Lexcel Compliance

Lexcel Compliance

Secure, Comply, Certify is our unique three-step approach to achieving certification to Lexcel. Whilst many consultants will help you to implement the standard, ours go one step further by working with you to implement cyber security first, which strengthens your compliance to Lexcel.

As a large part of Lexcel is centred around data protection and client confidentiality your framework should include cyber security measures to assess the external threats which could compromise the security of your information. We have established relationships with consultants and certification bodies to implement Secure, Comply, Certify – a 360 degree approach to information security.

About Lexcel

Throughout the Lexcel practice management standard there are references to security of systems and confidentiality of client data. In order to successfully achieve this certification, legal firms are required to demonstrate that their assets are secure from external threats by undertaking regular penetration testing.

Our Lexcel consultants can help you to identify the physical risks to your assets from a potential cyber threat whilst advising you on the relevant sections of the Lexcel standard. Using the results from a penetration test, we can strengthen your information security policies and procedures, and provide a full assessment of the external environment.
