We've added another event to our 2016 calendar. We've booked to exhibit at the "Law Firms & Cyber-Attack Conference: Prevent, Detect, Defend" on 5th October at the University of London. Cyber-crime is a national-scale problem, estimated to cost the UK £27 billion every year. Delegates will hear from high-level speakers discussing cyber-crime threats, law firms' vulnerabilities and cyber-protection measures. Attendees are invited to come and chat with us about the cyber-security features within our software and outsourcing services. Find out more on our events web page.
