Our Approach

In order to keep abreast of changes with regards to Data Protection, fraud alerts and anything else that can be committed on a computer, industry professionals regularly meet up at round tables to discuss best practice, upcoming changes and the impact this will have on the sector.


The readership for Today’s Legal Risk has grown since it’s creation. It now boasts over 500 subscribers to it’s free weekly newsletter, and this number continues to grow on a weekly basis.
