Mitigate Cyber Security are pleased to announce that QualitySolicitors Mewies has been accredited with the Cyber Essentials certification. We would like to send our congratulations and thanks for certifying with us.

QualitySolicitors Mewies is a leading legal advisor to the people and businesses of Skipton, Craven and the Yorkshire Dales, part of QualitySolicitors, a national network of independent law firms.

Mitigate’s Managing Director, Stephen Robinson, has said: “Cyber Essentials is increasingly becoming a must-have standard for firms across the legal sector, and it is my pleasure to congratulate QualitySolicitors Mewies on their achievement. This is a signal to their clients, partners and the wider community they serve that they are dedicated to cyber security.”

Emma Hayton, Practice Manager of QualitySolicitors Mewies said: “Cyber crime is a real risk for law firms right now and we wanted to do what we could to protect ourselves and our clients’ data and money.  We are Lexcel accredited and Lexcel has its own pretty stringent demands with regards to Information Management but we felt that becoming Cyber Essentials accredited was the next step.  We are proud to have achieved this recognition and will be continuing to review our systems and procedures to protect ourselves as best we can from the ever evolving risks.“

Cyber Essentials checks that the company’s IT infrastructure is safe in the following areas:

•           Boundary Firewalls and Internet Gateways
•           Secure Configurations
•           User Access Control
•           Malware Protection
•           Patch Management

There are two levels to Cyber Essentials – Cyber Essentials which is the certification of a self-assessment questionnaire and Cyber Essentials Plus, which verifies the self-assessment questionnaire with some on-site checks and vulnerability assessments.
