Electronic communication is fast, efficient and cost-effective, but, according to PwC, the number of detected incidents of cyber-crime in the UK jumped by 48% in 2014.
High-profile hacking incidents are regularly in the national, and international, news headlines and we expect the 2015 statistics to increase further.
In the face of this ever-growing threat, Fitzallan is acutely aware of the need to protect our clients’ data from attack.
In addition to the enterprise-level security used in our office network, we communicate with clients’ private email addresses via an encrypted email system.
Our aim is to take every reasonable measure to keep our clients’ sensitive information ‘off the grid’, making it as hard as possible for hackers to gain access to it.
The security of client data is a matter we will continue to take very seriously and we aim to remain ‘ahead of the curve’ for your protection.
