As part of our ongoing commitment towards prioritising cyber security, protecting our business and clients, Freshfield has gained the national Cyber Essentials accreditation.

The Government-backed scheme helps businesses guard against cyber-attacks and evidences how an organisation is meeting standards of protection in cyber security through annual assessments.

The Cyber Security Breaches Survey, organised by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport as part of the National Cyber Strategy in 2022, found that during the last 12 months, 39 per cent of UK businesses identified an attack.

Certain sectors have been prone to cyber attached. Nearly half of Britain’s manufacturers (42 per cent) have been victims of cyber crime in the last 12 months, with over a quarter (26 per cent) reporting significant financial losses as a result – according to the Cybersecurity: UK Manufacturing report.

Freshfield’s CEO Simon Turner said: “We already have a robust information and data protection eco-system but by getting Cyber Essentials certified, we are further demonstrating to our clients, partners, people and stakeholders that we are taking effective measures to secure client information and data.”
