Cyber security lessons for Law Firms

Why it's so important

For law firms the safety and security of their own and clients’ data is not only a legal and compliance requirement, it is also essential to their growth - and even survival. You only need to think of the recent  ‘Panama Papers’ hacking news story at the law firm Mossack Fonesca, which earlier this year announced it would cease trading, to appreciate just how important it is.

Taking back your time with Windows 10

Despite some people claiming they never have enough time, we all share the same 24 hours in a day. And now, more than ever perhaps, it seems like those 24 hours are just not enough. In the digital age, people feel more overwhelmed than ever and most of us would love more time – not necessarily time to do more work, but more time to do what we love. Microsoft have recognised this and made Windows 10’s most recent updates geared towards helping you reclaim the most precious of assets – time.

In good company

 Virtuoso is delighted to announce that we have become a Corporate Partner of the Royal Aeronautical Society, the world’s only professional body dedicated to aerospace.

Founded in 1866 and with its HQ in Mayfair the Society promotes the highest professional standards and provides a central forum for sharing knowledge.  This is one of the reasons why Virtuoso, a much younger organisation but with a similar approach to standards and knowledge, decided to become a Corporate Partner.

Other considerations are the many briefings (open only to Corporate Partners) with a wide range of speakers and topics as well as the excellent networking opportunities these offer to our clients. The quality and range of meeting rooms and hospitality gives Virtuoso the opportunity to host customer meetings in the heart of Mayfair in surroundings that contribute to every discussion.

A change of perspective

Posted by Gerald Martin

 Virtuoso is proud to sponsor the Honourable Company of Air Pilots London Schools Gliding scheme.

This offers students of secondary schools and academies in London the opportunity to take part in a heavily subsidised day out at a British Gliding Association (BGA) Gliding Club. For only £8 each (the commercial rate is usually £90-100) students will receive a flight in a glider under the instruction of an experienced qualified instructor.

Smiles are the order of the day and not just because of the excitement of flying! Students enjoy the structured environment of an operational airfield and grow in confidence as they engage with others including the committed and enthusiastic volunteers without whom this scheme would not be possible.

Feedback from schools has been very positive as students develop teamwork and communication skills and start to see broader horizons and new education and career options.
