Due to the nature of the information barristers handle daily, when it comes to data protection the Bar is a high-risk profession. With the rising number of cyber-attacks on barristers and chambers adding to the concern surrounding more traditional risks, such as the leaving of papers on a train, the Bar Council has identified GDPR and information security as one of the biggest challenges facing the profession. The consequences for barristers, chambers and the profession of failing at GDPR compliance are enormous.
Who should get certified?
who have heightened responsibility for the protection of chambers due to their role as Head or as a member of chambers' Management Committee
rely on publicly funded work
work with specialised and highly regulated industries
want to remain or become competitive within their specialist area
wish to ensure robust GDPR compliance to avoid fines
wish to protect professional reputation and practice
want a fast, effective way to meet legislative and BSB required standards on GDPR
