliance. This is a fresh pair of eyes reviewing your procedures and checking you’ve included anything new from the past 12 months.
Compliance is like an insurance policy, you often don’t need it until it happens! So, you don’t necessarily remember how to do everything, all the time. That’s where JXG comes in, we help lessen the load to ensure you stay on top of everything. Find out more about how we can help.
