We love getting out and about to chat face-to-face with you, our clients and prospective clients. Even better when we can get together in an informal setting and talk more freely. That's why we've just booked the Law Society Presidents & Secretaries Conference being held on 5th to 6th May in London. Visit our stand during the conference or catch up with us at the evening dinner over a drink or dance!
We remain just as committed to corporate philanthrophy and we're hoping 2017 will be our best year yet. We kick-started our charitable campaigns in January with our monthly dress-down-Friday fundraiser which saw us donate £55 to the Marfan Association. February's dress-down-Friday monies will go to R Charity.
Two of our Brighton office staff, Richard Salt our IT Director and Gavin Downs our Software Developer, are doing the Brighton half marathon on 26th February for Cancer Research. If you're able to sponsor the pair, please visit their secure JustGiving web page.
Cyber crime's a fast-growing area of crime with attacks increasing in frequency, severity and sophistication. Cyber crime now poses such a serious threat that this past week alone has seen the official launch of the National Cyber Security Centre in London and Philip Hammond, Chancellor of the Exchequer, pledge £1.9bn to strengthen Britain's cyber defences.
The legal industry is a prime target for cyber criminals. Access our re-published '10 top tips on desktop security' article to introduce much-needed security measures in order to create a robust, reliable and safe cyber environment.
We're spreading a little love this Valentine's Day. Here's why we're a match made in heaven:-

3. Security measures + compliance features = best practice assurance
4. Robust software + dependable services = business continuity planning
5. Looked-after staff + strong management team = high-quality care
The weather forecast for the rest of this week is thundersnow, blizzards, Arctic temperatures, gales and ice.
