BLS welcomes Warner McCall Resilience as new cyber security partner

Warner McCall Resilience joins Bristol Law Society as cyber security partner

Helping BLS members protect their clients, brand and reputation from the damage caused by cyber crime.

Warner McCall Resilience (WMR) has joined Bristol Law Society (BLS) to help BLS members navigate the evolving cyber threat landscape. With cyber security continuing to be an important topic for those in the legal sector, BLS were keen to work with an experienced partner to offer pro-active cyber security advice to their members.

Warner McCall Resilience are cyber security and resilience experts, entrusted by government departments to deal with threats from nation states. In recent years, they have leveraged their experience gained in defence and national intelligence, to help those in the commercial world successfully defend, respond, recover and learn from cyber attacks.

Johnny Norris, CEO of Warner McCall Resilience said “It’s well-known that the legal sector is regarded as a key target for cyber criminals, as they hold sensitive client information, handle significant funds and are a key enabler in commercial and business transactions. We are therefore excited to be working with Bristol Law Society to help their members understand what steps can be taken to build resilience to cyber threats, and to help them protect themselves from the financial and reputational damage that cyber crime can inflict.”

Ben Holt, President of Bristol Law Society said “We are looking forward to working with Warner McCall Resilience in supporting our members, and their clients. With the SRA recently reporting that “Everyone is at risk”, we felt that this was the ideal time for such a partnership. Through a series of jointly curated workshops, events and insight pieces, we will be working with WMR to help our members with this evolving and complex topic.”

Warner McCall Resilience will be running its first workshop for BLS members on 28th January, looking at the threat environment and how those in the legal sector can comply with the SRA’s risk recommendations. To find out more about the workshop, please view the website or contact
