Belfast, 25 November 2020

Skurio, the UK Digital Risk Protection company, today announced that Lex Mundi, the world’s leading network of independent law firms, has selected Skurio to deliver Digital Risk Protection to its member firms globally.

Lex Mundi’s 150+ member firms will have access to the Skurio Digital Risk Protection platform as part of an innovative programme that provides their member firms with introductions to state-of-the-art technology products. Skurio’s cybersecurity solution will protect their business-critical data by identifying potential cyber threats and detecting data leaks across their digital supply chains. The Skurio platform automatically searches the surface, deep and Dark Web for the firm’s data and alerts them instantly if any is found, so they can take action quickly to mitigate risk or prevent attacks.

Skurio’s CEO Jeremy Hendy said: “We are delighted to have been chosen by such a prestigious group as the solution to protect their member firms from digital risk. Lex Mundi member firms are pioneers in the legal world who take cybersecurity very seriously and are leading the way in ensuring their clients are protected. Adding Skurio to their portfolio allows Lex Mundi  firms to extend their defences beyond their network perimeters, protecting their data wherever it lives.”

He adds, “The legal industry has always been a prime target for cybercriminals, due to the highly sensitive nature of the data they handle. A recent report found that in Q1 of 2020,  100% of the law firms studied had been targeted by attackers. Fortunately, the legal sector performs well compared to other industries in cybersecurity defences and adopting Digital Risk Protection is a natural next step to enhancing this.”

Gordon Vala-Webb, Senior Advisor of Technology and Innovation at Lex Mundi said: “We are very pleased to work with Skurio to provide this best in class Digital Risk Protection solution to our members.”
