As a barrister, you spend your days dealing with sensitive information and confidential data. Your clients trust you to keep their information safe, but are you doing enough to protect it from cyber threats?
Cyber security is no longer a topic that can be ignored or pushed to the side. Cyber attacks are on the rise and the legal profession is not immune to them. A cyber attack can lead to reputational damage, loss of client trust, and potentially financial loss.
Therefore, it is essential for barristers’ chambers to take cyber security seriously and take proactive steps to protect their practice from cyber threats. This is where Bells IT Support can help.
As a leading IT support provider, Bells IT Support has extensive experience in providing cybersecurity solutions for barristers chambers. Our cyber security offering includes a range of features to ensure your practice is fully protected.
Our Core Services
Cloud Application Alerting
We provide continuous monitoring of your core business applications, including M365. By keeping track of login attempts we can take action to block IPs and/or countries that have a history of failed login attempts. For example, if someone tries to access an email account from the Philippines, we can quickly block and report this activity. In the event that an unauthorised user successfully logs in using the correct username and password combination, we can swiftly log them out, change the password, and block the IP address to prevent further access. We also offer the option to create “Safe Zones” that allow users who frequently travel to specific countries to access your applications without being blocked. This is crucial to protect your cloud services and preventing potential security breaches.
File Inspection and Reporting
With our File Inspection and Reporting, we can generate reports on the files stored on every computer. In case of a lost or stolen device, we can provide a detailed account of the data that was present on the machine. This is essential for reporting security breaches or compromises to regulatory bodies such as the ICO and insurance companies. To ensure the accuracy of our reporting, we compile monthly reports that help us to eliminate any false positives.
Complete Endpoint Protection
Our Complete Endpoint Protection ensures that every device is safeguarded against viruses, malware, and other security threats. It also includes Data Loss Prevention and ensures compliance with data regulation standards. By implementing this solution, each machine and the company’s data is protected against unauthorised access and potential theft. Furthermore, it serves as a foundation for achieving compliance and certifications, such as Cyber Essentials, ISO, and many others..
Network Appliance Monitoring
Our Network Appliance Monitoring service ensures that any device connected to the organisation’s networks is thoroughly examined to determine its purpose, including those not managed by Bells IT. This solution evaluates the level of protection provided by each device and notifies our service desk of any unknown devices that connect to the network. This is crucial for identifying potential security breaches and preventing unauthorised access by unknown or malicious devices. With this service, we can quickly detect if a device is attempting to snoop within the network and take immediate action to safeguard against potential threats.
Our Microsoft Licensing solution not only includes mailboxes and the Microsoft Office Suite for each user but also provides advanced security and endpoint policies. We also focus on Mobile Device Management, ensuring that devices are equipped with core security and compliance capabilities. With this solution, your organisation can enhance its security posture, mitigate potential threats, and improve compliance with industry regulations.
Email and Web Filtering
We undertake comprehensive scanning of both internal and external emails to ensure that their contents are legitimate. This solution minimises the volume of spam and bulk emails and prevents spoofing emails from reaching your organisation’s network. In addition, our Web Filtering feature examines every website accessed by your employees, identifying and blocking any hidden code that may execute malicious applications in the background. With this service, your organisation can enjoy enhanced security and peace of mind knowing that potential threats are proactively mitigated.
Dark Web Monitoring
Our Dark Web Monitoring involves continuous monitoring of your organisation’s domain and assets within the dark web. By actively tracking this space, we can quickly identify any potential threats or security breaches and take immediate action to protect your organisation’s reputation and assets in the deep web and dark web. This solution is designed to safeguard your sensitive data and online presence, ensuring that your organisation remains secure and protected from cyber threats.
End User Training
Designed to keep your staff up-to-date with the latest cyber security training, this service includes simulated phishing tests to assess how your employees respond to potential spam, webinars, questionnaires, and other training materials. All training progress and results are reported in monthly reviews, allowing staff to track their progress and stay compliant with your organisation’s cyber security training program. With this service, your organisation can enhance its security posture by ensuring that employees are educated on best practices and equipped to identify and mitigate potential threats.
Password management and administration
Our Password Management and Administration service offers two key solutions to enhance password security across your organisation. Firstly, our mobile app allows users to reset their passwords for their domain and email accounts from their mobile device. Secondly, our secure password management platform allows users to store their important usernames and passwords within a single, highly secure platform. With this service, your organisation can improve password security by reducing the risk of weak or compromised passwords, streamlining password management, and enabling secure access to crucial accounts.
Security Operations Centre and Response planning
Our Security Operations Centre and Response Planning service provides around-the-clock monitoring of threats to your organisation. Our team follows a comprehensive process of Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover to ensure that in the event of a cyber security issue, we can respond quickly and provide guidance to your organisation on how best to manage the situation. This service includes 24/7 monitoring of alerts, advanced threat detection and analysis, and rapid incident response to minimise damage and downtime
IT Support, Workstation and Server Backups
Bells IT provides comprehensive IT support for the organisation during business hours, with a guaranteed response time of 2 hours. Outside of these hours, support is available with an 8-hour response time. This service also includes workstation backups, which are replicated in real-time to an offsite location, and server backups performed both onsite and offsite. In the event of a disaster recovery, server virtualization is available.
Additionally, Bells IT offers compliance assistance to meet Cyber Essentials requirements and assist in other tenders, documentation, and compliance for the organisation. This can be especially helpful when tendering for projects.
Hardware as a service
Bells IT provides all the necessary hardware, including servers, workstations, laptops, monitors, and networking appliances, and ensures that they are running efficiently. The hardware is replaced when it becomes end of life or out of warranty, so businesses can stay up-to-date without the added expense of purchasing new equipment.
